ASUS Black Dual-Band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router, Model RTAC68U

World's Fastest - For Those Who Run Ahead

The ASUS RT-AC68U is the world's fastest Wi-Fi router, with combined dual-band data rates of up to 1900 Mbps. 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. Powered by a dual-core processor, the RT-AC68U eliminates the performance drops that plague other routers with busy networks. 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. 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. The easy-to-use ASUSWRT graphical user interface unlocks the power of the RT-AC68U giving robust control to optimize your network for you. 30-second set-up and easy traffic management means even network newbies can enjoy its sophisticated features, while power users will love its IPv6 support, multiple wireless SSIDs and secure VPN access.

Key Features:

  • The world's fastest Wi-Fi router, with combined dual-band data rates of
    1900 Mbps for three times faster performance than 802.11n routers
  • Broadcom® TurboQAM™ technology increases wireless-N data rate to
    600 Mbps for 33% faster performance
  • Five Gigabit Ethernet ports for fast, stable wired network connections
  • Dual USB ports with USB 3.0 for ten times faster data transfer than USB 2.0
  • Dual-core processor for fast and responsive performance with Wi-Fi, Ethernet and USB devices
  • ASUS AiCloud cloud service to access, sync, share, and stream your data wherever you are, even connect to other compatible routers creating a private cloud server with family and friends

Features:

  • World's Fastest AC Wi-Fi with TurboQAM Wi-Fi acceleration
    Powered by 5th generation Wi-Fi (5G Wi-Fi), the new 802.11ac chipset gives the RT-AC68U superfast Gigabit wireless speeds. What's more, RT-AC68U uses TurboQAM™ technology to upgrade 802.11ac Wi-Fi even further to give you unprecedented speeds. At 2.4 GHz, it's 33% faster than standard 802.11ac 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!
  • NVIDIA GameStream Ready
    Your router is about to have a lot more fun. That’s because it can now stream all your favorite PC games to the NVIDIA® SHIELD™ portable to play anywhere in the house using fast, ultra-reliable NVIDIA GameStream™ technology. ASUS routers deliver lag-free, high-performance game streaming from GeForce® GTX™=powered PCs or NVIDIA GRID™ cloud gaming systems.
  • Do more at once with dual-core processors inside
    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. 
  • Enhanced signal range and stability
    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. 
  • Dual-Band connectivity for compatibility and performance
    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.
  • Ultimate USB speed and versatility
    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.
  • Robust control and optimization with ASUSWRT
    With the ASUSWRT dashboard UI, setup, monitor, and control network applications all in one intuitive area. The whole-new dashboard interface lets you manage all clients and settings via a single graphical interface, and provides 1-click updates. Do you game a lot, or spend most of your time streaming videos? Whatever your planned use is, the RT-AC68U has Quality of Service (QoS) standards that let you select how much bandwidth is prioritized for virtually any task. Plus, the traffic monitor allows you to check your Web usage in a clear graphical interface.
  • Easy 3-step setup
    Use your smartphone, tablet, or PC to effortlessly set up your ASUS router in less than 30 seconds* and in only 3 easy steps1. Simply connect the cables to the router, open a Web browser, and follow the setup wizard to get you to the internet in no time. 
  • ASUS AiCloud - Your world on demand
    ASUS AiCloud* keeps you connected to your data wherever and whenever you have an internet connection. It links your home network and online Web storage service2 and lets you access it through the AiCloud mobile app on your iOS or Android smartphone or through a personalized URL in a Web browser. Even better, connect your AiCloud with another compatible router and expand your cloud even further. Now all your data can go where you do. 
  • Powerful online multitasking with 300,000 data sessions
    Support for a massive data pipeline of up to 300,000 data sessions means the RT-AC68U has around 20 times the networking capacity of conventional routers for exceptionally smooth performance.
  • Download and stream anywhere
    Download Master and enhanced media server let you download and play multimedia files stored on router-attached USB storage on a wide range of compatible devices such as PC, pad, PS3, Xbox, and smart TV. Download Master can also download files while your PC is turned off, and allows you to manage and monitor download status remotely. 
  • VPN server enabled
    Easily set up a VPN server to browse the web and access data — no matter where you are. Featuring MPPE encryption, your data transmission remains always secure and confidential. 
  • Discrete and secure Wi-Fi networks via guest access
    The RT-AC68U supports up to three wireless networks over the 2.4 GHz band and three over the 5 GHz band, so you can set up usage times and limit access with advanced controls, including parental settings.

        Replaced an AirPort extreme with this router, the speeds are much better. I had a few dead zones in my house, especially on the 5G network, but this router took care of that.

        Relatively easy to set up.

          It really is a great overall router. Are there some issues? Yes, the firmware can be buggy, however, once you land on the correct one it just works.

          I have one as my main router and two setup as access points.

          The speed is great as is the overall flexibility for home use.

          If you want to segment your network out so guests aren't accessing your home network, use the guest networks.

            Comments about ASUS Black Dual-Band Wireless Gigabit Router:

            I purchased the ASUS Black Dual-Band Wireless Gigabit Router from ABT and had ABT install it up for me. My old router did not provide a strong connection within my house. This router has a strong connection and is easy to use. I liked it so much, I purchased another one for my daughter (again installed by ABT).

            Service and delivery comments:

            The installation of the router by ABT was prompt and well done. I am glad that ABT provides this type of service. I was not confident that I could set the router up properly, so I used ABT.
