What is www.router.asus.com?

The web domain www.router.asus.com is the web domain name that is used to login to the router. Earlier, the users had to type in the default IP address for the router, but most people didn’t know where it was or how to find it. Asus came up with a solution. They now ship their routers preconfigured to use www.router.asus.com instead of the default IP addresses. This way, the user can easily login to the router without any problems. The router recognizes the web domain name and automatically translates it to the default IP address specific to the router. The user is then taken to the login page of the router directly.
