HTTP 400 Bad Request ?

I get a HTTP 400 Bad Request error when accessing the wireless access point
web based interface. This does not happen if I use Firefox and it was not
happening with IE before, either.

Anyone knows why is this happening now?

RE: HTTP 400 Bad Request ?

I have the same issue with a Netgear MR314 wireless router being used in
conjunction with IE7. Everything works OK with IE 6.

If I attempt to open the default page HTTP://<ip addr> in the browser window
it fails to open the page, BUT I can manage to fool the system (Windows XP
SP4) to open the initial page by opening HTTP://<ip addr> from the Start->Run
window. [Once I've got the initial router admin page open, I cannot navigate
to any other page.]

Ideas welcome as I can navigate to every other site OK.

Looks like it could be a User-Agent problem.
Try using the User-Agent spoofing utility. (Ref. KB923196)
Alternatively you could use Fiddler2 which has a tool to change
the User-Agent in requests. Note, however, that that would not change
the registry value from MSIE 7.0; so if there was also a problem in a site's
scripts you would still need to use the utility.


BTW (try a web search? <w>) Netgear apparently host a web forum
where this has been discussed. Test the last suggestion in this thread
and report back for us?

<quote poster="whois">
In the IE7 you have "enable native handling of XMLHTTP" under tools,
internet options, advanced, security. You must disable this.

Good luck
