    I recently updated my firmware for my router and after the installation was done, I wanted to login, but the login-window stated that it now used "basic autentification". But you could bypass that by just terminating the window.
    How could I fix this bug?

    If you terminate the window you don't have to login? What router access does that give you--full access or just "read only"?

    The router user manual doesn't say anything about this?

    Have you tried a login and then assign your own password? That may then turn off the ability to bypass a login.
