Asus RT-AC88U Setup

As far as router setups go, this one was one of the easiest we've ever undertaken, though things went a little sideways at the end. We simply connected the router, power-cycled our modem, and while we were waiting to get back online a browser window automatically popped up and we were looking at the screen below:

1
The setup process for the RT-AC88U began all on its own once we connected everything. We like that it gives you the option to configure everything manually or use the wizard. 

2
Next we had to create the login info for the router itself. We like that Asus now informs you about the default login credentials,right on the screen. 

3
Next we established our security settings. By default the "copy settings" box is checked, so we just typed a password and it applied it to both networks. 

5
Once we had applied the security settings it logged us out and had us log back in. 

6
This was where things went sideways. We had set new credentials during the initial configuration. We completed it a second time and they seemed to stick. 

On the next page, we'll cover the software and interface in more detail.
