You can also attach this router to a pre-existing one and use it as an access point, with EZ switch allowing you to instantly change configurations.

What can I expect from the wireless connection of this router?
Four external dual-band antennas transmit both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies throughout your home or office. AiRadar beamforming technology uses 802.11ac technology, high power amplification and exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning to give you extended coverage, enhanced stability and total combined bandwidth of up to 1167Mbps. With up to 300Mbps on 2.4GHz and 867Mbps on 5GHz. This allows you to perform basic tasks on the 2.4GHz band, while using multiple devices to stream or game on the 5GHz band.

What wired connections are there?
For activities where you want fast and reliable internet performance, for example intense gaming or UHD streaming, you can connect to one of the four Gigabit Ethernet ports. Through the USB 2.0 you can share 3G/4G internet, or access to devices such as a printer or an attached USB storage device, across your network. This makes the router act like a server, so you can have access to media or the printer without being directly connected to it.

ASUS AiDisk support allows you to access, share and stream files from your connected USB storage device to internet-connect devices. Alternatively, you can stream content from the storage device to your mobile device through the AiPlayer app, which is available for Android and Apple devices.

It is also the platform where you can robustly monitor and control your network, with settings including parental control, setting up a guest network and adding VPN access to your home network.

What does the parental control do?
The advanced parental controls help you protector your children giving you tools such are website filtering and enabling you set access times. This means you can schedule times for your children access and surf the Internet.
