R6350 - AC1750 Smart WiFi Router - https and block services

I have found two security issues with this router.

 

1)

The first question is:

Can I log in to my NETGEAR home router with https not http?
for example: https://192.168.0.1 or  https://www.routerlogin.net or https://www.routerlogin.com into my web browser’s address bar.
 
 
2) 
The second qustion is:
I set up a block service in Advanced/Security/Block Services/
-Always
-Service type "Testing"
-Starting Port: 62077
-Ending Port:62079
filter Services for: All Ip Addresss
I have accepted this on a router.
It doesn't work because this port for example 62078 it still available for any network devices. I thought that a router should be blocking these ports.
Do you know what's going on?

   Firmware version?

   If it doesn't work, then probably not.  Why do you care?  Presumably,
you're talking to your own gizmo on your own LAN.  If someone can
overlisten to that local traffic, then you're already in big trouble.

   ...incomprehensible to me. Is there some actual problem which you
are trying to solve?  As usual, showing actual actions (commands) with
their actual results (error messages, LED indicators, ...) can be more
helpful than vague descriptions or interpretations.

> Do you know what's going on?

 

   Not even a clue.

This Router Firmware Version is

V1.1.0.64_1.0.1

1) I would like to use https not http extension, it is used for secure communication over network. Is it possible to do it or not because for example, some cheaper routers have this feature. You can turn on https or turn off. It depends on the situation.

 

2) Is there some actual problem which you are trying to solve? 

Yes, there is a problem because I would like to use the basic feature of router. I want to add a rule where I will close a specific port. If it doesn't work I think that I will check that my router is still under warranty.

   Some Netgear routers might offer it, too, depending on the model and
firmware version.  Apparently, yours does not.

   I understand that.

   Still my position.

   That's not an actual problem.  _Why_ would you like to add this rule?

 

> [...] I will close a specific port. [...]

 

   What, exactly, does that mean to you?  What makes you think that any
particular port is "open" (and what, exactly, does that mean to you)?

 

> [...] Is there some actual problem which you are trying to solve?
> [...]

 

   Still a mystery.

 

> [...] If it doesn't work [...]

 

   If _what_ "doesn't work"?

It doesn't work:
"This article will guide you on how to set up a NETGEAR router to block services using the genie web user interface. You can block services on your network based on the type of service. You can set block services to always or base it on a schedule."

Does anyone have any ideas with these issues?
It should be created a patch for a firmware.
