    Ive looked over asus tips on how to secure router and here are some questions. (https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1039292/)

    1. Enable https to log in ASUSWRT

    Ive seen people advertise to not change http to https in Advanced Settings-> Administration-> System-> Local Access Config . Should i change it or leave it on http?

    2. Only allow specified IP address to log in ASUSWRT

    Advanced Settings-> Administration-> System-> Specified IP Address

    Should i change it only for my main pc?

    I know hiding ssid and mac filtering wont protect but they at least hide it from neighbors.

    Do you trust clients in your network?
    If yes no need for it, otherwise it would be better but might bring in troubles.
    Access from outside should be blocked!
