Setup follows the same process as the 1900ac and 2600ac. That said we won't go into too much detail but we do begin by setting usernames and passwords for the admin account.
We follow up by setting the SSID and password.
Continuing setup, you can choose here to use the MR2200ac as a router or node for mesh.
The dashboard offers access to desktop items such as file station for USB 3.0 storage, package center and control panel. Further, we have Wi-Fi connection for setting up mesh nodes and Network tools that offer traffic and device stats.
Control panel offers the ability to set up users for storage along with file services and notifications.
Moving into the Network Center, SRM offers WAN information along with traffic stats below. To the left are the controls for port forward, traffic control and security.
A unique feature of SRM as it has evolved is the ability to handle dual ISP connections with the ethernet WAN port and USB 3.0 with a 4G dongle allowing for failover if the router detects the primary broadband connection has gone down.
As mentioned, Wi-Fi Connect allows you to connect multiple MR2200ac units to the RT2600ac to create a mesh network.
Last, we can take a look at the wireless option in the network center. As with previous SRM platforms, we have access to SSID, passwords and channel options.
