My Edimax EW-7206APg was not accessible too. Last thing i did was MAC cloning. Factory reset button didn't work, no matter how long I holded it! Firmware version is 1.32. I solved it now too: 1) Turn off power. 2) Turn power on and wait 6-10 sec only, not longer! 3) Press and hold reset button till PWR LED starts flickering. AP will be in factory default mode.

Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings enable wireless then WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.If you are able to see password in * or # then you need o add new password but if you are able to read it then note down it then you can connect with it.

    Thank you for your quick response. I tried what you told me: resetting the access point by pressing reset button for 10 seconds after disconnecting the LAN wire and turning it off and on but it still does not work. I do not think it is reseting. Should the lights go off or blink when it is resetting? Nothing happens.

    I tried addresses but it did not work. This address worked for me before I put zeros in the MAC address in the clone MAC address fields. I also tried addresses and as you suggested but it does not work. My computer settings were not changed from when it did work for me and I do not have a gateway address in my computer network settings.

    Is my AP broken or is there a way I can force a reset on the device?



  • Go to your network adapter tcp ip porperty and make set your computer ip as subnet mask and gateway ip as

    I fixed it!!!

    Just to let you know that I figured maybe I am pushing the reset button with something to wide (I used a ballpoint pen before). I tried with a pin and the device reste and is working.

    Thanks a lot for your help!!


  • Yes you need to press RESET buton with tiny pin so it ground the the RESET button.
    Then your access point RESET press hold for 10 seconds.
    Then you can access it with default link.

    Thank you again for your reply. I finnaly got the device to be recognized by the PC.

    My main problem is that I am trying to get the Acces Point to act as a wireless network for a PC. I am not sure if I need to set it as "Station Ad hoc" or "Station Infrastructure" mode. I tried a few times and it seems to do infrastructure better.

    My problem is when I set my WEP password on teh device I cannot connect successfully to my network in the screen where I select it from all other rsirtes. Only after after I clone the mac address it works but then the device does not conenct with the PC at all and I need to reset it.

    Can you help me please?



  • After RESET it access your router with computer .
    then go to wireless and security disble MAC security or MAc filterring.
    Configur your router as Access point (AP) or infrasturcture mode/
    then save settings and restart router then check.
    Also enable DHCP in router and then enable Ip get automtic in all computer's netowrk adapter tcp ip property.
    Then check.
    Let me know if you need further assistance.

How set password

You need to download the manual for this Middle East version of the access point/ wireless extender. Page 4 covers resetting the router so a new password can be put in.
If you press and hold the reset button for more than 4 seconds, the Access Point will reset to the factory defaults (Warning: Your settings will be deleted and replaced with the factory default settings).

I can't log in cause ai forgat the password

There is a hole behind your wireless access point that has a reset button inside of it, push it with a pen or something similar that can fit into the hole and hold it in there for a few seconds. The access point will now reset default configuration, and you will be able to set the access point up from scratch.

Slow internet download speed from my edimax ew 7206 access point

You dont say what internet access technology you are using - DSL, Cable Modem, satellite, etc.
It is possible that your aggregate speed is being throttled by excessive traffic somewhere ELSE in the network and it may have nothing to do with the link from you access point. When you reset it, it may attempt to operate at the maximum speed only to be throttled by some other choke point in the network.
When you reconnect and get the 4-5 speed, how long does it last? Can you actually see the difference in performance? Most people cant tell the difference unless they are downloading large files.
