I've got a TRENDnet TEW-658BRM that doesn't allow me to set the year past 2012. I'm not sure what's causing this exactly. It was working fine until I started getting some frequent wireless dropping, I decided to upgrade the firmware to the latest firmware which claimed to improve wireless stability. Please note that this firmware came out this year.

So from what I can tell the router fails to form a PPPOE connection which in turns prevents me from accessing the net. Any advice on what I can do? I'm not sure if the date is the culprit for the connection issue but I know from past experiences on this router that it wouldn't connect unless the date was correct.
