Packaging and a Closer Look
Packaging follows what we have seen in the past from ASUS, an image of the router on the front with a bit of marketing surrounding model number to the left.
In the package, we have the router, ethernet cable, and power adapter. Down below the four antennas.
The front bezel of the router offers information on power both wireless bands and internet connectivity. Further down we have activity lights for both USB 3.0 ports and WPS.
Under the nose of the router to the right, we have buttons to enable/disable the LED and Wi-Fi.
While under the left side of the nose, we have a USB 3.0 port hidden behind a door.
The backplane is stacked with ports. On the left, we have USB 3.0 and WAN followed by the antenna, eight LAN ports, and second antenna. At the far right, we have WPS, reset and power input.
