Hi there,
After accessing my router's status page 1000 times (at, it always returns a "404 Not Found" page and I can never access it again until I reboot it.

I've written a script that automatically grabs the status (i.e. bytes sent and received), and plots it using java script. It's really handy to figure out which of my computers is hogging bandwidth.

Any idea how to prevent the router from going into this lockdown mode?

BTW, I'd be happy to share the script if anybody's interested. It's actually quite nifty.

Hello ccrome,
We are opening a ticket with our equipment vendor to investigate this issue further. A copy of the script would be helpful so that we may reproduce the symptoms and provide a more detailed report of the problem.

I'm seeing the same thing, though it looks like mine triggered after just under 1000 hits (closer to 974)

I basically just fetch "" using curl every minute.

After a while I get "curl error:18 transfer closed with outstanding read data remaining" and then every request after that is a '404':

$ curl -v

Hello Ludwig,
This is a confirmed bug that has been submitted to our vendor. We are currently waiting on a firmware update that addresses this issue.
