Hello. When I enabled the HTTPS server in the tools, admin, administration section I found that the SSL certificate which appears baked in the firmware has the following three issues:

The certificated expired on 9/4/2008
The certificate was issued to only be valid for www.dlink.com (rather than, for example, 192.168.0.1)
The certificate was issued by DLink themselves which is not a known and trusted certificate authority.

Since having/implementing the feature of SSL implies that DLink wants to provide a secure environment, I look forward to a future firmware where that SSL security is implemented with a current and valid SSL certificate for the appropriate server by a known certificate authority.

Yes, I know that the IP address 192.168.0.1 isn't the appropriate thing to put in the cert. I suggest a FQDN which the DNS server in the router would map to itself.
