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.

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.

Superb performance, Great design (low footprint), excellent wi-fi coverage. Nice touches like the inclusion of USB 3.0 and the ability to switch the lights off at night. I have been managing 120Gb download speeds with my Nexus 7 (on 5Ghz wi-fi). 2.4Ghz connections are all much improved as well.
Expensive, Installation wasn't quite as straight-forward as led to believe. This router uses 192.168.1.1 as the default gateway and the router it replaced was a D-Link 655 which uses 192.168.0.1. This required me manually changing the ip addresses of devices like my network printer, NAS boxes and Sonos system. I am using my router with on a Virgin 120Gb with the 'super hub' in modem mode only.

Great speed to my .11ac pci express card in desktop - getting 1.3Gb on 5Ghz channel.

The range on 2.4 is great - iPad now shows full signal strength on second floor of house. Router is located on ground floor.
Required firnware update to fix 2.4Ghz channel performance. Devices were connecting at 11Mb before - 150Mb after.

It is quite expensive, but you expect that for a somewhat enthusiast level device.

Obviously requires matching network capability on device end top reach the maximum throughout - but this is standard for all things, so I guess I can't hold this against it.
