Tyler's Router Test System Specifications

Setup for the ARRIS is similar to the 1750 we tested, although this solution does have the option of using an app for your smartphone.

Once I landed inside, the router wanted to upgrade its firmware and after 10 minutes or so it was done.

This is the landing menu - above we have tabs across the top with all the controls for the router.

The basic menu has options for USB connectivity include DLNA and SAMBA.

In the advanced menu, you have full access to all the services running on the router.

We also have access to the RipCurrent menu, and as you can see below, I have two extenders connected to the router.

The configuration menu would not be complete without wireless options, so ARRIS gives you two separate tabs. As you can see, you can control the mode, band, and channel along with the output power.

Above, we have the traffic management feature of the router, which is similar to QoS.
