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 ]
