Actually like many such devices these days, it seems like how you can
use the the
Edimax is dependent on software configuration.   By default, devices
like this typically
come up in wi-fi router mode.    According to the manual located here:

it can be put into: Wi-Fi Router, Access Point, and Range Extender
modes.   Which it is in depends on software
configuration and how the Edimax physically connects to the rest of
your network.  It might be a good idea to verify
that the device is correctly configured.
