Changing to ASUS DSL - AC68U

Go to solution

Hi There,

 

I am changing from the BT Smart Hub to the ASUS DSL-AC68U as I'm often facing my connection dropping or crashing. 

I have the PPPoE password which I believe is

bthomehub@btbroadband.com

bt

 

To get the best out of the router and to make it work what settings do I need to change to make it as fast as possible?

 

Thanks

Basically none, it depends on what your home network needs are.

Yes, no need for a PM. I don't answer them anyway as everthing should be shared with the community.

Good choice of modem/router. I've been using one for maybe 3 years now & basically with the state of the current firmware all the basic settings should be just fine.

As @pippincp mentions any changes you make really are dependant on your own personal needs. I've setup firewall rules, port forwarding, usage restrictions, a guest network and a VPN server amongst other things. There isn't much that you'd want to do that this device won't accommodate.

If you need any advice I'm happy to receive a PM which I would respond to.Smiley Happy
