Not Prompted to Login, after first login, unless browser is closed and then reopened. RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • When I log in to my router's firmware ( using IE8 I am prompted for a username and password.

    If I bring it up again, without closing the browser, it does not ask me to log and goes directly to the basic setup page.

    If I close the browser, then bring up firmware page, it will prompt me to login.

    Is there a way to force IE8 to prompt me to login, after I have already logged in once and have not closed the browser since that pervious login?  

    Or is it the Router that knows the browser has not been closed since the last login and therefore allows me to access the firmware page without prompt me to login again?
