comment Why does Safari seem to be accepting an HTTPS connection every other browser rejects?
@Iszi This isn't so much about the router as it is about the way Safari handles SSL certificates that other browsers seem to think are invalid in some fashion. I didn't feel a IT security forum was the proper place to deal with issues with a bug in router firmware, but accepting invalid SSL certificates certainly is.

Wireshark reports that Firefox is sending a TLSv1 "Bad Certificate" Alert after the initial certificate is sent, and then terminates the connection. For Safari I see a similar "Bad Certificate" Alert, followed by a series of "Change Cipher Spec" messages culminating in a successful connection.

@dr jimbob All the browsers except Safari display an error page claiming the connection was reset during communication. I suspect something in the SSL negotiation is failing.

@tftd Near as I can tell there's nothing like that in the config. It warns me that the certificate is self signed and can't be verified like all the other browsers, and after I add an exception it works.
