ASUS RT-AC68U Wireless-AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n

5 out of 5 eggs Great Router Highly Recommended 11/10/2014

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

Pros: Very nice GUI, easy to set up, worked perfectly out of the box.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This router, which has excellent reviews, is everything as advertised. I recently purchased a Hitron CGN3 modem/router from my ISP, Rogers. The CGN3 has a lot of known issues, including not supporting a wireless printer and has problems with VOIP. I experienced these problems first-hand and was advised by some people on the Rogers Community forums to get a decent router and bridge the CGN3. A couple of them also highly recommended the RT-AC68U and I'm glad I took their advice. It solved all the issues of the CGN3 right out of the box. One plus that I wasn't expecting is with an older iPhone 4S. With the CGN3, it was getting download speeds of around 24mbps max. With the ASUS, it's getting about 45mbps. I didn't even know the phone would support speeds that high. I'm on the Rogers Hybrid 150 plan, which is why I had to get the CGN3, as it's the only product Rogers has with 24 channels.

CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme GXH525LQ Desktop PC Intel Core i7 4770K (3.50GHz) 8GB DDR3 2TB HDD Windows 8.1 64bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Managed to get my sound card installed despite cable in the way.

Cons: With a large video card (AMD R9 290) plus a Corsair liquid cooler, both X1 expansion slots on the mother board are useless.

Other Thoughts: This is my second and final update to my original review. All issues have been resolved. I was able to install my sound card, despite a cable being in the way. I was able to install it in a non-X1 PCI slot and it works just fine. I have passed on all this info to CyberPower and Newegg support to close my issues.

Pros: Nice and quiet with independent fan control adjustments. It also has a very nice looking Corsair CPU cooler. Case looks kind of cool with red LED's which my Zx sound card also has.

Cons: Cable blocking mother board expansion slots.

Other Thoughts: This is an update to my original review. I persisted with the 7 pin SATA data connection to the hard drive and finally got the pins straightened out enough so that the drive now works. That doesn't excuse CyberPower for shipping it loose at the bottom of the case, though. Fortunately, everything's working fine so far. Just trying to find my way around Win 8.1 as I'm used to a Win 7 system. As all is OK for now, I will not be returning the computer. I just have to figure out how to install my PCI sound card. The mother board has 2 X-1 slots, but they are both right up against the video card. I'm a big gamer, so am looking forward to harnessing the awesome power of the R9-290 4GB video card. Its reviews are excellent.
