Router Software & Admin Interface

Once you have connected the router towards your LAN and WAN, make sure to restart your cable/fiber/dsl modem. Access your browser and you will get access to the installation wizard. If that does not happen, point your browser towards (default router IP with login admin/admin if needed.


Our settings are immediately detected, the router addresses an IP over DHCP to us and we are good to go. The internet connection works as the router found a firmware update. We will want to update immediately, always update ASAP in these times of security breaches and vulnerabilities. Once you logged into the logon screen (username and passwords for SSID WIFI and router can be found on the sticker at the backside of the router). Below you can see the main menu with options and an overview of the router functionality. That, I have to say, looks really good. I do want to mention that ASUS has some nice specific extras like the addition of WTFast. With WTFast you use a private game network with private servers worldwide, these are all directly connected to each other, so communication between the servers is very direct. The idea is to lower ping when gaming overseas and it supports all the popular games like League of Legends, Diablo 3, World of Tanks, CSGO, World of Warcraft and Dota 2. You get one month free access to WTFast, then you pay a monthly fee ranging from $ 9.99 per month to $ 99.90 per year. The service promises better ping / less packet loss. Personally, I would never use it as... well I am located in the Netherlands and our Internet is fast worldwide. But for some countries, stuff like this can matter, however at an expensive price premium, sure.
