Wishlist for DIR-850L
« on: June 28, 2013, 09:03:29 AM »

I am constantly being logged out of the configurations pages after about a minute, is there any way to extend the length of my sessions? I am trying to learn how to use this router but am logged out in the middle of reading or determining what settings I should configure. If there is not a way to extend session time, my sincere wish is that functionality for extending Admin sessions be increased to a more reasonable time. Even the junky Rosewill L600N that this replaced had the option of setting a longer session time for Admin configurations. Thanks for any insights you can give in this matter.

Link>Welcome!
  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under router.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

What browser are you using?
Try Opera or FF? If IE 8 or 9, set compatibility mode and test again.
Try turning off these features in Chrome:
Top right corner, little bars for options > Settings > Settings (on left) > Show advanced settings.
Uncheck these:
Use a web service to help resolve navigation errors
Use a prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar
Predict network actions to improve page load performance
Enable phishing and malware protection


There are some security standards that are set up by the WiFi organization that most Mfrs have to work with and abide bay, and it's possible that these standards effect how the duration of a user access is maintained on the routers web page. Yes it would be nice to be able to disable this however there could be other ramifications if someone disabled this feature and something happened while this feature was disabled.

If you want to read up about the router, you can look at the User Manual thats available and has screen shots and information.

I would contact D-Link support and ask them what official time out delay is for this model. For security reasons there is a limited time out delay, usually 3 minutes is maximum. This model is new and there could be something wrong about the FW.

New FW has been posted: http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=54610.0
Keep us posted.

Do you still have the logout time out problems ? I have the last firmware 1.07 and I have this problem. It is logging me out between 30sec to 1 minute of inactivity. This is quite unnerving. :P

ok I have to check about the browser difference. I use only 2 browsers, Google Chrome (always last version) , and Internet explorer 10, on a windows 8 pro laptop and surface pro tablet.

For the update, I updated it on the first day i had it, last week, with all the recommendations on the router web interface , like I always did in the last few years when updating routers firmwares.. :P. over a wired link of course. etc..

I recommend always following this for router FW updates:
FW Update Process

Seen it where the web interface UI or browsers used can make the FW update not go well.  :-\ :-\

Hi guys..

Does anybody know, how to get SSH or root access to DIR-850L ?

This "3 minutes auto logoff" issue could be simply solved, if we amend one file. Here the deal.

There is a function, at the header of all the pages of control panel:
Code: [Select]
var AUTH = new Authenticate(0, 180);
The function, witch logoff you after 180 seconds, located at the file: /js/postxml.js
Code: [Select]
function Authenticate(group, timeout)
{
  this.AuthorizedGroup = group;
  this.timeout = timeout;
}

Well, if we have a chance to amend that, we will solve that..

I don't think there are back door SSH to the router. You might be able to de-compile the FW, make the change then recompile it.
