Setup hasn't changed too much for now. We still start with the ASUS screen above.
Moving through setup, you will be greeted with a message for enabling 802.11ax HE frame support.
Once we are in, you will notice the interface is similar to past 802.11ac units. We have navigation on the left side pane with a dashboard interface in the center. For testing, this router was on firmware 126.96.36.199.384_5247
Moving down the list, we have AiProtection from Trend Micro along with parental controls.
Adaptive QoS is still a staple in the ASUS interface; this includes bandwidth monitoring and Web History.
Traffic analyzer gives higher insight into past and current traffic for each device.
Like many ASUS solutions, we still have USB application support with AiDIsk and media server's, printer and time machine along with 3G/4G WAN.
AiCloud takes ASUS storage platform to another level allowing you to access connected USB drives anywhere in the world.
Moving to advanced settings, we have Wi-Fi options with a drop down for changing bands. Across the top, we have higher level settings for WPS, WDS and Mac Filters.
The professional menu item allows you to configure high-level options.
Moving to LAN, we have the typical options across the top with LAN IP, DHCP server settings but the last menu option allows you to turn on Jumbo frame along with link aggregation.
We then move into WAN where you can enable Dual WAN for redundancy along with typical passthrough and DMZ options above.
Next up, we have the built-in firewall with the basic configuration at the top and more in-depth options in tabs above.
Last, we have Administration allowing you to select the operation mode. Along the top, we have system, firmware and restore options as well.
