1. Enable https to log in ASUS router setting page(Web GUI)
Applying a self-signed certificate, you won't have to be conditioned to ignore all the warnings down the road.
You can ignore the warning because your router is a trusted device.
A bit strange, the same paragraph gives good and bad suggestion.

If you only access the router web gui from your LAN who cares if it is http or https? Really, are you going to spy on yourself?

I access the router through Wi-Fi locally. I know, not the best option over cables.
I don't track various CVE. I think fewer holes the better. Swiss cheese model - Wikipedia
