Routers offer various operating modes to fulfill several needs. Some of the operation modes are access point mode, range extender mode, wireless router mode, and media bridge mode. Setting up 2 Asus routers as AiMesh in Access point mode comes with a lot of benefits like extended coverage, unification of management, one network name, efficient roaming, consistency in security settings, NAT disabled, and IP sharing.

Some of the things required in the process are log in details and a second spare router, which will act as a mesh node. You can establish either a wired or wireless connection between the router and computer and kick-start the process.

Step 1: Connect your PC to the router using Wi-Fi or an Ethernet connection after launching the Asus Device Discovery utility.

After you've connected your computer to the router, click the Search button to identify your wireless router's IP address, and then click IP address.

Step 2: Enter your router's username and password on the login page, then click [Sign In].
