[Wireless Router] How to upload your own certificate(HTTPS/SSL) on ASUS router

When you try to connect to an ASUS router via HTTPS in your browser, a warning message "Your connection is not private" may appear, indicating that the security certificate of the URL is not trusted. This is because the router's default certificate is self-signed, which does not comply with the browser's default SSL security specification. Therefore, you can make your webpage connection conform to the browser SSL security specification through the router settings, and establish a secure HTTPS connection.
