ASUS RT-AC68P AC-1900 Wireless Router Review

ASUS Router Configuration GUI Continued

Some of the Pro Settings for the WiFi allows you to set time limits, thresholds, intervals, and other technical features that you should probably not be messing with unless you absolutely know what you are doing. The best configures are set for the best performance out of the box.

Now let’s take a look at some of the WAN settings that area available. As you can see at the top we have several tabs to choose from such as the Internet Connection, Dual WAN (which we already covered), Port Triggers, Port Forwarding, DMZ, DDNS, and NAT Passthrough.

Here are a couple of screenshots showing the Dual WAN setup and options. I won’t go over the use cases again, but you can see its highly configurable.

What wireless router is complete without DDNS configurations? 🙂 This allows for you to have an easy to remember hostname that will always resolve to your Home Internet IP. This is useful for remoting into your network while away from home. ASUS provides a DDNS service for free without having to signup which is a nice benefit.

There are also VPN Server and Client options as well. Perhaps you would like to VPN into your home network? This is where you would configure this to be done.

Below is a screenshot of the VPN client options available on this ASUS 802.11AC wireless router.

Like on most modern routers, there is a built-in firewall to provide some basic protection from the outside world. I went ahead and configured DoS protection on and I’m also going to log dropped packets to keep an eye on things.

From the Operational Mode screen you can change your router from a wireless router to repeater to access point or even a media device.

Below are some of the system settings that can be configured.
