Improvements to the D7000v2 and possibly others



The D7000v2 has the ability to use 2 Wan connections. DSL and PPPOE. I use one as the main one and the other as backup. If my main connection goes down it is a pain to switch to the other because I have to do 2 things.


1. On the Internet setup screen I have to reenter my username/password for the ISP. Not only is reentering the login details a pain but doing this causes the Wifi to drop and reconnect. So wastes time.

2. From the WAN setup I must switch the connection. Causes router to reboot. Again wastes time.


Is it possible to update the firmware so that both usernames and passwords are remembered and I simply have to switch the connection type? If it isn't possible to avoid the reboot that's fine but atleast I don't have to reenter my login details.


Thanks in advance.

Wrong place for that request for several reasons.


The D7000v2 is a DSL modem/router. This place is for plain routers.


You might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers specific to your device, in the appropriate section. That's probably here:

DSL Modems & Routers

When it comes to feature requests, there's another place for that:
