Access Policy reverts to DISABLE on reset/reboot

    Dear Experts,

    Will dd-wrt maintain the ENABLED state of access policies across a reset/reboot? The Linksys O/S will NOT and always reverts to DISABLE after a reset/reboot.

    Let me explain a little more:

    I have a Linksys WRT54G 1.1 with the Linksys O/S and the current firmware (4.30.5).

    An access policy put it in the ENABLE setting make sit take effect. However, if the router is reset (pressing the reset button) or rebooted (unplug/replug power) - say by a sharp 14 year old trying to circumvent the policy - the policy defaults to the status of DISABLE.

    This is a significant shortcoming in the Linksys O/S and, at least in my case, makes access policies useless. The state of access policies should be retained across resets/reboots.

    So, my question to the dd-wrt experts is:

    Will dd-wrt maintain the ENABLE state of an access policy across a reset or reboot?

    If so then dd-wrt will be of significant advantage to me (and possible others).

    Thank you!

    The policies defined should survive a reboot of the router assuming you have saved the policy, it doesn't make sense if it didn't do this. Are you sure the policies that you set have been saved?

    Yes - the policies were saved. The policies themselves do not disappear and are unaltered. The only thing that happens is if a policy is in the ENABLE state it reverts to the default DISABLE on reset/reboot.

    However, the stat DOES appear to be retained with dd-wrt. I will get back if I notice anything is different.
