Routers

A router is a device that forwards data packets between computer networks, creating an overlay internetwork. A router is connected to two or more data lines from different networks. When a data packet comes in one of the lines, the router reads the address information in the packet to determine its ultimate destination. Then, using information in its routing table or routing policy, it directs the packet to the next network on its journey. Routers perform the "traffic directing" functions on the Internet. A data packet is typically forwarded from one router to another through the networks that constitute the internetwork until it gets to its destination node.

DLNA

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) has the goal that devices from different manufacturers can share media over a network. For example, movies are stored on a Digital Media Server (for example, a NAS). A Digital Media Player (for example, a DLNA-enabled TV or Blu-ray Player) has the ability to find and play the movies from the NAS.

Quality of Service (QoS)

The quality of service (QoS) refers to several related aspects of telephony and computer networks that allow the transport of traffic with special requirements. In particular, much technology has been developed to allow computer networks to become as useful as telephone networks for audio conversations, as well as supporting new applications with even stricter service demands.

802.11a

IEEE 802.11a-1999 or 802.11a, is an amendment to the IEEE 802.11 specification that added a higher throughput of up to 54 Mbit/s by using the 5 GHz band.

802.11b

802.11b has a maximum raw data rate of 11 Mbit/s and uses the same media access method defined in the original standard. 802.11b products appeared on the market in early 2000, since 802.11b is a direct extension of the modulation technique defined in the original standard. The dramatic increase in throughput of 802.11b (compared to the original standard) along with simultaneous substantial price reductions led to the rapid acceptance of 802.11b as the definitive wireless LAN technology.

802.11g

This works in the 2.4 GHz band (like 802.11b) but operates at a maximum raw data rate of 54 Mbit/s, or about 19 Mbit/s net throughput. 802.11g hardware is fully backwards compatible with 802.11b hardware.

WPA-PSK

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a certification program administered by the Wi-Fi Alliance to indicate compliance with the security protocol created by the Wi-Fi Alliance to secure wireless computer networks. This protocol was created in response to several serious weaknesses researchers had found in the previous system, Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP). PSK means that it is only for Pre-Shared-Key mode

WPA2-PSK
i

WPA2-PSK

The advanced protocol, certified through Wi-Fi Alliance's WPA2 program, implements the mandatory elements of 802.11i. In particular, it introduces a new AES-based algorithm, CCMP, that is considered fully secure. From March 13, 2006, WPA2 certification is mandatory for all new devices wishing to be certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance as "Wi-Fi CERTIFIED." PSK means that it is only for Pre-Shared-Key mode.

WEP

Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a security algorithm for IEEE 802.11 wireless networks. Introduced as part of the original 802.11 standard ratified in September 1999, its intention was to provide data confidentiality comparable to that of a traditional wired network.

WPA-EAP

WPA contains the architecture of WEP, but provides additional protection through dynamic keys based on the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) and offers pre-shared key (PSK) or Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) authentication via IEEE 802.1X.
EAP - Extensible Authentication Protocol RFC 3748 (Request for Comments) is a general authentication protocol developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) that supports various authentication methods (such as user name/password (RADIUS), electronic certification, SIM (Subscriber Identity Module), etc.). EAP is often used for access control in WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) networks.

Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) is the implementation of a security standard for wireless networks according to the WLAN standards IEEE 802.11a, b, g and n and is based on the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). It is the successor of WPA, which is based on Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP), which is now considered unsafe. WPA2 implements the basic features of the new IEEE 802.11i security standard.

USB 2.0 type A

Universal Serial Bus (USB) is a serial bus standard to interface devices. USB was designed to allow many peripherals to be connected using a single standardized interface socket and to improve the plug-and-play capabilities by allowing devices to be connected and disconnected without rebooting the computer (hot swapping). Other convenient features include providing power to low-consumption devices without the need for an external power supply and allowing many devices to be used without requiring manufacturer specific, individual device drivers to be installed.
The Mini-B, Micro-A, Micro-B , and Micro-AB connectors are used for smaller devices such as PDAs, mobile phones or digital cameras. The Standard-A plug is approximately 4 by 12 mm, the Standard-B approximately 7 by 8 mm, and the Micro-A and Micro-B plugs approximately 2 by 7 mm.

