These manufacturers use the same key on each of their models? That seems ridiculous to me...

Subject: [Full-disclosure] Default SSL Keys in Multiple Routers
Many routers that provide an HTTPS administrative interface use default or hard-coded SSL keys that can be recovered by
extracting the file system from the device's firmware.
The LittleBlackBox project contains a database of over 2,000 (and growing) private SSL keys that are correlated with
their respective public certificates, and hardware/firmware versions. While most of these certificates are from DD-WRT
firmware, there are also private keys from other vendors including Cisco, Linksys, D-Link and Netgear.
Private keys can be recovered by supplying LittleBlackBox with the corresponding public key. If the public key is not
readily available, LittleBlackBox can retrieve the public certificate from a pcap file, live traffic capture, or by
directly querying the target host.
LittleBlackBox can be downloaded from http://littleblackbox.googlecode.com.
