Tried updating the firmware ? Sounds like a bug thats putting the defaults back in place.
Is it losing any other settings ? (ie: port forwarding etc)

As long as the router isn't playing up and resetting due to power surges or similar, you need to save the settings.

Step 1 is change the username/password on the WAN Settings page and click on the apply.

Step 2 is click on the Tools tab at the top of the web page and select the System option on the left.

Step 3 is clicking on the Save & Reboot option and OK the Save & Restart.

The modem will restart and store the altered settings in the router.
