In spite of assigning IP's based on their MAC in the allocation table, when you have to reboot, which seems to be necessary a few times a day, you do not get your assigned IP back until you do an IPconfig /release and renew, or change the properties of your NIC in your TCP/IP network settings to assign the IP there. (A previous user notes they get the Asus screen after they reboot the router, and this is why.) When it reboots, you have to wait a long time for it to talk to the DNS servers. For example, if you start to ping Google, you get 10.0.0.1 for a few minutes, and then eventually you will see it finds the proper IP for Google and the ping starts to work. Do not use this router for VOIP as you need good Qos for VOIP and this one only has Qos for upload. I could tell yesterday when talking to a friend, he never had issues hearing me, but he would fade in and out and become distorted. If you watch your P2P download speed while you initiate VOIP you can see P2P unchanged.
I see a lot of reviewers rate their knowledge as 'High', and then make statements that show their experience is nowhere near that level. For example the N/A review that complains that he loses all his settings when he resets, he must not have realized he can back up and restore his configuration settings.
I upgraded my firmware to latest Beta 2021 because they make some mention that they improved Qos interface, yet it appears to be exactly the same to me.
In the last post Asus says something about perhaps another firmware upgrade, I think that is necessary.
Oh, and the problems with the web interface, the problem is the fact that it was written by a non-english speaker, and that is why it is so hard to understand. Asus should hire a third party to rewrite their documentation and it would work wonders for their sales figures.
