COMBO DEALS: Buy Together and SAVE!
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
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.
Highest USB speeds
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.

I bought this to setup on fibre because our free Huawai one wasn't cutting it. Really happy with it. Getting over 100mbps through WIFI through 2 walls and about 10 metres away.
Note - if you have fibre, you need to convert one of the 4 LAN ports to a WAN port (internet) so you can connect the cord from the Chorus fibrebox. You do this by logging into the router - https://www.asus.com/my/support/FAQ/1016292/
A Great Unit
I am on Spark copper, streaming Netflix via ethernet, but the old Thomson router started playing up so Spark replaced it with a Huawei HG531cV1. The streaming issue was resolved but the Huawei's wifi signal was hopeless and much worse than the Thomson. We use the wifi for 2 mobile phones and a tablet that periodically needs to connect. The signal 5 metres away from the router through only 1 gib wall, was intermittent and wavered from 1mbs to 5mbs and I couldn't even get wifi in a room directly above the router. The ASUS has solved or that - now I have a high strength wifi right through the house. I am not a techie so there was a bit of...view more
Replaced the crappy Spark Huawei modem and now have coverage throughtout the house ...
Setup via Modem Config Settings was a breeze.
Highly recommended modem
Running 4 k TV a , PS4...3 laptops and 3-4 cell phones
Not so great for speed
I got this router based on all the reviews i saw about people getting better speeds then the supplied ISP one and the added features and significantly better wifi range.
The wifi range increase is amazing and the xtra features it offers are great.
But i get 20% slower download speeds and 50% slower upload speeds with this router vs with the isp one. These tests were all done through Ethernet, many times. I did all the basic trouble shooting i could find online and nothing helped. Reset router multiple times, updated firmware - the firmware update actually made the speeds even worse.
So i have had to go back to the isp router as the r...view more
A Great little Router
Have had this router just on a month now and functions perfectly (has fixed my internet drop out issue and no longer need to constantly reboot as per old router). Easy set up for VDSL connection and extensive functionality from Router app. Great range to all areas of the household and good strong speeds.
Replaced the default Vodafone modem with the ASUS DSL-AC68U. I am on VDSL and this has improved the upload speed by more than 50%, download speed unchanged. Only running for less than 2 weeks so far so still more to learn. Still to setup the Guest WiFi.
WiFi connection speeds are much better with newer devices.
I like the phone app as I can see what the usage is and devices using the network. Had to adjust some of the device default names so they are easily recognised on the app. I setup the Family members for the associated devices in the house but found there is a limit on monitored devices (16). You can monitor all activity by user t...view more
Bought this because the Vodafone UltraHub was delivering very slow VDSL speeds. Have used for over a month now and this modem provides speeds close to Chorus's test of the line and has a lot of good features missing from the UltraHub like Guest Wifi and VPN Server plus many others. The only feature NOT supplied compared with the Vodafone modem is VOIP telephone support so we needed a different solution for our phone.
Purchased this router to replace the (second) Spark crap Huwei modem that had stopped working. Had it running two weeks now - so far, so good. A solid unit.
Easy to set up. Stronger signal. Great coverage. Would recommend.
Setup is very easy since there is a ton of videos (YouTube) on this product assuming you have fiber.
Speed wise over WIFI is basically doubled (from 40 to 80+Mbps download) with strong signal strength, note ping will be the same roughly since its still WIFI.
So in terms of online games expect less to or no drop outs but same old ping latency.
1 year on review
I've had this over a year now... its been brilliant.
From a house that has quite a few connections, this beast handles it with no problems.
Have a big house and made a mesh network with a blue cave. It all runs from the router and never had any drop outs or loss signal.
Never needed to restart the router the past year. Could not be happier with this.
Stable at least
It was pretty stable and had good range. I say "had" because I returned it. It wouldn't keep the correct time for parental controls....and I thought we lived in 2019?
Excellent, once set up
Set up was a little hard for me (I dont know much about Router settings), and out the box I could not get connected. But with help from the excellent ASUS CS team via emails, got it working. And now I've been using it for the last few weeks, I have found this to be excellent, with all the additional settings (ones I understand). More so, this is the best Router I've had. I purchased this mainly for the VPN settings to have at the Router level. And for such an excellent price, I'm very happy.
