The DIR 510L Doesn't Like Complex Passwords
« on: May 15, 2015, 12:04:29 PM »

My 510L came today. Ive spent 30mins trying to get it to connect to my home network to test it out.

with my present password: 32!F6ZV!vRg19ACD (it doesnt work)
with a standard password: hello123 (it works fine)

Anyone else had this problem?

Link>Welcome!

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

What happens if you try not as many characters? 32!F6ZV!vRg1

Hi FurryNutz
Hardware Version: A1
Firmware Version: 1.05
Yes '32!F6ZV!vRg1' works, '32!F6ZV!vRg19ACD'  doesn't work

Is the device restricted to a certain amount of characters?

ok Thanks Furry!
Maybe you can put a request in to the big dogs, to enable more characters in the next firmware update  8)

Usually 13 characters is about enough for D-Links home class routers and is sufficient for security policies.
