  1. Ok so last week I got some trouble with my router (d-link)
    I reset it to the defaults then went to 192.168.1.1

    Got in and put in my username pw and the rest!
    Got my internet back and everything was fine!

    Next day I wake up and try to access internet. wouldn't load.
    Checked my settings, they'd been reset again.
    This has happened in a loop every day.

    The settings I input only last a day or reset whenever I turn my router off at night.
    I've tried inputting the settings in Firefox, as safari doesn't log me in.
    I tried Opera too!!

    No they must be in the router (ie it's not dial-up)

    Did you select :"Save settings to router, and restart router" (wording may be different, but about right)

    The Router will then Save all your modifications and restart (Actually I think it's "Save All" syntax)

    Umm well it's dlinks site.
    The only thing I can see is apply.
    I'll try applying and then resetting the router.
