When I login with Internet Explorer it doesn't happen and I can administrate the router. When examining send TCP packets the problem seems to be that firefox sends the pasword in a separate package. IE does send it directly in the first package. The router immediatly crashes when it sees no password in the first package I think. (stupid unwanted security!) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to your sitecom admin pagefor example: http://192.168.123.254/ 2.Fill in your password and click login Actual Results: Router crashes and needs a reset. Expected Results: Getting loged in the router I included TCP packages sent by IE and by Mozilla Firefox.
This is not the first report of problems caused by this behavior in FF. Though there is nothing we can do to prevent chunking in TCP, we can encourage the TCP stack to put everything in a single packet by adding some buffering to FF. I think this may actually be a duplicate bug report.