Edition 16/2015 - Das neue Modell des Herstellers arbeitet gleich mit zwei schnellen CPUs, die für mehr Geschwindigkeit sorgen. Das klappt im Test dann auch sehr gut, wobei die Konkurrenten auf den vorderen Rängen dennoch flotter agieren. Dennoch bietet das Gerät hohe Datenraten und das auch dann wenn mehrere Geräte gleichzeitig auf den ac-Router zugreifen.

User thomaswinter

Was muss beachtet werden, wenn hinter dem RT-AC87U ein VoIP / SIP - Telefon installiert wird (ausser Aktivierung von SIP Passthrough in der WAN Konfiguration)?

This question was asked about another variant: RT-AC87U

User thomaswinter
Accepted answer

In der Konfiguration des WAN muss ein "Port Forwarding" aktiviert werden. Dazu muss der vom VoIP-Telefon verwendete Portbereich der lokalen IP Adresse des VoIP-Telefons zugeordnet werden. Bei einemVoIP- Gigaset zum Beispiel, kann beides (IP-Adresse und VoIP Portbereich) in der Konfiguration des Telefons festgelegt / ausgelesen werden.

Ich habe extra auf die inzwischen dritte AC-Generation von Asus gewartet und wurde bitter enttäuscht und habe das Gerät zurückgegeben, danke für den reibungslosen Ablauf an Digitec.

Das Produkt, oder besser gesagte die Firmware(s), ist voll von Bugs ohne Ende.
Ich habe alle verfügbaren FW-Versionen ausprobiert, inkl. der Merlin und Asus Beta-Varianten.
Mehr dazu auf www.smallnetbuilder.com

- simples Portforwarding einzelner Ports funktioniert nach einem Neustart für max. 5min
- Reichweite im 5Ghz weit unter meines alten N66U
- andauernder Verlust des 5GHz-Netzes, egal mit welchen Settings und diversen AC-Clients.
- ein Neustart dauert gefühlte 5min weil das Broadcomm-System warten muss bis das Quantenna Subsystem für 5Ghz resp. AC geladen wird
- adaptives QoS funktioniert schlicht nicht
usw usf....

Die Hardware hat bestimmt viel Potential aber es wird garantiert noch eine Weile dauern bis die mit neueren FIrmwares auch nur im Ansatz stabil läuft, auch wenn man nur einen Bruchteil von den beworbenen Funktionen nutzt.

d.h. zurück zu N66U - sorry ASUS, try harder :)

Es gibt ein bekanntes Problem mit dem Router, dass er das 5GHz Signal regelmässig verliert. Siehe dazu: forums.smallnetbuilder.com/...

Bei einem Gerät dieser Preisklasse unakzeptabel. Ansonsten wäre der Router ein absolutes Tier betr Reichweite, Funktionalität und Leistung. Schade.

Ärgerlich ist vor allem, dass sich digitec weigert, das Gerät trotz bekannter Mängel zurückzunehmen und hat damit einen langjährigen, sehr guten Kunden verloren. Brack.ch ist diesbezüglich deutlich kulanter.

Mit der neuesten Firmware endlich ein Top-Gerät

Vergesst die schlechten Bewertungen aus früheren Zeiten. Die seit mitte März 2015 erhältliche Firmware ist so, wie schon die erste Version hätte sein sollen. Habe keinerlei Probleme mit dem Gerät. Allerdings mache ich auch keine komplizierten Dinge damit, und mein Haushalt ist früchtefrei.

Abbrüche, Performanceeinbrüche? Nie gehabt in den drei Wochen mit der neuesten F/W. Und ich gebe wirklich richtig Last drauf, mit Laptop und diversen Androiden.

Achtung: Firmware unbedingt selber vom Asus-Server laden, denn nicht immer wird die neueste Version auch zeitnah auf dem Server bereitgestellt, auf welchem das Gerät selbst checkt, ob eine neuere Version vorhanden ist.
