PPPoE over Edimax BR-6104K without a modem

Hello,

I've just bought a new Edimax BR-6104K and tried to set up my Internet connection through it but I couldn't following the instructions in the manual and in the quick installation guide.

My Internet is a PPPoE broadband connection but I don't have a modem installed.

I have a Windows XP station with 2 network interface cards that shared the Internet connection to my other PCs.

In addition to the configurations of the 2 NICs I have set a 3rd broadband connection with data supplied by the ISP (login, password, service name).

In 'Network Connections' it appears as [Type] 'broadband' and [Device Name] 'WAN Miniport (PPPOE)'.

Now I would like to use the router instead of the 2 NICs' PC.

In the router manual when referring to PPPoE connection configuration they imply a cable/DSL modem that I don't have.  

Can I still configure my Internet connection over Edimax BR-6104K or do I have to look for an ISP with cable modem Internet? when i connect my modem to my pc i can access internet but when i connect it modem to router to my pc i can not access internet. what will ido?

I am not sure if I understand you well.

You say:
My Internet is a PPPoE broadband connection but I don't have a modem installed.

What do you mean ?
You have a Broadband/ADSL modem, but you didn't install any software for it ?
(It is probably not necessary.)

So, I assume you do have a modem. You connect your modem to the wall outlet with a telephone cable.
Then then modem is connected with LAN cable to one of your PC with two NICs, you make Internet Connection Sharing, and ten from the second NIC of that PC, you connect (again) with LAN cable, your second PC.

If it is an ADSL or Cable modem connected with LAN cable, please follow this steps.

First RESET your Edimax router and disconnect all LAN cables if connected.

Connect your PC (the one with one NIC) to one of the 4 LAN ports of your Router wit a LAN cable.

Open My Network Places and then View network connections, or go to Control Panel and open Network Connections.

Right-Click on your LAN adapter and choose Properties, then double-click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

Set to 'Obtain IP address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS server addres automatically' (click OK). Now you are back to the previous window. Click and check (if it is not) 'Show icon notification when connected' and once again click OK.

After a fiew seconds you should get (near to the clock in the the right bottom of your desktop), a Network icon and a baloon message that your NIC is connected.

Right-click on the network icon and click STATUS, a window will open
and then click on SUPPORT tab.
You should see:
IP Addres: 192.168.2.100
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.2.1

Open your browser and type http://192.168.2.1

Now login as:
admin (default)
and password is: 1234 (default)

Click on GENERAL SETUP on Top-Left, and then on WAN (on the right side) and choose
PPPoE.
Click on 'More configuration'
Type your User Name and Password you have from your ISP.

Now Click on APLY, and again APLY !

The Router will restart in 30 Sec, and your NIC will reconnect.

Now connect your Modem to a WAN port of your Router with LAN cable. (***)

Now:
if you've typed your User Name and Password correctly in PPPoE fields,
and
if everything is OK with the service from your provider,

you should now be on Internet.

If not, then please check your User Name and Password with your Internet Service Provider, and ask them if they can see your router.

Now, get to the PC with two NICs.

Go to Control Pannel, and go to Network Connections.
Right-click on one of your NICs and click 'Disable'.
Check the other NIC if 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)' settings are set to Obtain IP addres and DNS - Automatically, and 'Show icon notification when connected' and once again click OK.

Connect the (enabled) NIC with LAN cable to another port of your router.

The second PC should be on Internet, too.


If you (somehow) realy don't have a modem, but you have a cable only, follow the above instructions to the point (***) and connect the cable to the WAN port of your router.

That's it!

Regards

Share a PPPoE connection without modem


I think the problem is that the modem is not giving enough ip addresses. Try configuring it. Some modems are also a router. This means that it has the capability to provide more ip address so that i can connect more pc.

Networking


Your router internet settings should depend on your ISP connection type. If you are on DSL, either your setting is PPPoE or just obtain IP automatically. If you have a username and password from ISP, select PPPoE and specify your username and pw. Check on the internet/WAN status if it says "Connected" and if it has Internet IP address.

Your modem should be plugged in to the internet port of the router while both your computers should be on plugged in to the LAN ports (numbered ports).

You may contact your router manufacturer for step by step assistance on the router setup. They should be able to restore your connection.

Configuring


hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router and repeat the same steps.

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username (email address format) and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix

Port Forwarding with BR-6104K


hope this helps
In vegas to forward a port with the zytell modem Sprint/Embarq our DSL provider you have to bridge your modem first and allow your router to pull your IP from your ISP. Then you can forward the port.
If you have DSL I would start by going to my ISP's website and look for instructions for setting up port forwarding or Bridging your modem.
Bridging your modem passes off traffic control to your router. on zytell modems you can also forward ports but bridging is much less technical
I have not run into CABLE providers cable modems having to do this
did you allow that port in your computers firewall?

Did you set up a static ip on the computer you want to forward your port for? sounds like it is required for you router

instruction site
http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Edimax/BR-6104K/ICUII.htm

to test the port connection you can go to http://whatsmyip.org on the left pane click on port scanner and choose custom to scan the port number you are attempting to open. you do have to have the application that will use that port running to get a result if it is a game ALT+TAB should let you out of the game without shutting it down to open a web browser this tool can save you a lot of time testing the port it will give you a open status when you have succeeded.
