Hello
I purchased an Edimax router BR-6428ns a while ago.
I notice that the router's date is incorrect.
It originally said a date in 2011 so I updated the firmware and now it says a date in April 2012. I updated to the latest firmware and now the date says september 2012.
The timezone is set to Wellington Auckland (I am in Christchurch)
I can change the time zone server (IP address only) it is set to 192.43.244.18 I tried another IP which I got from the Edimax website 209.132.176.4 but it doesn't make any difference.

Thanks
Ford

Neither of those are valid NTP servers.

Might pay to start with something that does work such as nz.pool.ntp.org which will originate from a pool of local NTP servers, or 0.pool.ntp.org if you're just interested in global ones.

Hello
No the router's time server area only accepts numbers
But thanks for your suggestion. It might come in useful in some other situation.
I've sent an email to Edimax.

If you router only accepts IP's rather than FQDN's you enter the IP address that either nz.pool.ntp.org or 0.pool.ntp.org correspond to. These are pools of servers so a simple ping will give you the first IP address such as

Pinging nz.pool.ntp.org [218.185.224.6] with 32 bytes of data:

Internet NZ runs their own NTP servers.

They have three servers are called s[1-3].ntp.net.nz for network devices (servers, routers) and three servers for consumer client machines called p[1-3].ntp.net.nz.

Just ping p1.ntp.net.nz (or p2.ntp.net.nz or p3.ntp.net.nz) and you'll know what IP address to use.

Who is your ISP?
Quite often the ISP will run their own own ntp server and you can use that one (or one of the suggestions above).

I don't know of many ISPs running NTP servers in New Zealand.

freitasm: I don't know of many ISPs running NTP servers in New Zealand.


There is ntp.orcon.net.nz and I'm sure there have been others in the past, but haven't checked recently.

Just use the Internet NZ servers and you can be with any ISP...

192.43.244.18 was a valid server run by NIST, but for unexplained reasons it was shut down with very little notice (12 days notice!)

See here: http://tf.nist.gov/tf-cgi/servers.cgi
