Configuration errors on reboot/config

Hello everybody,

i bought an WNR3500L about 2 Month ago.
In the need of an good configurable FTP-Server i installed the file (dd-wrt.v24-13309_NEWD-2_K2.6_std_usb_ftp.bin) from the official DDWRT site. In this Image there is a ProFTPD includet, i put the proftpd.conf on a USB HDD. For the first weeks it seemed to work perfectly, but then after every boot the Router lost its config completely and will not come up again.
Once i set up one litte thing in the config i got completely crazy things out of this router. The Languge on the Webmenu changed from german(my language) to english, but in the menu it shows "chinese". Also the WPS-LED goes on.

So every time when that happens i have to do a hard reset. 

Do you think its an software malfunction or an hardware issue?

Thank you in advance

Sounds like you have done

Sounds like you have done configuration changes right after a router boot. At this stage the router itself writes config vars to the flash.

Try to do a 30/30/30 reset after that wait at least 5min before you login to the webinterface to reconfigure your router.

30/30/30 means: press the little reset button 30s, then switch off power for 30s while still pressing reset button, then power on and wait another 30s with pressed reset button.
