Features



Future-proofed versatility with the world's fastest wireless speeds

The ASUS DSL-AC68U is the world's fastest ADSL/VDSL modem Wi-Fi router, with combined dual-band data rates of up to 1900 Mbps. On the 5GHz band, 802.11ac gives 1300 Mbps wireless data rates, while Broadcom TurboQAM technology super-charges 2.4 GHz 802.11n performance from 450 Mbps to 600 Mbps with compatible devices. Compatible with ADSL2/2+, ADSL, VDSL2, fiber and cable services, the top specification completes future-proofing.

Three external antennas boost coverage to the next level, so you can enjoy lag-free gaming and streaming almost anywhere around the house. ASUS AiRadar with universal beamforming technology enhances the Wi-Fi stability and improves coverage up to 150%*. Most importantly, the universal beamforming not only works on 802.11ac clients, but also 802.11a/b/g/n clients.

Powered by dual dedicated CPUs for wired and wireless connections, the DSL-AC68U eliminates the performance drops that plague other routers with busy networks and maximizes both range and stability. 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 easy-to-use ASUSWRT graphical user interface unlocks the power of the DSL-AC68U 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. One device, two functions

With a choice of DSL or Ethernet WAN connections, DSL-AC68U can be used a DSL modem plus wireless router, or as a standalone wireless router. You can choose the mode to suit your needs, saving energy and clutter by replacing two separate power-hungry devices. Whether for a basic home setup or an advanced wireless network, DSL-AC68U has all the flexibility you need. You can also let two modes work simultaneously and manage them with ASUSWRT dual WAN function.



Two CPUs for fast and stable connections


The DSL-AC68U offers dual CPU performance and flexibility. Its twin processors each optimize wired and wireless connections. By separating wired VDSL/ADSL and Wi-Fi networking into two compute modules with their own dedicated processing power, the DSL-AC68U achieves maximum performance for both connection types with no compromises.


World's fastest AC Wi-Fi with TurboQAM Wi-Fi acceleration


Powered by 5th generation Wi-Fi (5G Wi-Fi), the new 802.11ac Broadcom chipset gives the DSL-AC68U superfast Gigabit wireless speeds. Compared with current 802.11n, the DSL-AC68U delivers up to 1.3Gbps at 5 GHz, which is 3X faster than 802.11n! The upgraded bandwidth has the higher capacity you need to increase Wi-Fi enjoyment at home. With notebooks, desktops, pads, and smartphones now all Wi-Fi-reliant, it's time to upgrade to the next generation so you can expand you connectivity now and in future.

AiRadar delivers 150% Wi-Fi coverage*
 

 
ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless device connectivity using precise directional signal amplification for extended coverage, increased data throughput speed and enhanced stability. Because connection strength varies based on your environment, DSL-AC68U uses three external high-gain antennas and universal beamforming to detect wireless device locations and shape transmissions so they're optimized for the fastest, most stable connection strength. Most importantly, the universal beamforming not only works on 802.11ac clients, but also 802.11a/b/g/n clients.


Highest USB speeds
 
 

 
The ASUS DSL-AC68U wireless modem router arrives loaded with USB 3.0 port. USB 3.0 offers up to ten times faster transfers than USB 2.0. FTP, HTTP, and UPnP server functions all achieved with instant ease and speed, alongside 3G/4G connection sharing and ASUS AiDisk remote file access and content streaming from a wide range of compatible devices. Best of all, downloading can occur 24/7 even with the PC off, and printers can be shared too.


Gigabit Internet browsing with hardware NAT
 

Equipped with powerful hardware NAT acceleration and built-in Gigabit Ethernet, the DSL-AC68U wireless modem router gives you full Gigabit LAN-to-WAN performance of more than 900 Mbps, which is over 4.5 times that of traditional software-based NAT Gigabit routers. This reduces the possibility of bottlenecks on fast internet connections.


Sync. Share. Stream. Your world on demand
 

ASUS AiCloud keeps you connected to your data wherever and whenever you have an internet connection. It links your home network and online Web storage service* and lets you access it through the AiCloud mobile app on your iOS or Android smartphone or through a personalized URL in a Web browser. Even better, the new Router-to-Router Sync function allows you to synchronize your stuff with storage devices connected to other compatible ASUS routers- it's as simple as choosing a sync folder. Sharing with friends and family is now easier than ever!
* Works with select Web storage services only.


