    hey, quick question:

    I've upgraded my GSv4 to Thibor 13a and am trying to get my SSH to work. I've got SSH turned on in the remote section of my administration page and I can connect to the port, but it doesn't accept my password.

    I definitely think I'm doing something wrong, but I'm at a loss as to what. Any ideas? :)

    Don't forget you're logging in as root, not as blank.

    If you authenticate with a public key on the router, and the private key on your client doesn't have a password, you can log in without a password.

    there isn't a user prompt, only a password. if you enable password login, the password is the same one you use to enter the web interface(admin is default). reboot your router after enabling SSH and password login

    To root or not to root?

    Well, I get slightly different behavior than you describe. Connecting with PuTTY prompts with:

    "login as:"

    I need to respond with "root" for it to work, or put "root" in PuTTY's auto-login username field.

    Same behavior with either password login, or authenticated key login. Thibor 13a with WRT54GS v1.0 CGN1, and acted like this since Thibor firmware added sshd/dropbear.

    ahh that would be correct, i use "ssh -l root" in linux. forgot about PuTTY.

    ok, to recap:
    login as root, password same as your web GUI?

    Yep, that should work.

    No luck - it accepts password and username, then terminates the connection straight away. :(
