Router keeep reseting to default when power cut

Hi,

 

I have the D7800 and latest firmware. Everytime I got power cut or reboot the router, my router reset to default setting. I have to manually restore from backup configuration. I connect my router to Chorus Fiber Optic box. Can you find out what the cause of this problem. Really annoying, because no one know how to set the configuration except me. If you  can, let the router read the usb for configuration by itself. Since its happen for long time. Thank you.

Does this mean that you have the D7800 configured in "bridge" (router only) mode? (This is explained in Set Up the Modem Router for Cable or Fiber Service in the manual.) That removes the modem section from the network.

What firmware version do you have on the D7800 device?

A number is more useful than "the latest". (It may not be by the time people read this.) There can also be newer versions, or "hot fixes", that do not show up if you check for new firmware in the browser interface.

Just another user.

   "bridge" is a term which is widely misused/abused, but I don't recall
ever seeing it used to mean "router" until now.  "modem only", yes.
"wireless access point", yes.  "router only", no.  A modem+router which
is used as a router only is called a "router", not a "bridge".  Because
it's a router, not a bridge.

 

   A modem+router which is used as a modem only _is_ called a "bridge",
precisely because it's _not_ acting as a router.

 

   What any of this might have to do with a loss of settings is not
clear to me.
