      Product information
      Ideal for streaming high definition video, the Asus RT-AC68U Wireless Cable & Fibre Router offers high transfer speeds, allowing you to form a perfectly connected home.

      Speedy WiFi

      Powered by a dual-core processor, the RT-AC68U allows you to stream HD video, take part in online gaming and download files in a flash. It provides Gigabit wireless transfer speeds of up to 1900 Mbps and includes dual band technology for reliable wireless.

      The 2.4 GHz band can deliver up to 600 Mbps, whilst the 5 GHz band can deliver 1300 Mbps. This means that you can take advantage of the 2.4 GHz band for simple internet tasks such as web browsing and file downloading, whilst the 5 GHz band is ideal for streaming in Full HD or online gaming. Broadcom TurboQAM technology helps to improve the router's performance, so you know you can rely on this device.

      Signal range

      You won't struggle to connect to your network thanks to Asus AiRadar technology. Whilst other wireless routers may have weaker signal, the RT-AC68U uses beamforming technology, high power amplification, and RF fine-tuning. Not only does this help to boost coverage throughout your home, but it also helps to keep your connection stable and speedy.

      Fantastic connectivity

      The RT-AC68U Wireless Router includes USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 connections which make it perfect for transferring files, attaching USB devices or setting up a shared printer. There are also five Gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting your wired devices, whether it's your Smart TV or your PC.

      You'll be able to connect to your data wherever you go thanks to Asus AiCloud technology, which links to your home network. Access your home content from your iOS or Android smartphone, or through a web browser.

      Download Master allows you to download files even when your PC is turned off, which means you'll always have access to everything you want.

      Getting connected is easier than ever when you use the Asus RT-AC68U Wireless Cable & Fibre Router.

      Very easy to setup
      Have had no issues with quantity connecting - 20+ devices
      Good graphic based app
      Connected to a BT openeach modem very easily (just had to add the password "BT" where the homehub that I was using did not display a password).
      The app does not let you control the Guest logins as much as the normal ones

      Good Points:

      QoS
      fail over
      very reliable
      excellent wifi speeds
      Bad Points:

      Load balancing didn't work as expected but all others features make up for it and the average user won't need this feature.
