Admin and Setup

Admin is via a browser-based interface that uses multiple frames. Figure 1 shows a sample window.

The left frame is fixed size, but the right-hand frame resizes to track your browser window size. The interface has quick navigation from screen to screen and short pauses to save settings. You can have multiple admins logged in simultaneously without the router complaining and there's no login timeout. I didn't like, though, that the left-hand menu and overly-large top banner frames would display without being logged into the router.

WAN-side remote admin and firmware update can be enabled and restricted to range of IP addresses, but I found response to be so slow as to be unusable when I tried out the feature.
