A good amount is going on with this router interface, but we start with the setup wizard. For the Rapture, it's a three step installation process.
The second step lets you choose your SSIDs for all three bands along with passwords.
Diving into the dashboard, it's quite apparent this is a full-on ROG solution. Nothing was held back with the left side menu having a ton of options.
Game IPS is a feature ASUS has implemented using Trend Micro security to detect malicious content on the network - it includes parental control too.
Game Boost is part of the QoS platform for the Rapture. You can set priority based on the machine along with app analysis.
Game Profiles let you choose the game you are running allowing the router to forward all the correct ports to your PC for optimized experiences.
On to some standard features, the wireless menu gives you access to all the control for your three bands. At the top, you can enable Smart Connect to turn on band steering letting the router manage wireless connections.
USB applications have long been a staple of ASUS routers, and the Rapture is no different in that regard. We have AiDisk for storage along with media servers and printer servers. 3G and 4G USB modems are available options along with macOS Time Machine and download master.
Last but not least, we have operation modes that allow you to turn the Rapture into an AP or media bridge.
