how do

  computerdiv 09:44 21 Apr 2008

i have been forced to use my talk talk modem as my belkin 1 is up the duff. i have tried to enter my IP address in IE7. This brings up a dialog box asking for my username and pass word. I enter them but nothing happens. it does state (Warning: This server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a secure connection)).what does this mean?. Can any one help, thanks

You just press Enter for OK as IE will akways bring that box up. If you do not want to see it again tick the little box before you press Enter, If you do not do the above it will stop you going anywhere

First of all a better title would have been better, the title "how do" does not help anyone, especially someone who may suffer the same problem as you and searches this forum for a answer/solution.

The dialog message sounds to me that it is saying that, your username and password are been sent out over a unsecure connection. I find this strange because sensitive information like usernames and passwords are usually only sent over a secure connection.

Is there not an option where you can choose to send the username and password out via a secure network or (SPA) SECURE PASSWORD AUTHENTICICATION?

It does the above when it's connected Wireless to a Modem. As is modem may not be encrypted

Is your TalkTalk piece of kit a modem or a modem/router and how are you connected to it?

The IP address that is entered into the browser (IE7 or the others) is normally that used to access the configuration page of the modem/router. It is not your IP address but the IP address of the modem/router.

Is your Talktalk modem installed correctly?

It does help others if you find a solution to post how you solved it.
