Management GUI




The login menu for the 818DRU gives us our first glimpse at what appears to be a very elegant looking interface.




Upon the first connection, it will ask that you use the integrated wizard to setup the router.




After a few steps, we are setup and ready to go.




The landing menu for the 818DRU is very basic but, at the same time, gives you everything you need in one glance; this should bode well with novice users that just want to see what's going on quickly.




Above, we have the wireless network settings menu. One thing to take note of here is the wireless bandwidth is selectable for both bands. This is not always a feature that is offered on every router. We also have the security setup in this menu where you can select the type of security you use in your network.




Switching over to the advanced menu, things open up a bit, giving more finite control over the router's settings.




Here we have the USB menu, which is where you can setup a Samba server in addition to the FTP server that's made available.
