Title: Cannot gain access to the admin section of DSL-2680
Post by: Garawa on November 09, 2014, 02:53:54 AM
It has been getting harder and harder to access the admin area of the router.  On my old PC it stopped working with Chrome and IE wan unusable on my system as it caused 100% processor lock out for some reason.  Luckily I could use IE on my wife's laptop but now this doesn't work either.  At least 20 attempts failed before it finally let me try but it rejected my username and password.  Tried a cache clearance, refreshed the page and no joy again.  I have a brand new Windows 8.1 PC now and no access is granted for either Chrome or IE on that!

Often these things resolve themselves after a few days and I have just tries again and got the following message:
Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data. Error code: ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE

No amount of browser cache clears or anything seems to bring it up.  I have not seen any significant problems, everything connects as it should and 2 new Android phones and my PC have connected to it OK.  I have seen some devices say they have lost connection and then been unable to reconnect unless I click the connect button.  Others have dropped a connection whilst still stating they are connected but disconnecting and reconnecting again solves the problem.  There is obviously a setting wrong somewhere if I could only get into the admin area to look!

Has a factory reset been performed?
Do both wired and wireless connections exhibit the same problem?
