401 Authorization Required ERROR!!

[ Edited ]
Hi everyone, here is my problem.  I cant change ANY setting for my linksys befsr41 v1 router.   i can log in witht he password (admin), but when i try and change a setting (ie filters) a password prompt pops up , then after entering my password 3 time i get the "401 Authorization Required" error. 
    so far i have reset to factory defaults, changed my firmware, and tried changing the password, nothing has worked.  i know its not a password issue.  i have spent hours on this and got no where SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

I have same problem with my wireless B BEFW 11S4 V4. I am able to access the set up page but cannot make any changes. After three password entries I get the red screen 401 authorization. Have you found a fix for this. I am about to replace my router

while the router is ON...press the reset button on the back of it for a whole minute.... while still pressing down, remove the power cable then release the reset button... clear your browser cache again then restart your computer... turn the router back ON again then access the router setup page once more..... you should leave username blank then use admin as your password.... remember your DSL/Cable configuration to get your Internet connection back ok? :smileywink:

ok so inow know that it is some kind of program i had running or something like taht so what i do now is just boot in safe mode (with networking) and make any changes i want and it works fine, also with my other computer i can just disable my anti virus and it works, so try one of those and you should be able to. good luck :smileyhappy:

All, I was able to solve this issue by deactivating my Norton Firewall.  For some reason it is effecting saving changes and not recognizing the correct password.
