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 understand that...view more

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.

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!

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.

great router

we ditched the old spark modem as it was rubbish and got this one. what a difference, living in a 2 storey house chorus decided to place the modem in the least accessible part of the house, so we could not get much of a signal in the 'back half' of the house. got this little ripper and the whole house is now covered with a good strength signal. the app which you can download on your phone has so many options, great for setting up a separate kids network, with the ability to set times the network stops for them during the school nights and block those naughty sites they shouldn't be on.

Great Coverage

We purchased this as we had never had good reception from the low spec router supplied by our ISP. We have a two storey 4 bedroom house and the fibre had been installed downstairs at one end of the house. There were multiple dead spots in the house where we were able to get internet. We now have just one small spot which we solved using the powerline adapter we already had. A bonus is the much much better speed we are now experiencing.

One of the best out there

I purchased this router on line during their last big sale and once completed received a message
that there were low stocks and delivery might take a week or so. I didn't mind this as the Wireless
router is one of the best out there and the price was really good. A bargain I did not mind waiting for.
The unit arrived the next day.
Cant complain about their service.

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.
