You might be wondering how to connect an ASUS router and set it up to your home network. If so, you’ve come to the right place!
You can use the ASUS Router app to control your router, check your network, and monitor its performance on the go. It’s a free app that you can download for Apple and Android devices, and it helps you configure your network in a few taps.
How to connect the ASUS Router by wire
You should be able to connect your computer and other devices to your Asus router through an Ethernet cable. To do this, plug one end of the cable into the LAN port of your router and the other end into your computer’s ethernet port. After a few minutes, you should be able to see your router’s network on the computer screen. If you can’t, then contact your Internet service provider.
How to connect the ASUS router wirelessly
If your computer doesn’t have an Ethernet port, you can also connect it to your Asus router through WiFi. To do this, simply connect your phone or tablet to the router through Wi-Fi. Once the connection is established, you can then access your network on your device using the ASUS router app.
How to log in to your ASUS router’s web interface
To login to your Asus router, you need to have the correct username and password. The default username and password for Asus routers is “admin.” These credentials are printed on the back of your Asus router.
Verify your Asus router has an internet connection
Once you’ve verified that the ASUS router has an Internet connection, you can then start to configure it from your web browser. You can access your router’s admin panel by typing in the default gateway into the address bar of your web browser, then clicking “go.”
Change your Asus router’s SSID and password
Changing the SSID of your Asus router will allow you to use a different wireless network name. This will prevent other people from seeing your SSID and connecting to it without knowing the password.
Reset your Asus router
The reset button on your Asus router can be pressed for 10 seconds to return it to its factory default settings, which will remove any custom configurations you’ve made. This should only be done as a last resort, however.
You can also reset your router by pressing and holding the hardware reset button on the back of it for five seconds until it flashes. This will clear any user names and passwords that are stored on the device.
How to turn two or more Asus routers into a mesh network
AiMesh, a popular way to create a robust Wi-Fi network, is available on many routers from Asus. It’s easy to turn a regular router into a mesh network, but there are a few important things to know.
This post is part of my series on Asus’s AiMesh, and it walks you through how to turn two or more Asus routers, or even a single router plus a few Asus AiMesh-powered nodes, into a well-performing mesh Wi-Fi system. It covers everything from setting up the AiMesh system to configuring and optimizing the network. It’s an essential resource for anyone wanting to take advantage of Asus’s mesh Wi-Fi technology.
