HTTP/1.0 401 Authorization Required?

Posted on


When I try to login into our Thomson SpeedTouch router using IE8, I get the following error :

HTTP/1.0 401 Authorization Required

The prompt act like I have typed a wrong password, it work fine using Firefox and Telnet.

Im not the only one, I can see someone else on yahoo answers

IE8 does not support HTTP 1.0 ? or its a bug ? or what ?


You need to disable digest authentication on your router. Telnet into the router and enter:

[ system config digestauth=disabled ]
