Unable to access old HTTPS login for WiFi router

Part of the reason some of the older sites do not work is due to insecurities in older SSL protocol’s. Some of the older versions are disabled in newer browsers thereby keeping someone from accessing the device.

Unsupported protocol

Work Around

Internet Explorer will let you change the security settings to allow older security protocols to work. Chrome and Firefox seem to have issues letting you do that.

Open Internet Explorer and then go to the Internet Options and find the Advanced tab. Scroll down and locate the “Use SSL3.0” option and enable it.

Enable SSL 3.0

You may also need to modify the Zones.

Change Internet Zones

You should now be able to accept the Security Certificate and log in.

Proceed to login page for site

This should only be done if absolutely needed and only on sites you trust. It would be a good idea to change the settings back when finished.

How to set a Static IP Address in Ubuntu and Debian

The first thing we need to do, is open our interfaces file.  Execute the following from a terminal.

sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces


sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

Then add or copy and paste the following.

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

Close the file. Now we need to change the DNS settings

sudo vi /etc/resolv.conf


sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf

Edit the nameserver line to something like the following.


Close the file and then restart the networking stuff.

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
