Connect to this wireless network.
4. Open the Internet Explorer web browser, enter http://edimax.setup
You will be prompted to enter a user name and password. The default user
name is admin, and the default password is 1234.
<Windows>
<Mac>
5. You will be brought to the first setup page. The first step of the setup
process is to name the router, and to give it a security key. The default
name of the device is the device ID, while the security key must be
between 8 and 32 characters. After security key have been set, click ‘NEXT’
to continue.
6. The travel router will save settings and reboot. The device will
automatically disconnect from your computer while it reboots.

IV.a. Wired Connection Mode
Wired connection mode allows the travel router to receive a wired Internet
connection via its Ethernet port, and broadcast that connection wirelessly.
1. Insert the Internet-connected LAN cable into the travel router’s Ethernet
port, then select the Wired Mode option on the setup screen.
2. The travel router will detect your WAN type and test the Internet
connection.
3. If the WAN connection uses a dynamic IP and the connection is successful,
you will see a final congratulation screen. If you need to enter your ISP
information, user name, password, or DNS information, please follow the
on-screen prompts.
After the connection is successfully established, you may choose to start
using the Internet immediately, or perform more advanced configuration.
On this screen, you have the option of setting a bookmark to
http://edimax.go, which will lead you directly to the travel router’s
browser-based setup screen.

IV.b. WISP Mode
In WISP mode, the travel router receives a wireless signal and broadcasts it to
multiple wireless devices.
1. Select WISP mode on the setup screen.
2. The travel router will automatically scan for available Wi-Fi networks.
Select the network you wish to connect to. If the network requires a
security key, enter it here.
If the network you wish to connect to does not appear, please try clicking
on the “Refresh” button, or move the travel router closer to the root
wireless access point.
If the wireless network you wish to connect to is not broadcasting its SSID
(ie, it has chosen to hide its ID), you may connect to it manually if you know
its SSID.
*Select one device
*enter its security key.
Press “NEXT” button to continue.

3. The travel router will save the changed settings and may reboot. If it does,
reconnect to the travel router by searching available wireless networks for
the device name you set in step 5 of the Quick Installation section. Enter
the 8 to 32 character security key you set.
4. After reconnecting, the travel router will verify the connection. If the
connection is successful, the setup screen will tell you the ID of the wireless
network it has connected to, as well as the security key. You will then be
prompted to allow the router to set up Internet settings automatically, or
you may choose to manually set up Internet settings yourself. Selecting
‘Setup Internet Automatically’ will work in most cases. If the router is
unable to set up Internet automatically, it will then prompt you to set up
settings manually. For details on how to set up the connection manually,
please see the user manual.
5. After Internet settings are set up, you will see a final congratulation screen.
On this screen, you have the option of setting a bookmark to
http://edimax.go, which will lead you directly to the travel router’s
browser-based setup screen.
You may now start surfing the Internet immediately, or you may choose to
perform more advanced configuration.

You will also see final confirmation of the travel router’s name and security
key, remember this name and key for your another wireless client device to
connect to it later on.
V. Connecting to the Travel Router
Once connected to the Internet, whether through a wired connection or
through WISP mode, other wireless devices can connect to this travel router
and access the Internet through it.
1. Your wireless device searches nearby Wi-Fi networks for the ID of the travel
router, and connects to it.
Example:
<Windows>
<Andriod phone>
2. Enter the wireless security key you set previously.
3. Repeat for as many wireless devices as you wish to connect to the Internet.
The travel router will broadcast the wireless Internet signal, making it a
personal hotspot for you and your wireless devices.
9

computer or a USB power adapter).
2. Hold the body of the device with your hand, then press and hold the
WPS/Reset button with the end of a paper clip or a pen nub for
approximately 10 seconds, until the blue LED indicator begins to flash.
When the LED begins to flash, you may release the button, and the device
will begin to reset to factory default settings.
3. The LED will first stay steadily lit for approximately 10 to 15 seconds. The
LED will then begin to flash rapidly for an additional 10 to 15 seconds, as
the device reinitializes. When the blue LED remains lit without flashing, the
device has completed its reset process, and is ready for further
configuration.

This product includes software that is subject to the GNU General Public License version 2. The program is free software and
distributed without any warranty of the author. We offer, valid for at least three years, to give you, for a charge no more
than the costs of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source

Software“, der Autor stellt das Programm ohne irgendeine Gewährleistungen zur Verfügung. Wir bieten Ihnen für einen

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General
Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free
for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation’s software and to any other
program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Lesser
General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make
sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive
source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that
you know you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender
the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you
modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights
that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms
so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal
permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author’s protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for
this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they
have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors’ reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a
free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have
made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone’s free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be
distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The ‘“Program’“, below, refers to any such program or work, and a
‘“work based on the Program’“ means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work
containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language.
(Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term ‘“modification’“.) Each licensee is addressed as ‘“you’“.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The
act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a
work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on
what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program’s source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that
you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep
15
intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the
Program a copy of this License along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in
exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and
copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these
conditions:
a)
You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any
change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the
Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this
License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started
running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an
appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty)
and that users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of
this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement,
your work based on the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the
Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms,
do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as
part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License,
whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote
it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent
is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the
Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under
the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a)
Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under
the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than
your cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding
source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for
software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This
alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or
executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work,
complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus
the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code
distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
itself accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering
equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third
parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any
attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights
under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their
licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to
modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.
Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of
this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it.
16
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a license
from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not
impose any further restrictions on the recipients’ exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing
compliance by third parties to this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent
issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of
this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy
simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not
distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License
would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is
intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity
of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system,
which is implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of
software distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to
decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces,
the original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution
limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such
case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to time.
Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or
concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which applies
to it and ‘“any later version’“, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later
version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you
may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions are different,
