How do I over-ride a secure connection failure to access the IP address for my wirelss router?
I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. Yesterday all wireless functionality dropped out. I tried going to the router's IP address and got this message:
Secure Connection Failed
An error occurred during a connection to 192.168.1.1.
You have received an invalid certificate. Please contact the server administrator or email correspondent and give them the following information:
Your certificate contains the same serial number as another certificate issued by the certificate authority. Please get a new certificate containing a unique serial number.
(Error code: sec_error_reused_issuer_and_serial)
I searched for this message in Firefox help and tried the steps listed on:
But it did not work. I could not access the IP address. I needed to do so, to reset and re-secure the wireless router. I was able to do this in IE because there is an option to ignore the warning. I would like to be able to access the router in Firefox.

Delete the certificate in servers and authorities. Enter URL about:config Change browser:ssl_override_behavior to 1 Accept the certificate again
