  • Dual Band
RT-AC68U supports combined dual-band data rates of up to 1900Mbps. 1300 Mbps 802.11ac at 5 GHz gives Gigabit wireless data rates, while Broadcom TurboQAM technology super-charges 2.4 GHz 802.11n performance from 450 Mbps to 600 Mbps with compatible devices.

The RT-AC68U also features dual USB ports for file, printers and 3G/4G modems sharing and a USB 3.0 port for up to ten times faster data transfers than USB 2.0. ExclusiveASUS AiCloud transforms your home networking into your personal cloud for easy streaming and sharing to smartphones, PCs, and tablets. Router-to-Router sync also makes it simple to sync files on USB-connected storage with other compatible ASUS routers for hassle-free sharing of large files with family and friends.

AiProtection, incorporating state-of-the-art, three-pronged security from Trend Micro, provides advanced parental controls, blocks malicious addresses and intrusions for your PC or device, and alerts you if an infected device is connected. Potential weaknesses such as password strength and operating system vulnerabilities are also monitored at all times. Moreover, AiProtection even protects Wi-Fi devices without an installable security program such as smart TV, game console, and smart home devices, giving you peace of mind.

Powered by 5th generation Wi-Fi (5G Wi-Fi), the 802.11ac chipset gives the RT-AC68U superfast Gigabit wireless speeds. What's more, RT-AC68U uses TurboQAM technology to upgrade 2.4G Wi-Fi even further to give you unprecedented speeds. At 2.4 GHz, it's 33% faster than generic wireless-N900 routers, reaching 600 Mbps, while on the 5 GHz band it blazes to 1300 Mbps - or triple 802.11n rates. That's 1900 Mbps of concurrent wireless power!

The ASUS RT-AC68U features a dual-core processor that eliminates the performance drops that plague other routers. So even on the busiest home networks, HD video streaming is always smooth, the latency low for online gaming and VoIP calls, and file downloads are never interrupted.

ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connectivity using beamforming technology, high power amplification, and exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning. This ensures extended coverage, dynamic data speed increases, and enhanced stability.

Delivering 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz concurrent bands at up to 600 Mbps and 1300 Mbps, respectively, the RT-AC68U has a total speed of up to 1900 Mbps, and maintains complete stability. You can perform basic tasks like Web browsing and file downloading on the 2.4 GHz band, while simultaneously allowing multiple devices to stream in Full HD or support online gaming and other bandwidth-demanding applications smoothly on the clearer 5 GHz band.

Highest Speed USB 3.0 features data transfers up ten times faster than USB 2.0. Two USB ports make the RT-AC68U perfect for file, multimedia, and 3G/4G sharing, while ASUS AiDisk offers remote access and quick content streaming. Where other routers have their USB ports sandwiched next to one another, both RT-AC68U USB ports are evenly spaced for easy access to either at all times.

Share your internet connection with your guests with no need to share your personal password or network resources. ASUS Guest Network supports up to three separate guest networks, each with its own usage limits and password. Guests cannot access your primary network or any other connected devices.

Product Reviews
Asus RT-AC68U Wireless Router is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Managed to grab one of these for cheap, threw DD-WRT on it, and it's insanely powerful now. It'll last for a while hopefully.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I just started using it and so far so good It's somewhat difficult to mount on a wall since there are no holes on the case. I had to install some L-shaped brackets on the wall but other than that it's been great so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My current home router. Absolutely awesome with tons of features, including TrendMicro, Tor, OpenVPN, etc... (Use the Merlin firmware for all of them.)
Date published: 2016-04-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I put one of these units into a SoHo office and it is working great. The speed and connectivity is spot on. The features that are available making it very flexible. Even the VPN feature is reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router This router keeps up with my 60Mb internet speed with no problems
Date published: 2014-10-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a decent product and a very stable one. Even for novices, navigating through the menus and explanations are not a chore. Good job here, drop the price a little and it will be even better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute top notch router. Out of the box and on the shelf setup takes less than an hour. The only qualm i have is that most devices in a home environment aren't currently up to date in supporting AC technology.
