As of late, I've been unable to access www.weather.com.  I tried again today, unsuccessfully.  Thinking that perhaps the site has been blocked for some reason, I attempted to access my Verizon router--to check the list of sites that are blocked.  I received these two concerning error messages:

 

1) This website may be impersonating "192.168.1.1" to steal your personal or financial information.  You should og back to the previous page" and

 

2) This website may be impersonating "myfiosgateway.com" to steal your personal or financial information.  You should og back to the previous page" 

 

Well. This. Stinks.

 

Ideas, Verizon hivemind?

 

TIA for your help.

It is safe to log in to the router. Verizon recently did an upgrade and now there is a internet certificate error. 

Not sure what browser you are using but there is usually an “Advanced” link you can click to proceed to 192.168.1.1 or myfiosgateway.com which is the same thing.
