Installing third party SSL certificate?

Installing third party SSL certificate?

I searched far (Google) and wide (NETGEAR forum), but could not find the answer to this question for our beloved R7000.

 

Is there any way to install a proper PKI-chained SSL certificate from a third party like Comodo or StartCom SSL?  Currently, when enabling HTTPS access for remote management, my/all browsers get angry because the R7000 is using a self-signed certificate:

 

Self-Signed Cert

 

I have a free StartCom SSL cert all generated and ready to install.  The problem is, I cannot find a way to share this certificate, intermediate cert, and private key, with my router.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the quick reply, Elaine.

 

That's too bad.  Seems like competing products and NAS solutions support this feature.  Perhaps some future version of Nighthawk or beyond can consider this as an Enhancement Request?  It shouldn't be too hard to implement if you're using an off-the-shelf httpd.
