Strange.  This was working great for two days and now the iPod started dropping connection again.

If you changed anything in network security/settings You`d have to reset network connections on your iPod.

BTW. I`m using WAP2 AES security settings on my IPhone, no dropouts so far.

Try this:
 Go to Advanced> Advanced Network> UNCheck enable UPnP.

Iphone asked for password in 5 minutes after as I checked it.

Did a shutdown and reboot on iPod and it fixed the problem.  I can't disable UPnP.  Too many things on my network rely on it.

I've adjusted the router settings AND reset my iPhone network connections but I'm still having intermittent drops where the iPhone asks me for my wireless password again. There's no pattern. I haven't disabled uPnP I guess that's my last resort.

I meant to say there's no pattern I can determine at this time.  So frustrating.

Just to be clear. This bug is not DIR-825 specific. It`s Apple 3.1.2 upgrade.  Previous version was more stable. This problem is all over apple boards as well. Linksys, netgear, all required a bit of playing with settings to make it work.

Apple funny boys don`t believe apple is at fault... as usual. ;)

Hi I have a dir 301 & also had drop out issues with my i phone 3gs until i read your solution....

I had the usual re-enter issues & would occasionally connect.

It would connect ok with no security or WEP which i lived with for a short while, However never felt comfortable knocking security back to WEP after bieng WPA enabled before purchase of i phone.

I ve gone for WPA TKIP & used your no's in advanced settings & has now been running for over a week now with no probs....

Bearing in mind that it was any WPA setting made my iphone diconnect etc...

Feel much better having WPA back again......

Thanks you re a genius !!!

Regards

Ed

;)  I found solution for Iphone 3.1.2 connection dropping out / password reentry problem.

So far my phone didn`t lost connection to DIR-825 Rev. B1 for 24 hours. I`m streaming Pandora with no dropouts / password re entry. Prior to that it was disconnecting every 10-15 minutes.

This solution should also work for another D-Link routers as well.

Here we go..

Go to Advanced > Advanced Wireless and change beacon period for 2.4 Band to 75.
Change RTS Threshold to 2304, Change Fragmentation Threshold to 2304.
save settings. Done.

Report back to this tread.
It works! I've run with it all day, lots of data. Never used to run more than a few minutes before. No problems at all.
How on earth did you figure this out? Could you see log files on either end to get a clue on the problem? Were you able to sniff the wireless connection somehow?
What do these setting even do? Does it degrade performance in any way?

In any case, great that you solved this. It was a major pain. Sad that Dlink never even commented on it and that Apple has let it languish so long.

how he figured out the numbers? just take a look at other routers.. they have these values as default ^^ for example linksys..

I don`t know with how many routers you compared. Some older routers (Linksys included) has 75ms as beacon intervals, threshold numbers are completely different.  I also have WRT610N and WRT160N and they have different numbers as well.

Understanding what those numbers means is the key.

BTW. My solution is not universal. Some iPhones/Ipods still disconnecting/asking for passwords.

Do you have better solution. I`m sure we all appreciate your input.

I have been testing this solution for about a week now. It's working great. I got disconnected only once but then it quickly recovered.

Thanks for the solution!!!
