Fresh install? SSID used before?

I would worry about bad password attempts from an external IP. Is your Web Access open to WAN?

The access from external IP
Don't enable remote access to the router via SSH (the cause of the warning message). If you really need remote SSH access change it to use a non-standard, non-obvious port.

Besides the warning message, is there anything else harmful to the system if I still open remote access via SSH?

Opening any port allows for the possibility of your router or LAN being compromised if a security vulnerability is discovered. This has happened before with Asus routers which had their web interface exposed to the internet.

The fact that you're seeing the warning message means the access attempt failed. But usually when the hackers exploit a security vulnerability there aren't any messages in the log so you're completely unaware it's happened.
