How does one go about setting https as the protocol for logging in to your wireless router? The login box says I'm using an unsecure method, http, to log in but does not tell you how to make it https. Thanks.

Depends on the router. Most have an option in the configuration to use https. Most users have no need for this though.

It is just your browser being over sensitive, it is assuming you are about to send a password over the Internet via an insecure protocol. As the password is not actually going over the Internet you don't need to worry about it.

Usually when configuring remote administration you have the choice or default of https. This is not the same when you access via the lan.

Kind of depends on the IP address you are using to access it.

If you enabled the wan side access you may be using that IP. If you don't need remote access disable that feature. There you should consider https.
Normally one would access it via the private IP such as 192.168.x.x or even a name like http://simplenet.local
