    When I open any https:// site i get the above message, it only comes when I connect using my wifi. If I use Internet using hotspot from mobile there is no such issue. My router name, say 'X' shows X 4 and on clicking on more info below the above message in Firefox it says "Certificate is only valid for the following names: mediarouter.home, mediarouter1.home, mediarouter2.home, mediarouter3.home". I think mine is mediarouter4.home but I don't know how to change that. I have tried SSL clearing and dnsflush. Time and date of the system is also updated and fine. Same happens for CHROME as well in that it says "Your connection is not private". Again no issues with mobile hotspot. Please help! (Windows 7)

    Usually it means you are not logged in completely to your Wi-Fi, we have a Guest network at my work and when you connect it brings up a web page that you have to agree to the terms of service before it win let you surf normally. If you don't hit the agree button it and you try to surf it will say "you don't have a secure connection". What router do you have?
