Lets suppose that my Asus router has a security flaw that Asus didnt fix it yet.

You mean the software they load on the asus router.

In general most these so called IPS/IDS software are getting more and more worthless.

You read there bla bla bla deep packet inspection bla bla bla.

Problem is in today's world you can't do deep packet inspection. Mr snowden showed us that the government was already doing that and everyone quickly ran to fully encrypted traffic via HTTPS. There is no longer anything to inspect.

The only thing left is DNS inspection and IP inspections. Since almost every site is using virtual hosting it means very very little. All the IP map back to huge cloud data centers like amazon or google or akamai. You can not actually tell which sites are which any more.

DNS to a point you can but if your read the latest controversy chrome is working on using a encrypted DNS and of course the government doesn't like that.

In general nothing can get into your internal network because of the NAT. Unless you port forward any unknown incoming sessions will be dropped.

The router itself has a basic firewall that prevents some of the denial of service attacks. Since the router itself by defualt allows no management or access via the wan interface the software is not exposed.

Now if there is some strange bug I suppose but no AI software is going to detect a actual unknown bug in the software. What if the bug is in the AI itself. Highly unlikely and in general the hackers could careless about home users no money involved to hack their connections. Much easier to try to find the idiots who put their PC directly on the internet with no router.
