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.


ASUA RT-AC68RWorld's Fastest AC Wi-Fi with TurboQAM™ Wi-Fi Acceleration

Powered by 5th generation Wi-Fi (5G Wi-Fi), the new 802.11ac chipset gives the RT-AC68R super fast Gigabit wireless speeds. What's more, RT-AC68R uses TurboQAM™ technology to upgrade 2.4G Wi-Fi even further to give you unprecedented speeds. 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!

*To get the best performance, pair RT-AC68R with ASUS PCE-AC68 client card

Ok product, but ASUS rebate took forever! 3/9/2017 6:23:52 AM

Pros: Speed is fast

Cons: Signal Level and range are average; Had to reboot 3 times in the past 3 months because of loss of connection;
What is really bad is the ASUS rebate if there is any, it's been 3 whole months but when I called the rebate processing, they still don't know when they plan to ship the card out. Buyer be aware!!

Decent router, NOT as advertised, slower processor, ASUS lost a decades long customer by blowing off my rebate application 2/20/2017 5:52:21 PM

Pros: Does the job in my home office handling 7 to 15 wired and WiFi devices and 2TB HDD attached to USB 3 port. Copying of 25gb files between two Ethernet wired PC 2x faster than the RT-N66U.

Cons: Received the original version A1 with 800mhz dual core processor, not the advertised newer versions with 1Ghz dual core processors and different chip sets for WiFi.

ASUS blew off the $60 rebate claiming "The maximum number of items or claims have been reached for this offer ". I have been a user of ASUS products since Pentium 2 days. They just lost a customer and I will no longer recommend their products to the clients of my local computer consulting business.

Overall Review: I'm happy with the routers performance using Merlin firmware.

Worked for a day, but easy RMA 1/5/2017 4:46:06 PM

Pros: - Easy to set up
- Fast speeds over 5GHz band in a crowded apartment environment
- Priced on sale + MIR, very affordable

Cons: - WiFi functionality (2.4 and 5 GHz) has disappeared the day after setting it up. Tech support tried a firmware rollback then eventually determined the unit was probably defective.

Overall Review: Bought this to give the option of 5 GHz band after getting tired of fighting with my neighbors over the 2.4 GHz band on our modem/router combo from our ISP. It worked great until the day after setting it up for some reason. After trying tech support twice to resolve the issue, they got me to return it for an exchange. Hopefully the new unit continues to work out because I do like it!

disconnects after about 30 minutes 12/23/2016 5:03:59 PM

Pros: Features are nice, too bad they only work 30 minutes at a time.

Cons: Wireless disconnects after about 30 minutes. Flashed to newest ASUS firmware, no help. Flashed to DD-WRT, same result. Talked to ASUS tech support, was told to send it back.

Overall Review: ASUS tech support was reasonably helpful. Newegg was great about setting up a return/refund. It just did not work...

Very solid router. I am very pleased. 12/20/2016 11:13:06 AM

Pros: - Easy setup, plug and play
- Easy to change setting
- Wide range
- Amazing speed

Cons: None, really happy with it

Overall Review: Used it for about a week and still going strong, no reboot required for any reason. My old wireless connection from my router modem was just horrible. It slowed me down significantly. This router helped me to get what I paid for.

Very Good Performance But Not the Router I Was Expecting 12/19/2016 11:52:55 AM

Pros: Nice upgrade to my Netgear N600 dual band router. Getting improved speed, range, and coverage even with multiple devices connected. Easy to configure and update the firmware. Vertical orientation of the router made it easier to fit in with my other gear. Being able to shut off the led lights is nice when guests are staying in the room.

Cons: Newegg listed the router as having a 1GHz Dual-core CPU but instead I received the A1 version which has an 800 MHz CPU and which I understand has no USB shielding to prevent interference. I see that Newegg has changed to now show the 800 MHz CPU. At the moment I am not using the USB ports but would like to be able to in the future.

Overall Review: For $56.99 after Promo Code and ASUS rebate this is a great router, but it's not what I ordered.
