Do you get any error messages?

Which SSL protocol and encryption cipher is used for that connection?

Question owner

this router uses a self issued cert for SSL i have no idea on the protocol or cipher

typing in the address as https://home.router.ip.address and hiting go takes me to a security exception page on fire fox due to the self signing after cilcking the confirm exemption that's when it breaks Firefox 9 and lower would display a user name and password entry popup window where as Firefox 10 displays the conection was reset error

I don't think this is restricted to Firefox. I've noted this behaviour with IE9, Firefox 10.0.2, Opera Mobile (on my phone) and Chrome(latest version) with my Linksys E3000 router (I access it from https://<IP>) and my 3ware RAID card management suite, 3DM2 (I access it from https://localhost:888 ).

Notably, the only thing amiss that I've been able to see in the certificates (I'm no expert) is that the one from Linksys has issue and expiry dates in 1969 and 1970 respectively. However, I don't think this is the cause since 3DM2 has proper looking issue dates and has the identical problem.

Coincidentally, I noticed this happening after a fresh reinstall of Windows 7 x64 with virtually nothing installed on it (FF, Office 2007), so I don't think it's something wrong with the other software on the machine.

I've since lost the computer that originally produced this error do to a rare check disk that corrupted my OS partition table it may be that its not just limited to fire fox since i don't run chrome and only use ie to work around this but it may have been the canary in the coal mine as far as this issue

post reinstall i continue to get a "the connection was reset page" id try and sniff the handshake with wireshark but with me barely out of it school i wont know what to look for

I must correct myself. I was NOT able to replicate this problem on Opera Mobile on my Android phone. I thought I was, but I think the 3DM2 server is set up to only accept local clients. I am able to access my Linksys router fine from Opera Mobile on Android.
