Administrator Group

There are a lot of settings in the Administrator group, but all of them refer to the router’s status and operation mode.

For example, the Management page allows you to change the administrator password and specify the router’s network name. You can also set up your DDNS account and enable remote management mode here.

The name of the Upgrade Firmware page is self-explanatory.

You can save the router’s settings in a file and restore them later in case of a failure. This can be done on the Settings Management page.

The router’s date and time can be set up on the Time page.

The last page is called Status. It offers information about the current status of the router. The monitoring of connections to the router’s network ports is implemented in a peculiar way: if the connection is active, the corresponding icon changes its color.

Summing it up, the current version of the router’s firmware offers a few interesting options (multiple SSIDs, icons denoting ports, numerous Wi-Fi settings) but seems underdeveloped overall. For example, it doesn’t have such basic features of home routers as an integrated and/or remote log, QoS, Help system, Firewall, etc. There are also minor flaws in page design (some captions in the list do not match the names of the corresponding pages, and there is an odd stripe on the Access Control page). This quality of firmware is low, even making allowances for the first version.
