first new router I got in about 6 years, so got some catching up to do, is this the new normal?
the ip address it gives itself is 192.168.50.1, ok thats new, may I ask why the 50 instead 1.1 or 1.254? I presume it doesn't really matter and I don't care but curious minds want to know, thinking that all the really smart and knowledgable folks at ASUS do this for some important reason?
when putting in .50.1 address it translates it to http://router.asus.com/Main_Login.asp
-- have never seen a local translation like this the address has always just stayed the ip octets
-- the router has some local/onboard dns doing a translation?
-- this is a router with all the inherent router distinct security issues and its not https ??
-- the router page is .asp which I thought ran under IIS, there is some local tiny web server than can run .ASP local on any windows box?
I have seen mini on-board web servers say for printers, etc but thought to run ASP would require something a bit larger, too large for being practical embedded on board small devices
I hope the attached image is viewing larger than the preview thumbnail
thanks in advance for replies
