General Setup Options

Finally we’ve got to the most interesting item of the root menu: General Setup. It contains all the remaining setup options. And this is the only root menu item of the setup manager whose submenus are also designed as icons (although only on one level). The first submenu of the General Setup group is System. Like in Tools, there are maintenance-related settings here that are usually combined with such options as firmware update, etc.

System Group

The System page is for setting up the router’s system time, changing the password for accessing the setup manager, or specifying the address and port for setting the router up remotely via the Internet. The system time option allows to specify your time zone and NTP server. You cannot enter the time value manually.

WAN Group

The WAN submenu is where you set up the router’s WAN port. Each connection type is specified on an individual page. That’s quite handy: you can set up each connection type just once and then switch between them whenever you want – the router will store all the settings.
