I am running ie 11. I did not see anything to install a cert. it just says close the browser and more info. the more info says it will not accept the connection.

Have you tried the option (that should be there) to proceed anyway?  I get a message on my Cisco RVxx router that I need to OK each time.

that's what I'm doing now. it hangs at 25%. I'm no longer as calm as I need to be for this. I found the reinstall disk.

How do you know it hangs at 25%?  Are  you performing the reset via a web access page or something?  You should try performing the factory reset via the paperclip pin hole on the device.

If you hadn't already been trying the factory reset I would have said to try Firefox or chrome.  I have had this issue recently where IE would not access the router but Firefox worked fine after telling it to ignore the security warning.

the install window shows progress to 25%. i'm doing a re-install of the software which is not working. I'll try the factory reset and reconfigure it. The network seems to still be up but I can't get to the interface. tonight i'll have more time to see if i can fix it. I uninstalled the software so i hope i didn't screw it up too much.

the reset button worked. I was able to reconfigure it after that.
