    Error 401: DSL Router problem?
    Sometimes i can’t get access to internet.
    It says DSL router authentication and it asks for username and password. This only happens sometimes.
    Even if i do “ok” or “cancel” it doesn’t help.
    And then comes Error 401.
    I can’t open any webpages.

    Any idea what the problem is and how to solve it?
    I am with sky broadband, btw.

    problems using IE to connect to my server. I get error 401.2 when i try to access SharePoint?
    I am using vmware fusion to run windows on my mac. it works just fine for just about everything but i am now designing pages for SharePoint 2007 and i cannot access sharepoint with Internet explorer (which we all know is a must when working with sharepoint). every time i try to access the page i get a 401.2 error (unauthorized). i looked the error up but the forum does not seem to work on my system. Is there anyone who can bypass this problem for me. I know it is related to IE and IIS and Cache password authentication but i dont know enought to fix it yet.

      My feeling is that this is an IIS issue. If you are using a domain account for authentication you need to configure IIS to use Windows Intergrated Authorization.

      Here is a tutorial page on configuration of IIS

    Why does my internet keep saying “Error 401″?
    Usually my internet is fine, but every now and again every time I try to go on any website it comes up with a box telling me that the website is requesting permission for me to access it and to type in my username and password (for what I don’t know, as far as I’m aware I don’t have one with my internet provider), and if I press cancel the page comes up black with red writing saying “Error 401. Unauthorised access.”

    It doesn’t seem to matter what browser I use, and after a few attempts to go on different websites it eventually stops, but I just want to know if there’s some way to stop it happening or if it’s something I should worry about.
    This happens with websites that do not even require an account. I’m not directed to a login page, only a pop up box appears which is the same for every site.

    HTTP Error 401 unauthorized…?
    I get the following error message:

    An unexpected problem has occured (HTTP error 401 unauthorized). Performing your action again in a few moments will probably solve your problem, If it presists, we suggest you close this window and re-launch Yahoo Mail

    I’ve been getting this message for 3 days now. It pops up when deleting messages, composing, or just entering my Yahoo Mail Beta. It has been working great up to this point

      HTTP Error 401 – Unauthorized
      Your Web server thinks that the HTTP data stream sent by the client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) was correct, but access to the URL resource requires user authentication which 1) has not yet been provided or 2) which has been provided but failed authorization tests. This is commonly known as “HTTP Basic Authentication”. The actual authentication request expected from the client is defined in the HTTP protocol as the WWW-Authenticate header field.

      Generally this error message means you need to log on (enter a valid user ID and password) somewhere first. If you have just entered these and then immediately see a 401 error, it means that one or both of your user ID and password were invalid for whatever reason (entered incorrectly, user ID suspended etc.).

      401 errors in the HTTP cycle
      Any client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) goes through the following cycle:

      Obtain an IP address from the IP name of your site (your site URL without the leading ‘http://’). This lookup (conversion of IP name to IP address) is provided by domain name servers (DNSs).
      Open an IP socket connection to that IP address.
      Write an HTTP data stream through that socket.
      Receive an HTTP data stream back from your Web server in response. This data stream contains status codes whose values are determined by the HTTP protocol. Parse this data stream for status codes and other useful information.
      This error occurs in the final step above when the client receives an HTTP status code it recognises as ’401′.

      Resolving 401 errors – general
      Each Web Server manages user authentication in its own way. A security officer (e.g. a Web Master) at the site typically decides which users are allowed to access the URL. This person then uses Web server software to set up those users and their passwords. So if you need to access the URL (or you forgot your user ID or password), only the security officer at that site can help you. Refer any security issues direct to them.

      If you think that the URL Web page *should* be accessible to all and sundry on the Internet, then a 401 message indicates a deeper problem. The first thing you can do is check your URL via a Web browser. This browser should be running on a computer to which you have never previously identified yourself in any way, and you should avoid authentication (passwords etc.) that you have used previously. Ideally all this should be done over a completely different Internet connection to any you have used before (e.g. a different ISP dial-up connection). In short, you are trying to get the same behaviour a total stranger would get if they surfed the Internet to your Web page.

      If this type of browser check indicates no authority problems, then it is possible that your Web server (or surrounding systems) have been configured to disallow certain patterns of HTTP traffic. In other words, HTTP communication from a well-known Web browser is allowed, but automated communication from other systems is rejected with an 401 error code. This is unusual, but may indicate a very defensive security policy around your Web server.

      Resolving 401 errors – CheckUpDown
      When you set up your CheckUpDown account, you may optionally provide two items 2. Web Site User ID and 3. Web Site Password. You should provide these only if your site uses HTTP Basic Authentication. If you provide them, the CheckUpDown robot always uses them. This will result in a 401 error if in fact your site does not use this authentication. Conversely, if you do not provide them and your site does use this authentication, you also get a 401 error.

      If however your URL is open to all comers, then an 401 message should not appear. Because it indicates a fundamental authority problem, we can only resolve this by negotiation with the personnel responsible for security on and around your Web site. These discussions unfortunately may take some time, but can often be amicably resolved. You can assist by endorsing our service to your security personnel. Please contact us (email preferred) if you see persistent 401 errors, so that we can agree the best way to resolve them.

      Dude, the server is saying your id/password is not authorized. You are going to need Yahoo to resolve this issue.

    How Do I Fix This Error – 401 The Web Site Is Blocked By Administrator?
    Every time I try to go on the website http://www.veoh.com I get this 401 error message. This is my own personal computer and I am the administrator with no guest log-in set up. I checked my blocked sites and there is none in there. Also my sister has her own computer too (we’re hooked up through a router) and it is saying the same thing.

    Also I made sure that I dont have a proxy server up because someone told me that they can block certain websites..but Idk

    Any way to fix this? I dont know what happened it worked on Monday!

    Computer information- Windows XP, with both FireFox and IE both are giving me 401 errors.

      If your sister has the same problem, it’s pretty obvious that the block is happening in the router. Most routers allow for a block list of forbidden sites. Have you been doing so many videos that you go over your monthly bandwidth quota? Maybe somebody is trying to keep the Internet access bills under control.

      Try looking through your Magic Jack manuel and see if you can find your answer.

      You could also call/email customer support for some help.

      I don’t think Magic Jack is a real high technical device and it is easy to use. You might want to “clear out your browser and try a fresh start”.
