I have a Netgear WNDR4500 that I use for my home router. I also have my own domain with a subdomain point to my IP. I happened to browse to it today and noticed the management console was listening unencrypted on port 80. I checked the settings on the router, and the management console is off.

Can someone point me in the right direction to disable this behaviour?

The only thing that seemed to work was forwarding port 80 to an IP address that is known to be unused.

Thanks

Could you actually access the management interface from the WAN side? –  Paul Dec 10 '12 at 3:21
    
If you were trying from inside your LAN, it's supposed to work. Turning off the management console usually only disables access from the WAN side. –  David Schwartz Dec 10 '12 at 3:43
    
Apologies, I meant to state that it was available from the WAN side. –  Chris Cartwright Dec 10 '12 at 15:05

On Netgear's documentation, page 105 there are instructions for setting up remote management of the Netgear WNDR4500. Hope this helps.
