Have you been trying to login to the Edimax BR-6208AC router unsuccessfully? It might be time to reset the Edimax BR-6208AC router back to factory defaults. This is not the same thing as a reboot.
When you reboot a router you are simply cycling the power to the unit.No settings are changed.

Looking at the image below you can see the reset button is found on the back panel. It is also coupled with the WPS button. What is WPS?
While the router is on, press the reset button for at least 10 seconds or until the power LED button begins to flash. If you don't hold this button down for at least 10 seconds you initiate the WPS instead of resetting it like you wanted.
Remember a reset is erasing every single setting you have ever changed in the history of this device. We strongly recommend trying other troubleshooting techniques before you continue with this reset.
