      Having some strange issues with new d-link router.

      Had a netgear router on the max package for years with trouble free service for the most part. The Ethernet ports died on the netgear which is how my PC is connected to my router.

      They sent me this d link version now and it has some quirks and issues I never had with the netgear router. My first issue started when certain sites one day started failing to load in any tab on both IE9 and Chrome browsers. They seem to be stuck in a kind of loading up loop and I just get a blank white page?

      Some of these sites have now started my browsers to ask me to re-enter my ssid and network key again when I try and load them in my browser. But this will never grant me access it just reloads and ask me to enter them again in a continual loop. In fact periodically I get random pops in both IE9 and Chrome asking me to re-enter my ssid and network key again and again.

      I basically can no longer access certain sites on this router that I could when I first got the thing. I've checked on other peoples connections and the sites are fully active. I don't have any other internet enabled devices at the moment other than the sky box for sky anytime which is working fine. I have had no luck with google searches finding I fix to the problem.

      Are you using wireless or ethernet? You should not get this on ethernet. If it is wireless, it seems the wireless connection is dropping and has not been set to reconnect automatically. If you are using wireless, are you using the Windows wireless manager?
