The Asus Router app is convenient for people who want a set-it-and-forget-it network, but also has enough options to make it useful.

You'll probably get annoyed by all the people who ask you what this device is -- but you won't question its top speeds, great Wi-Fi coverage and bonus security powered by Trend Micro.

The USB network storage speed was disappointing, but managing your file-sharing options from the menu is very convenient. It even supports Apple's Time Machine backup.

The Asus Blue Cave even supports Amazon Alexa and IFTTT (If This Then That) for automated and voice control of your network.
