AXT1800 Root Password Always Resets

I travel a lot, and that involves staying at a different hotel every week for a few days. Every Sunday night, when I pull out the router and plug it in, I must set up the root password again. It appears as if the root password is not surviving a power cycle.

Is this by design?

what firmware version are you use?

It should not set up password again when router restart.

I have the latest firmware - 4.2.3.

Every week when I plug the router back in - the password is reset.

Suggest that you try reloading the firmware via uboot. Had similar problems before and this fixed.

Hi atoreson:

I have checked the issue.It is OK.

You can follow @limbot advice,Update the firmware from uboot.
