FEATURES

World's Fastest - For Those Who Run Ahead

The ASUS RT-AC68R is the world's fastest Wi-Fi router, with combined dual-band data rates of up to 1900Mbps. 1300Mbps 802.11ac at 5GHz gives Gigabit wireless data rates, while Broadcom® TurboQAM™ technology super-charges 2.4GHz 802.11n performance from 450Mbps to 600Mbps with compatible devices.

Powered by a dual-core processor, the RT-AC68R 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-AC68R 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-AC68R 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.

At 2.4GHz, it's 33% faster than generic wireless-N900 routers, reaching 600Mbps, while on the 5GHz band it blazes to 1300Mbps - or triple 802.11n rates. That's 1900Mbps of concurrent wireless power!
