Setup begins as it has in all past ASUS solutions.
Moving through setup; we stop to setup SSID and password. Here you can also choose to separate the 2.4 and 5GHZ bands.
We then reach the 802.11ax HE frame support note, enable it if you have AX clients.
As you can see the AX92U shares its firmware platform with the AX88U we reviewed a few months back and for the most part all of the 802.11ac lineup. On the dashboard, we get a quick glance at connected devices at the bottom along with status for Wi-Fi.
Moving down the side panel we stop at Ai Protection. This allows you to run a security assessment on your network and fix any issues. It also includes site blocking, IPS, and Infected Device Prevention along with Parental controls.
Moving into Adaptive QoS, we have a full device list along with traffic. From here you can categorize device based on priority.
Traffic Analyzer offers a device list along with the top 5 apps for each device and the bandwidth used.
USB Application is a hub for all things that connect through USB, whether that be storage or 4G/5G dongles, printers, etc.
AiCloud gives access via the cloud to your connected USB storage solutions.
Getting back into the settings menu; we have Wi-Fi settings which include each band using the drop-down menu, SSID and password along with additional controls.
Sliding down to Switch Control, the AX92U can enable Link Agg on ports 1 and 2 here.
As with most ASUS solutions, the 92U supports WAN failover utilizing a USB dongle.
Last, once you setup the second node, you should see it on your dashboard screen asking you to connect to it.
