    AIProtection replacement ? Or how to manage it ?

    Hello, Question about AiProtection and especially the IPS part. Not being able to add an exception yourself is a real shame, and a blocker in some cases. Since I don't want to disable AiProtection or just the IPS part for my entire network, I'm wondering... How do you do on your side? We...

    Hi, I've been checking AiProtection, and noticed 2 things: -The "scan" button, after clicking on it, shows the UPnP is enabled when it's not (at least not on GUI). Is there a way in the router to validate if it's a WebGUI issue or if it's really enabled? -The "Two-Way IPS" shows one of my...
