Persistent wrong password
« on: November 04, 2016, 11:40:51 PM »

Wow this is frustrating.  Updated from firmware 1.05 to 1.07ww.  I do a factory reset, and it takes me through the set-up wizard.  I change the password.  I modify all my setting as desired, all seems fine.  However, once I exit, I cannot log back in with the password I've just created:  "Invalid password, please try again."  Factory reset, go through the entire process again, same result.  I've done this several times.  This is not a very fun way to spend a Friday night.  This is with Firefox 49.02 with all extensions and add-ons disabled.  Any suggestions?

OK, after seeing a post by square_eyes with a password problem with this firmware version, I step-by-step built a password.  I started with a simple, 8-alpha characters only password and could log-in.  I then added numbers and additional characters two at a time, logging out and in each change to ensure I could still log in.  I've now built up a suitably strong password.  Hope this helps someone else if they encounter the problem.

FWIW, I also contacted D-link support and got a reply within 12 hours; it eventually went to a 'please call this number,' which I didn't follow through on.

So, Did you find some characters that did not work?

Welcome!

What is the length of your router PW and what special characters are you using?

You can also upgrade to v1.08WW as well.
