|Last night, I lost my Internet connection. The lights were on, I just couldn't get anywhere. |
I tried to get into the router to see if I was still getting a good signal from the cable company.
401 Authorization Required
This server could not verify that you are authorized to access. Either you supplied the wrong credentials(e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required.
WTF? Did my router get "pwned"?
I reset it. Of course, I had used fixed IP addresses in my network. So, I reset the NIC for DHCP and DHCP didn't seem to be working. Do I need to use a fixed IP? What's the default network? The default gateway?
I went to bed.
This morning, all is well. According to my cable model logs, I lost the Internet connection last night.
I still can't get into my router with IE, but, Safari lets me in just fine.
