Love this router, especially the capability to name and rename connected clients at will.
But it every few minutes, it makes me sign back into the router with my admin password. it really interrupts my work, and it's driving me crazy!
See it here:  http://dlinkrouter.local/info/Login.html
Any ideas on how to solve this?
thanks!

Try enabling HTTPS server and see if that makes a difference? I know with older router GUI you could set the login timer manually. See emulator example below. I don't even see a place to manually log off so they probably shortened the timeout to compensate.

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?

Most D-Link routers have a 3-5 minute UI time out that's not configurable by users. Only way to reset the time out is to keep clicking and navigating the menus I believe. I was told a long time ago that D-Link uses this to avoid security concerns.  ::)

DIR-655 used old GUI and you could change the "inactivity timer" under =http://support.dlink.com/emulators/dir655/133NA/Admin.htmlTools > Admin and then disable page style to adjust. I think several other models too. Some routers with old GUI like DIR-615 are excluded.

That was removed in later FW versions.  ::)

Of Course they did. ::) Why go through the trouble creating the feature just to hide it, just to later spend more effort to remove it? Is Dlink THAT concerned about someone sneaking in behind a router admin to quickly change settings? Most people don't even change the router GUI password.

Could be any number of reasons. I seen some posters taking about how the version of FW shouldn't be displayed on the log in screen. I presume someone somewhere may have left there UI logged in and someone came behind them and probably did something nefarious. I presume it's a blanket kind of fix and removes D-Link from any legal issues as well.  ::) There code and product.  ;)

Then why did they have it in there to begin with, and why only recently change it? It's not like logging into routers is a new thing, and neither is trying to sneak up behind someone when they type a password. I would honestly consider buying a high end Dlink router if not all their GUI was so handicapped.  :( Instead IMO the older routers are actually better because they have better firmware even if the hardware is inferior. Thank the techno gods for 3rd party firmware.

Probably something not thought of back then. Then someone got into trouble some where. Who knows.

Ya, I still prefer the OLD UI over the new. I think D-Link when simplified due to the majority of users being home users and just wanted to install the router with less hassle and less to deal with. Seems to point in that direction at least. I do wish they could design the UI for both simple and advanced usages. I presume it could be done. Anyways, they are what they are.

"Who knows."

But you are the Dlink god. Don't you know everything?  ;) I wish Dlink had chosen to keep the old UI as an option you could "downgrade to". I assume the firmware could be designed to offer multiple GUI. Even if they just made it look that way when you remove the style so the power user can access it.  Some high end consumer routers even have CLI access, which I admit is more than the average user will ever use, but breaking it down to the simplicity they worked it down to is too much of a swing in the other direction IMO. But like you said.. it is what it is.  :-\

You people give me that title. I'm just a forum moderator. Hehe.
 ::)

Ya I know, would be nice to have more features and such for us advanced users. However I presume other things to consider. Support, testing, development. All that and other things that mounts up to cost, budgets and profit.

Now back to our normal programming.  ;)

I was thinking of a possible work around. Would it be possible to use some type of browser plugin to isolate the cookie used for the idle timer and keep it from expiring? I have a feeling it won't work because the web server built into the firmware doesn't accept renewed cookies even if they aren't expired. It might be worth a try though if OP really needs the feature.

Firefox Cookie Plugin.

That probably doesn't work on the new FF v52 and beyond since Mozilla has killed off any FF plug in support.  Unless you use the ESR build. ::)
