Cons: none

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: Fast-ish, lots of configuration options, external antennas, and supports wrt. Has some additional native features (eg netstat) that I have never seen on other routers.

Cons: Initial guided setup is forced on you (no option for manual confit until after you go through the guided configuration).

Oh, and it totally died in under a week. One night it was working, the next morning I had no wireless, and 2 reboots later I had a COMPLETELY DEAD ROUTER - no status lights, no wired/wireless connection, and no hope of a hard reset (which I tried 3 times). And all of this was after a total of ~144 hours of use (ie, 6 days).

Other Thoughts: Have the Asus support line on speed dial. Asus is known for motherboards and graphics cards - stick to those from this manufacturer and you'll be fine. In my opinion, the Wireless AC arms race between Asus and the competition is resulting in a major lack of quality control at the hardware and firmware levels. Wait a generation (or two) before making the investment.

1 out of 5 eggsIssues Now!

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: Fast and plenty of options for configurations!

Cons: Was runing for approximately 12 hours.
This morning went out to mow the lawn and when I came in, no internet and all the lights were blinking in unison. So i unplugged router for 30 seconds, plugged back in and nothing!

Does not work anymore!

I need to contact ASUS now to figure this out!

5 out of 5 eggsfantastic, router perfection!

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: Fantastic router that reaches every corner of my 2200 sq ft home. Other routers always had a hard time getting to a few of the rooms on the top floor. This one finally has the necessary range to get the job done - and with fast speeds!
Has usb 3.0 port that I haven't tried yet. Has ac standard, which I haven't tried yet.

Cons: Price - this router is expensive. Requires electricity.

Other Thoughts: Get this router if you have a medium to large size home. It is hopefully the last one you will need!

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Choice if $$ isn't a factor.

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: FAST. Easy to setup. Great feature set. Online gaming is noticeably faster than isp provided router. Less hang ups while gaming. Extremely stable compared to things I've heard about. Wi-Fi signal reaches two houses down. When in close proximity, Wi-Fi is almost equal to Ethernet speeds.

Cons: None so far. Price.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking to replace an aging router, or are on a Fiber ISP and want to use your own router; this is a fantastic choice. The QoS settings are easy to configure. The WIFI has insane range and speed. Happy with this so far.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth it

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: I have run this router continuously for 6 months without needing to reboot it once. Laptop will connect wirelessly to the web at 56Mb/s all day, everyday. With any previous wireless router experience, setup should take 2 minutes. Nice graphical interface. Easily the best router I have every owned (versus netgear, d-link, linksys). Only router of equal connection reliability is the legendary linksys 54g. Clean, full speed connections up to 40 feet.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsContinuously disconnects...

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: Range is better than most routers.

Cons: This router is awful. I bought this because I read that the reviews were good, but its not. It continuously disconnected every 30 minutes or so, and in some cases I need to restart the router for it to work. Not worth the money for it.

4 out of 5 eggsRe post

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: OK this thing is very fast and reliable. It has good range. It stand vertical which would seem it would stay cooler.

Cons: The utility in the Asus software for connecting printers is a joke. I was very frustrated trying to connect my wireless printer to it. I finally completely uninstalled the printer software on the Laptop/ PC. Then reinstall using the printer software via usb. It finally worked and continues to work I dragged the printer into my sons room to reach the usb cord laptop was easier.
Also only my androids connect to the 5 gz

The Asus utility software - one egg

Other Thoughts: I'm posting this to help anyone with my average tech skills. Don't try to connect your wireless printer via the Asus utility. Try what I did, completely uninstall the printer software then start over. It worked first time via USB. Install it wirelessly via usb using your printer software/drivers.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat a head ache

This review is from: ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

Pros: Well it does work good... It was overkill for what I needed but I was hoping it would be reliable.

Cons: It has yet to be reliable for me.

Other Thoughts: Iv tried 3 different firmware including dd-wrt with all the same results. My first the first one I received would not port forward. So rma'd. About 2 weeks later I got another one. I installed it and everything seemed right, however I noticed I would randomly drop internet daily. I found that the router seems to be crashing and restarting itself pretty much daily. I was about to rma for another one, 2 week after received it to fix this unstable issue, however because it is 30 days after the rma date I am not able to issue another rma... what a waste of $220. Im going to call newegg tomorrow and see if they will rma but right now I don't know whats going to happen. Ill post back once whatever happens happens but bottom line, 2 routers = 2 head aches. and head aches make me sad =[


I do not recommend this product it seems to be quite flaky.
