RT-AC3200 router certificate expired, will not renew


Anyone have any idea why this won’t fly?

Using ASUS rt-ac3200 owned DDNS myname.asuscomm.com

Server Certificate status is ‘OK’ and the expiration date is 11/30/2018. Why won’t my certificate go to ‘Active’ Status with an expiration date in the future?

My domain is: deare.asuscomm.com


There might be an issue that ASUS failed to automatically renew the certificate.

Have you tried to renew it manually? (By repeating the instructions?)

Thank you

I did try to do it manually by disabling DDNS and then recreating it with my original options. The information for the certificate was exactly the same - Status of ‘OK’ instead of ‘Active’, and the expiration date was 11/30/2018.


Since I’m not familiar with this setup (and actually I can’t find documentation about this). The best suggestion I could make is to contact Asus support and they might have an explanation / answer for you.

Thank you

Does the router have the correct date and time?

Router does have the correct date and time.

Thank you, I’ll contact ASUS support too.

Hi @ddeare

your port 80 doesn't answer ( https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=deare.asuscomm.com ):

Domainname Http-Status redirect Sec. G
http://deare.asuscomm.com/ -14 10.037 T
Timeout - The operation has timed out
https://deare.asuscomm.com/ 401 6.803 N
Certificate error: RemoteCertificateChainErrors
http://deare.asuscomm.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/check-your-website-dot-server-daten-dot-de -14 10.026 T
Timeout - The operation has timed out

The last check should send a http status 404, not a timeout.

Open the router, so that a url like


is available.

Then try it again.
