Here's a poser about a Dlink wbr-1310 passwords

I've searched for this problem on the web, without result. Perhaps one of you folks has heard of it and can point me in the right direction.

I have a Dlink wbr-1310 router, which worked fine under firmware 1.01, but I've had an interesting problem since I added the last firmware update (1.03 -- yes, I skipped 1.02, but I always assumed they were cumulative. Please slap me if I'm wrong).

Ever since the upgrade, about 24 hours (or so) after I set up the specifics I need for passwords, port forwarding, time, etc., etc., it seems I can no longer log on to the router. This happens whether or not I change the default password configuration after reset, and it does it for both the admin and user. I'm having to reset the router daily to access it (I wouldn't normally access it very often, it just so happens I had a couple tweaks to make the day following the upgrade, and I've been dealing with this ever since), since the passwords don't work. I'm absolutely sure the username and password were correct.

Any suggestions? (If you can point me to a website after a 5-second search, please don't flame me!)

FYI, I don't believe I was hacked. I run XP home and pro machines on the network. My port forwarding is telnet and ssh to a linux server, and I also run a dedicated camera security system.

More info if needed, I'm basically looking for a research site.

Edit: I did find one place where someone mentioned the same problem, and that recycling the power took care of it. But that's still a pain to do whenever you want access (although the security is better - lol).

I have the EXACT SAME problem with my wbr-1310.

It has happened twice now (this being the 2nd time).

I couldn't be bothered to reset the damn thing and set my options / ports allll over again (and getting a config.bin was out of the question at this point) so I figured I'd wait and wait until I REALLY needed to log in.... anyway I went out for the weekend and came back today to find that i was disconnected from the internet. My cable wasn't out, and my PC was ok... and the router LOOKED like it was ok... so i unplugged the power cord, waited a few seconds, and plugged it back in. Internet was back, I was happy...

I then thought "hey, why dont I try loggin in NOW?" ... and it WORKED again...

I am so confused and dissapointed with this product... I want to go back to 1.01 also, but am not able to find it... I also emailed D-Link tech support and never got a reply (They suck!!!)

Good Luck with your new one !!!!!! Oh, what make/model did you go with this time??
