    ASUSWRT

    THE POWERFUL USER-FRIENDLY INTERFACE

It’s also where you can configure AiCloud 2.0 and all advanced options.

    ASUSWRT features are model-dependent. Please refer to the detailed product specifications.

    AiProtection

    Your advanced security gateway

    AiProtection, incorporating state-of-the-art, three-pronged security from Trend Micro™, gives you enterprise-level security in the home. It constantly monitors the health and safety of the home network for your peace of mind.

    Router security scan

    Checks 14 critical security configurations, discovers risks affecting your router and recommends ways of improving protection.

    Without AiProtection

    Many simple problems can compromise security, such as a weak router password, unencrypted Wi-Fi or unblocked remote access.
