Reset the Edimax BR-6504n

Do you know where the reset button is located? For the Edimax BR-6504n router you can find it on the back panel. I have circled it's location for you in the image below.

Press and hold this reset button for at least 20 seconds. If you don't hold this button down for the entire 20 seconds you end up initiating the WPS function. What is WPS?

Remember a reset like the one you are doing is erasing every single setting you have ever changed on this device. We recommend trying other methods of troubleshooting before you continue with this reset.

Login to the Edimax BR-6504n

Once you've reset and logged into the Edimax BR-6504n router you'll want to log into it. This is done by using the factory default username and password. Not sure where to find these? We have them listed for you in our Login Guide.

Tip: If the defaults aren't logging you in it might be because the reset button wasn't held down for long enough.

Change Your Password

Now that you've logged into the router we suggest setting a new password for it. This can be anything you want it to be, however keep in mind that a strong password contains no personal information and is 14-20 characters in length. For more help be sure to visit our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.

Tip: Keep yourself from losing your new password by writing it on a sticky note and attaching it to the bottom of your router.
