Getting a Privacy Error When Trying to Connect to Router

Using a Mac Air I can not get to the router for the life of me. The WiFi connections work but when trying to connect either to myfiosgateway.com or https://192.168.1.1/ I get a privacy error in every browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox) and can't figure out how to get around it

The router uses a self-signed certificate for https.  This causes most web browsers to raise a security warning.  Simply use the advanced or details option in the browser to accept the certificate.
