Asus is one of the foremost providers in networking hardware to the users. They provide the best quality routers and accessories to the users. Their routers are reliable and provide some of the best user experience. They consist some of the most advanced features such as Network Map, Guest Network, Device Prioritization, the number of devices that are connected to the network, to check the status of the internet and the wireless connection, the Adaptive QoS bandwidth monitor, AiProtection and much more. The user can access these features by logging in to the router. The Asus routers need to be logged in before the user can configure their network. The user can login simply by typing www.router.asus.com in the address bar of any internet browser and entering the default information regarding the router. The username and password are “admin” for most of the Asus routers. The username and password are case sensitive.
What is www.router.asus.com?
The web domain www.router.asus.com is the web domain name through which the users can login to their router. After entering the domain name, the user will be prompted to enter the default information of the router. After successfully logging in to the router, the user can configure, control, monitor and even repair the network themselves. The router recognizes the web domain and translates it to the default IP address for the router and reroutes the user directly to the login page of the router. The users had to enter the default IP address specific to the router before but it was quite troublesome for the users to remember or find the default IP address of their routers. Asus came up with a solution by providing routers preconfigured to use the web domain name instead of the default IP address of the routers.
Only after logging in to the router, the user can gain access to the advanced features of the router. The user can also configure their network and gain access to the details as well. The user can also update the firmware of the router through the web based interface. The firmware needs to be updated regularly in order for the router to stay updated and so that the security on the router can stay updated as well. All the sensitive information of the user passes through the router such as the private information of the user, their banking information when they buy something online, the emails and the passwords and much more. To keep the security up to date, the firmware needs to be updated. The firmware needs to be updated for the router to be able to stay compatible with the latest media technology. This way, the user doesn’t have to go around buying a new router every time they wish to buy a new media device. Other than that, the firmware update might also fix any bugs or previously faced issues as well. The new firmware might also bring some new features and overall speed boosts too.
