For Asus router setup to work efficiently, you must set the time sync settings on the system because if the time is out of sync with the networking device, then you may come across the Data lost problem. Your valuable data may get deleted. Hence, it is mandatory to set correct timing on the NTP server and sync with the computer for the complete network.
To get details about the network time protocol and Asus router sync, keep reading the content of this page. After reading this post, you will be able to understand the functions and responsibilities of Time clock and network timing on the PC.
Steps to update the Network time on Asus router are given here in this link.
Before discussing the relationship between the NTP server and network time on the computer, we would like to put some light on the ‘NTP and its usage’.
Role of NTP in the syncing system clock
NTP is a protocol meant for time synchronization on the network. This purpose of this protocol is to sync the time of routers and servers from an external source.
Mostly, it is the responsibility of the algorithm of NTP to update system clocks. It enables all other devices which are connected to the computer as well for maintaining the same timing on the network.
So, in a single time source, NTP sync the devices to a common network. The networks within PC interact with each other because of system clocks being properly synchronized. Therefore the master time should be accurate in order to have all the devices synced with each other. For this, NTP uses UTC which offers standard time zone irrespective of the zone with which the router is connected. Whenever you connect the device to the network using the Asus router, it will search for a nearby location to update the system time.
In case, your Asus router is connected but going out of sync with the NTP server, then you can follow the below-mentioned steps to sync the same.
Steps for synchronizing the Time server of Asus router with the NTP
You can try the below mentioned steps to sync the Asus router with NTP server. You can update the system time quickly with these steps.
- Open a browser on your computer and enter the IP address for the Asus router. Which is 192.168.1.1 by default. If you have changed it recently, then check the new one by accessing your email registered with it.
- Go to ‘Advanced settings’ and click on ‘Admin’ from System menu’. Scroll down to search for ‘Basic config’ menu on the login page. Ensure the time zone field which must be set according to the device.
- Open ‘NTP server’ box and key in the IP address or domain name of time server from the location. Don’t forget to save the settings you made so far on the server. Click ‘Apply’. Restart your router to apply the changes for the next time.
