Remote admin allows viewing but i can't make any changes.
« on: September 18, 2015, 11:51:10 AM »

Un bleeping believable.  This problem still exists 5+ years later.

I was remotely logged into my DIR-632 and trying to enable WAN ping responses.  No dice, all greyed out (along with other WAN related settings).  Googled it and found this thread.  Sure enough after I (through VNC and "local" access to the router) changed the regular user's password to be different from the admin user's password, I was then (through real remote port 8080 access) able to see non-greyed out WAN options and to enable WAN ping.

DLink y'all should be ashamed.

Link>Welcome!

  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

PC Web Browser Configurations
What browser are you using?
Try Opera or FF? If IE 8, 9, 10 or 11, set compatibility mode and test again. (For older generation routers.)
Disable any security browser Add-ons like No Script and Ad-Block or configure them to allow All Pages when connected to the router.
Clear all browser caches.
Be sure to log into the Admin account on the router.
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

Note for future searchers/readers, my "problem still exists" was in reference to this topic http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=12602.0 where I originally posted the above (moved by moderator from DIR-615 to DIR-635 section).

I do not have the answers to FurryNutz' questions handy, I will follow up later.
