Okay, the various parts you mention all play their own role in the login 

- core ( + default and extra authentication services) : do the 
authentication and initialize the data of the logged in FE user
- felogin : login form, forgot password functionality, redirects after login
- sr_feuser_register : create new users, optionally autologin after creation

It's rather important that you use the correct version of 
sr_feuser_register which must be compatible with your TYPO3 core. Some 
versions ago saltedpasswords and rsaauth became standard and they 
influence the way passwords are stored and how the login credentials are 
sent to the server.

Recent versions of sr_feuser_register are compatible with 
saltedpasswords, but I have no idea if that extension does something 
with the login form.
Which versions of TYPO3 and sr_feuser_register do you use?
Are saltedpasswords and rsa_auth active? Are they activated for BE and 
FE users? (Check the configuration in the Extension Manager for 
saltedpasswords and follow the instructions there)
