Default dlink router WBR-1310 forgets password

Just upgraded the firmware, and a new wrinkle added, the login password
gets lost somewhere. The default user and password don't work. Once I
reset to defaults with the button in back, I can login. Replace all
settings including password, everything's fine for a while, then, can't
login. This has happened twice now. Any ideas?

Not really a solution, but I have the same problem. After about a day
of uptime, it won't let me log into the configuration utility. I
believe it does recognize my password, though, because it redraws the
whole screen when I use the right one, and just blanks out the username
and password if I use the wrong one. (You probably have to have a slow
computer like mine to see the difference.) I've contacted dlink
support about this, but after about six emails, all they could
recommend was reinstalling the firmware. It didn't help.

The original firmware didn't have this problem, but I can't find it
anywhere.

I'd rather stick with the newer firmware anyway. Coincidentally, the
only time my router ever locked up was the morning the new firmware
became available that fixed the lockup problem.

If I really need to log into the router, I only need to cycle the
power. (Unplug it for about ten seconds.) Then I can log in normally
again. The router only takes a few seconds to boot up. Of course,
that erases the logs, so if you were logging in to check them, you're
outta luck.

Default Re: dlink router WBR-1310 forgets password

Yeah, you're right. I contacted Dlink, and they said I needed to take to
a live tech. Not really worth the time or aggravation. Just wish they
had told me they were working on a fix.

Actually, mine does seem to restart more now, and it keeps telling me
about these "twinge" attacks, which I've never seen in any of my other
routers.

Does it show these "twinge" attacks in the log? I assume you're seeing
this in the log before your router refuses to let you log in. Or is
there some other way to view or save the log?

Yeah, that's the weird thing. Occasionally, I can get in the router. And
yes, the twinges are in the log.

Default Re: dlink router WBR-1310 forgets password

I just checked mine, and it had two twinge attacks. It's been running
all day, and both twinge attacks were in the past hour. What a
coincidence. BTW, I rebooteded it today, I guess that's why I can
still log into it.

Default Re: dlink router WBR-1310 forgets password

The D-link rep I talked to acted like nobody else had reported the
problems with logging into the router after about a day of uptime. I
wonder if we can narrow down what we have in common that makes ours act
this way. I've changed the default IP address of the router, because
that address is already taken on my network. I've also changed the
admin username and password, but I've seen another post from someone
who experimented with that, and it didn't make any difference. I have
external ping responses disabled. I have gaming mode disabled.

Default Re: dlink router WBR-1310 forgets password

I'm not near the router right now, and of course I can't log in 'cause
it's acting up, but I forwarded this message to myself and Monday I'll
check settings. I do know I changed the IP to 192.168.1.1, and I have
internet access enabled. All I can remember about non-defaults.

I have the exact same problem. I can reset the password (and lose all my settings) but resetting the router, and get into it no problem. And I just did this about a week ago. Now, I cannot get into my router. And I know FOR SURE what my password is. This is the second time it's happened. But really it happens all the time, I just give up with it over and over again.
