Even though most routers assign the same IP based on MAC addresses I like to assign them for file sharing, printers especially, and remote access pinholes in the router, etc. Just a habit since I service many businesses. Like I said, most of the different settings don't come in to play for home use, but for commercial use the Asus are great so one doesn't have to pay for a commercial router.
I don't worry about mobile IP assignment either. No need for it.
Interesting, luckily it only affects configurations that have a USB drive plugged into the router's USB ports.
The June 22 report found the "ability to traverse to any external storage plugged in through the USB ports on the back of the router,"
Readers are advised to lock down their routers by installing any available firmware updates, changing any default passwords, and ensuring that remote administration, Cloud, and FTP options are set to off if they're not needed.
Thx. Something to keep in mind if using the USB ports on the router for Media sharing or NAS or something.

Well, I wouldn't be connecting such externals anyway nor enabling the AiCloud service (don't need it). As I've stated before, my first order of business is to change the router's default IP address. Hopefully, I'll get it installed and set up today.
