World's Fastest - For Those Who Run Ahead

The ASUS RT-AC68U is the world's fastest Wi-Fi router, with combined dual-band data rates of up to 1900 Mbps. 1300 Mbps 802.11ac at 5 GHz gives Gigabit wireless data rates, while Broadcom TurboQAM technology super-charges 2.4 GHz 802.11n performance from 450 Mbps to 600 Mbps with compatible devices.

Powered by a dual-core processor, the RT-AC68U 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-AC68U 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-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.


AiProtection for advanced security

AiProtection, incorporating state-of-the-art, three-pronged security from Trend Micro™, makes RT-AC68U one of the most secure home routers you can buy. As well as providing some of the most advanced parental controls in any mainstream router, it blocks malicious addresses and intrusions for your PC or device, and alerts you if an infected device is connected. Potential weaknesses such as password strength and operating system vulnerabilities are also monitored at all times. Moreover, AiProtection even protects Wi-Fi devices without frequent security patches such as smart TV, game console, ip camera and smart home devices, giving you total peace of mind.

NVIDIA GameStream Ready

Your router is about to have a lot more fun. That's because it can now stream all your favorite PC games to the NVIDIA SHIELD portable to play anywhere in the house using fast, ultra-reliable NVIDIA GameStream technology. ASUS routers deliver lag-free, high-performance game streaming from GeForce GTX powered PCs or NVIDIA GRID cloud gaming systems. For more information, visit


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

Powered by 5th generation Wi-Fi (5G Wi-Fi), the new 802.11ac chipset gives the RT-AC68U superfast Gigabit wireless speeds. What's more, RT-AC68U uses TurboQAM™ technology to upgrade 2.4G Wi-Fi even further to give you unprecedented speeds. At 2.4 GHz, it's 33% faster than generic wireless-N900 routers, reaching 600 Mbps, while on the 5 GHz band it blazes to 1300 Mbps - or triple 802.11n rates. That's 1900 Mbps of concurrent wireless power!

 

Do more at once with dual-core processors inside

The ASUS RT-AC68U features a dual-core processor that eliminates the performance drops that plague other routers. 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.




Enhanced signal range and stability

ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connectivity using beamforming technology, high power amplification, and exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning. This ensures extended coverage, dynamic data speed increases, and enhanced stability.

Dual-band connectivity for compatibility and performance

Delivering 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz concurrent bands at up to 600 Mbps and 1300 Mbps, respectively, the RT-AC68U has a total speed of up to 1900 Mbps, and maintains complete stability. You can perform basic tasks like Web browsing and file downloading on the 2.4 GHz band, while simultaneously allowing multiple devices to stream in Full HD or support online gaming and other bandwidth-demanding applications smoothly on the clearer 5 GHz band.


Ultimate USB speed and versatility

Highest Speed USB 3.0 features data transfers up ten times faster than USB 2.0. Two USB ports make the RT-AC68U perfect for file, multimedia, and 3G/4G sharing, while ASUS AiDisk offers remote access and quick content streaming. Where other routers have their USB ports sandwiched next to one another, both RT-AC68U USB ports are evenly spaced for easy access to either at all times.


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 RT-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.

Easy 3-step setup

Use your smartphone, tablet, or PC to effortlessly set up your ASUS router in less than 30 seconds and in only 3 easy steps1. 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 AiCloud - 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!


Powerful online multitasking with 300,000 data sessions

Support for a massive data pipeline of up to 300,000 data sessions means the RT-AC68U has around 20 times the networking capacity of conventional routers for exceptionally smooth performance.


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, PS3, 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.



VPN server enabled

Easily set up a VPN server to browse the web and access data - no matter where you are. Featuring MPPE encryption, your data transmission remains always secure and confidential.


Discrete and secure Wi-Fi networks via guest access

What a great product.

I personally use the dual WAN to split my traffic up between two home wireless connections as we cannot yet get fibre and it works a treat! Even in load balance mode, if connection 1 goes down, all traffic is simply re-routed to connection 2 even if you've specified a particular device to use connection 1. Brilliant.

On top of that, a friend of mine has fibre with Vodafone and the VLAN tagging works perfectly. When using fibre, I got the OpenVPN to work with iOS as well.

Wifi range is better than an Airport time capsule. The beam forming makes a noticeable difference to reception when the router is at one end of...view more

As others have said, very easy to setup, improved the wi-fi signal in around the house and movies etc stream much better. The Android app is a bonus and the parental filters and times (which is why I purchased this router) is good.

Only bad thing was it was a bit tricky to get the fiber connection working with trustPower, needed to go into an advanced section to set something but that didn't take long and google is your friend here.

