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: 1. Hold in the Reset button (usually located on the front or back panel) for 30 seconds. 2. Unplug the power cord to the device and wait for 1 minute. 3. Plug the power cord back into the device. 4. This will restore the device's default settings, which includes a default password of admin. 5. 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.

I have done a hard reset for my router, I tried the suport page but it did not help... I want to know the default username & password.


To access the web-based utility, launch the web browser on your computer, and enter the Gateway's default IP address, 192.168.1.1, in the Address field. Then, press Enter.
A login screen appears. Use the default user name and password, admin, unless you have changed them during the Setup Wizard. (You can set a new user name and password from the Administration tab's Management screen.) Click OK to continue.


You may refer to WAG200 User Guide if required. (Page-5&7)

How to access to the router's web-based page. I did typed in the word "admin" in the password box. Won't pop up to show the page, just said "401 Authorization Required" for some stupid reason


The default login and password is admin
If you still have difficulties because you had changed the password, the you can reset the router back to the defaults by :-
Pressing the pinhole reset button with power on for 30 secs, it should restart, then enter the router's URL configuration in your Browser

I can't access my linksys router set-up page. I keep getting this message: "401 unauthorized" authorization required


" 401 unauthorized" authorization required " .This message means the user name and password for the router is not correct. the default password of the Linksys router is admin with no user name ( leave it blank )
If the default password is not working then the router password must be changed.
If you don't know the password of the router then you will need to reset and reconfigure the router.
Once you reset the router , it will come back to the factory default settings.

There are seven main tabs: Setup, Wireless, Security, Access Restrictions, Applications & Gaming, Administration,
and Status. Additional tabs will be available after you click one of the main tabs.

401 Authorization Required is the message you get after the default allowed password attempts have failed. When trying to access the Speedstream, you didn't type in the correct password which results in that failure message.
