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 3.0.0.4.384_5247
