And if you’re brave enough, you can install third party firmware to unlock even more advanced features. – jbatubara I’d also like to add 1) guest wifi to keep guest devices segregated from your network and 2) Asus has a baked in dynamic dns feature which makes accessing home network remotely a lot easier if you don’t have a static ip. – wherewallaceatstring Commerce Content is independent of Editorial and Advertising, and if you buy something through our posts, we may get a small share of the sale.
