The TEW-828DRU uses similar firmware as found on the 818 we reviewed last year. Upon first setup, the router deploys a wizard to guide you through setup.
The main menu offers a glimpse at the overall status of the router. As you can see above, we have Internet, Wireless and USB tabs, along with a connected devices area that shows what PCs are connected to the router.
Within the wireless settings you will find a drop down box allowing you to select which network you want to configure. Here you have access to SSIDs, channel width and security settings.
QoS is a big selling point for every router, as it enables the router to prioritize traffic enabling a smoother experience. By default, this feature is disabled but does allow you to set your internet throughput manually along with five levels of QoS.
The 828DRU is the first we have seen to label the port range forwarding as "gaming".
Above, we have the settings for the USB storage. Within this menu, you can enable the SMB server, create users for it along with additional options such as FTP and DLNA.