RT-AC68U

If you are connecting to Trustpower fibre go to this page. https://www.pbtech.co.nz/ASUSISPSettings#VDFRTAC
Read the settings you need for your provider to set this up as a router (not a modem). I have wasted so much time trying to get this connected and it was just one little setting that needed to be changed.
If you have problems, don’t bother ringing the ASUS help desk. The guy was trying to help but after 45 minutes I conceded that we couldn’t really understand each other’s accents and we were going around in circles. Trustpower were equally unhelpful as they are not prepared to give advice on third party products. I understan...view more

Great Router

Purchased to replaced the ISP provided router. Since replacing have not had any drop offs with WiFi along with much better speeds even though we have alot of things connected. The software is amazing for being able to separate out different users with different connections and the ability to set connection times for the kids.

Maximum connected devices

Operating a small business, we began to experience regular internet connectivity issues when the team grew and the number of connected devices increased.

Replacing the basic router provided by our ISP with the ASUS RT-AC68U took this problem away, setup was simple and speed has also increased with ISP quoted speeds now a reality.

It's been a month and I only wish we did this sooner.

Great router

Never had drop offs or any issues with it. Looking for second hand one to use AiMesh in granny flat so I don't have to switch SSID's.
If you have children the parental controls on this as awesome. I can assign each device be it phone, laptop or game console to a kids profile then pause the lots is need be. Time schedules and be assigned to each kids profile including site filtering like social or streaming R rated etc. All from web interface on your PC or iOS / Android apps.

Great product have had this for over a month now and has not missed a beat. I have had many routers and they have frustrations in setting up but the GUI for setting up is so easy and the support/apps are very user friendly, this is worth every dollar spent.

A bit too challenging for me!

I purchased this device after reading multiple reviews of how good it was and was excited for the potential it held. Unfortunately that excitement was short lived as once out of the box and attempting to install, it would not connect to the fibre line at home. I ran through all of the setup instructions (including the manual setting changes for the network provider we are with) however nothing I did would connect the WIFI.

In the end I returned the product and purchased the ORBI device which was another product I had heard excellent things about - that one definitely worked and would have no hesitations recommending!

Excellent product

This is a really big step up from our previous router, which was just the crappy default model which the ISP provided. It's very easy to set up, the admin UI is great and the bandwidth improvement is sensational.

I work in an office separate to the building the router is in and the previous router would sometimes get down to speeds as low as 10kb/s! The Asus router has no issue at all, the adjustable antennae help a lot.

I've only used it for work and streaming 1080p Netflix, but not for 4K streaming or for gaming, so I can't comment on that.

Used with 2degrees home fiber. Mainly for open VPN function.

I got this to use with a VPN on my home network to access Netflix US library.

Setting up for 2degrees required some guesswork on one of the settings. I suggest asking the Asus support for clarification before you disconnect the old modem. (Nordvpn chat support is excellent BTW).

Worked well and boosted my download speeds when not going through the vpn.

For fibre you specifically want the one without the modem, as the Chorus ONT acts as the modem.

Nord VPN would be through from your device, not from the router. This will replace your router by connecting directly to the fibre box.

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

Powered by 5th generation Wi-Fi (5G Wi-Fi), the new 802.11ac chipset gives the RT-AC68U superfast Gigabit wireless speeds. What's more, RT-AC68U uses TurboQAM™ technology to upgrade 2.4G Wi-Fi even further to give you unprecedented speeds. At 2.4 GHz, it's 33% faster than generic wireless-N900 routers, reaching 600 Mbps, while on the 5 GHz band it blazes to 1300 Mbps - or triple 802.11n rates. That's 1900 Mbps of concurrent wireless power!

 

Do more at once with dual-core processors inside

The ASUS RT-AC68U features a dual-core processor that eliminates the performance drops that plague other routers. 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.




Enhanced signal range and stability

ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connectivity using beamforming technology, high power amplification, and exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning. This ensures extended coverage, dynamic data speed increases, and enhanced stability.

Dual-band connectivity for compatibility and performance

Delivering 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz concurrent bands at up to 600 Mbps and 1300 Mbps, respectively, the RT-AC68U has a total speed of up to 1900 Mbps, and maintains complete stability. You can perform basic tasks like Web browsing and file downloading on the 2.4 GHz band, while simultaneously allowing multiple devices to stream in Full HD or support online gaming and other bandwidth-demanding applications smoothly on the clearer 5 GHz band.


Ultimate USB speed and versatility

Highest Speed USB 3.0 features data transfers up ten times faster than USB 2.0. Two USB ports make the RT-AC68U perfect for file, multimedia, and 3G/4G sharing, while ASUS AiDisk offers remote access and quick content streaming. Where other routers have their USB ports sandwiched next to one another, both RT-AC68U USB ports are evenly spaced for easy access to either at all times.


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 RT-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.

Easy 3-step setup

Use your smartphone, tablet, or PC to effortlessly set up your ASUS router in less than 30 seconds and in only 3 easy steps1. 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 AiCloud - 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!
