Question about Edimax BR-6114Wg Router (BR6114WG)
This happens pretty regularly (as in several times a day): The router becomes unresponsive. Lights on it still blink and it *appears* to be working and still shows up on the list of available wireless stations but no connected PCs can access the internet, each other, or the router (via its IP address). The signal strength shows as great or excellent so it's not a problem of a weak signal. Also, when it does "this" I can't successfully repair connections on my wired/wireless PCs. Unplugging the router and plugging it back in fix the problem temporarily. I've tried resetting, upgrading the firmware, downgrading the firmware, etc to no avail. I have a friend with this same router and the same problems came up after a year or so of having it.
Depending on how your router is set up, it may be a DNS problem. Start from beggining and make sure your router is enabled for wireless, wep or other encryption is off, DHCP is enabled for assigning IP addresses automatically. Run this programme on pc's, click Start>run then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter. Clean out your old cached and temp files. Go to your wireless adapters properties and ensure that they are set to obtain ip address automatically in TCP/IP settings. Restart systems and hopefully you are away. Every time you use windows to repair the connection it will try to re-new IP addreses, but it won't be the one your router uses, so don't use it, as you will lose connection to the router.
