401 Authorization Error when accessing a Web-based Utility
Getting the 401 Authorization Required error page means that you tried to access a Setup page and entered an invalid password three (3) times.
To reset the password, the device must be reset to factory default settings.
Resetting the device:
Hold in the Reset button (usually located on the front or back panel) for 30 seconds.
Unplug the power cord to the device and wait for 1 minute.
Plug the power cord back into the device.
This will restore the device's default settings, which includes a default password of admin.
You can now try to access the Setup page again.
Accessing the Setup Page:
Open a Web Browser (either Internet Explorer or Netscape).
Type the IP Address of the device into the Address Bar and press [Enter].
1. The User Name and Password Prompt will appear.
2. Leave the User Name Field blank.
3. Type in the Router?s Password, admin, (the default Password).
4. Click OK or press the [Enter] key.
If the device was reset to factory settings, the password of admin should be valid and the Setup page should load. If not, repeat steps to reset the device