Robust control and optimization with ASUSWRT
 

With the ASUSWRT dashboard UI, setup, monitor, and control network applications all in one intuitive area. On top of 30-second setup, multi-device detection, and flexible settings that make the most of your network performance, it's been upgraded with quick scanning of USB storage connected to routers to verify data integrity and drive health. Dual WAN enables having two connections/ISPs on one router, with load balance and failover mode for added stability and redundancy to ensure uninterrupted internet access.
Do you game a lot, or spend most of your time streaming videos? Whatever your planned use is, the DSL-AC68U has Quality of Service (QoS) standards that let you select how much bandwidth is prioritized for virtually any task. Plus, the traffic monitor allows you to check your Web usage in a clear graphical interface. Try our ASUSWRT


3-step easy setup through your pad, smartphone, or PC
 
Use your smartphone, tablet, or PC to effortlessly set up your ASUS router in less than 30 seconds* and in only 3 easy steps. Simply connect the cables to the router, open a Web browser, and follow the setup wizard to get you to the internet in no time.
* ASUS-tested and verified setup time. Actual duration may vary by ISP, specific connection type, location, and other factors.


VPN server and VPN client support for total security and privacy
 
 
DSL-AC68U offers a simple VPN server and VPN client setup, which allows you to access a home network or the internet privately and securely. On DSL-AC68U you can easily set up a VPN server with PPTP and OpenVPN protocol support, with no need for paid VPN services or a dedicated VPN server. DSL-AC68U can also turn your network-connected devices into VPN-enabled clients via PPTP and L2TP protocols with no need to install VPN software on each of them.


Download and stream anywhere
 
 
Download Master and enhanced media server let you download and play multimedia files stored on router-attached USB storage on a wide range of compatible devices such as PC, pad, PS4, Xbox, and smart TV. Download Master can also download files while your PC is turned off, and allows you to manage and monitor download status remotely.

 
 
Discrete and secure Wi-Fi networks via guest access
 
 
The DSL-AC68U supports up to four wireless networks over the 2.4 GHz band and four over the 5 GHz band, so you can set up usage times and limit access with advanced controls, including parental settings.

So Far So Good

I have to admit I've had terrible luck with ASUS routers. Being that I'm stuck with ADSL my choices were fairly limited and the DSL-AC68U is doing very well so far. Easy to set up and hasn't required constant rebooting like my previous ASUS router did.

Would have been great to be able to import settings from the previous one, but definitely not the end of the world.

Finally a Stable Modem

We purchased this in desperation because our new Spark Smart Modem was really smart at kicking us off our connection 4-6 times per day.
The ASUS has been with us for nearly a month now and we have had continuous connectivity throughout that time ..... as you might expect from a modem.

ASUS DSL-AC68U Wouldn't recommend

Got this modem router when we were using ADSL2+ and product was adverted being able to use VDSL & Fiber via Wan so saw it as future proofing if we were able to get a better connection which very fortunately we were able to get a VDSL connection but unfortunately this modem doesn't actually work with New Zealand VDSL so is now a paperweight

Excellent Router

We're loving our new ASUS Modem Router. The whole house can now access super fast wifi without the need for boosters and having fibre has meant blistering fast access to the web. I've repurposed our ASUS extender now to give really excellent wifi connection to our 2 workshops further out on the property. A really great piece of kit with easy setup and a pretty good UI. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting a major step up from the usual devices supplied by ISP. Well worth the investment.

Just what I wanted

I recently moved from the city to a lifestyle block and went from fibre back to vdsl. I already had an ASUS fibre router, so purchased this one so i could mesh the two together. Easy to setup, and now i have a wifi point at each end of the house.

Works like a charm

The fit and finish of the unit is good, has some weight to it which is nice feature for a modem/router that is priced on the more expensive side. I was after the additional features such as built in VPN capabilities (includes Openvpn) along with the ssh functionality makes this a great addition to the work from home life.
