This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security

Pros: nice interface. lotta features.

Cons: just had gigabit fiber internet installed. The netgear the ISP supplied reaches gigabit download and upload. Asus only get 400 down and 400 up. Disappointing.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your time on posting this review, we are sorry to hear your experience with the ASUS router. I know that youa are disappointed with the router's performance. Please allow me to assist you.

Can we have a detailed information about the issue? have you tried configuring the router? Please place your router in an open and strategic area since this device uses radio waves to communicate. You may try changing the Channel bandwidth to boost the frequency of 2.4 GHz to 20 MHz and control channel of 1, 6 or 11. For the Channel bandwidth to boost the frequency of 5GHz for the bandwidth, please select 60MHz, and the control channel 161.

For further assistance or if you want to discuss this matter with me, please email me at customerloyalty@asus.com and put case #N160217645 in the subject line for a reference. I'm here to help you and all others with these issues, as our customer loyalty department dedicated to bringing a resolution to all issues related to our products.

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security

Pros: Speed, reliability, speed, more speed...

Cons: A few grammatical issues in the GUI

Other Thoughts: Set it and forget it! I've had zero issues in the year that I've owned this router. I had a VPN running from the US to South Korea for a while too and I had no issues there either. If you're looking for a reliable router this is the one.

5 out of 5 eggsUp there with the fastest device available! Love it!

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security

Pros: Fast throughput for Gigabit Intranet and capable of highest throughput rates supporting my download speed of close to 200Mbps - that's the max my provider can give me at 15ms response time. Dual processor device with separate 2.4 and 5 GHz networks, separate Guest network with really good reach within my home. Signal carries from one corner of concrete basement to 2nd floor opposite corner of the house without noticeable degradation. Nice configuration interface that is quite intuitive and responsive. Activated full (free) Trend Micro network security. Custom QoS settings to priorities certain computers in the network and also give gaming traffic preference over other traffic. QoS settings graphically available down the app on a specific computer (no way to verify the impact though). Would buy it again.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: 2nd generation product, therefore not premium priced anymore, but still competitive features! Solid rating on router comparison website.

Setting up the router was incredibly simple, firmware updates are easy to implement. The range is impressive, and even in an apartment setting the signal is strong. The setup and configuration page allows for easy access to advanced options.

5 out of 5 eggsGood product so far and easy to setup.

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security

Pros: Setup was fairly painless and should be easy to follow for those not familiar or perhaps comfortable with trying to configure a router.
Unpack the product
Screw on the three antennas
Plug the ethernet cable from your modem to the router
connect the router to your PC you're using to setup
Plug in the power cable on the router and press the power button - wait about 30 seconds then restart your computer
insert the DVD/CD provided with setup instructions and drivers and follow the steps.
It took me about 10 minutes from unpacking to getting it hooked up and online.

Range on it is much improved over my old Linksys WRT54G. I ran Tomato on the WRT54G, I boosted the CPU and range on it, but it wasn't enough to give ample coverage in my townhouse (1600 sqft) for wireless. The furthest point from this router, upstairs and I keep a solid signal whereas I couldn't always get a wireless signal from the Linksys.

If you have this router in a visible place and the LEDs on it bother you, you can turn them off with the LED on/off button on the back.

Cons: There are still connectivity issues with the Blu-Ray/Video streaming player upstairs on the wireless, but I'm lead to believe that this is an issue with the wireless nic on the device and not so much the wireless router.

Other Thoughts: I've heard issues about DOA devices and ones that die after a few months - I've only had it running for about a week now and there have been no issues.

I've had people suggest to install merlin firmware on it, since it gives more options that aren't available on the ASUS firmware, but I haven't bothered to do anything special yet. This actually seem pretty straightforward with the ASUS firmware and easy to find.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks great at first, but not built to last

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security

Pros: Great user interface, easy to configure, many options

Cons: Started failing after around 1 year of use. Internet speeds will drop drastically (e.g. a factor of 100x slower). I know the problem is not my cable modem or my ISP because the problems affect speeds INSIDE the network as well, and because the problems go away if I bypass the router.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your time on posting this review, we are sorry to hear your experience with the ASUS router. Please allow me to assist you.

May I know the steps that you have taken to try to fix the router's issue? Can we also have the unit's serial number in case we need to process an RMA. Have you tried re-configuring the routers settings like changing the channel bandwidth or update the router's firmware? how the led indicator of the router are all lights are lit?

For further assistance or if you want to discuss this matter with me, please email me at customerloyalty@asus.com and put case #N160147703 in the subject line for a reference.
