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.

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.

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.

Good WiFi Router, good software app

A good product at a good price point. Far better WiFi range than my ISP-supplied device. Covers a whole large house when placed in the middle on 2.4GHz. Easy to use software for setup and configuring the network functionality including a guest network for visitors' use. Specs claim speeds far greater than my internet connection can reach, so I a fairly future-proof. Dual band so I stream 5GHz to TV for speed and 2.4GHz to devices through the house and decks.

Better Router

Replaced a Spark HG630b router when fibre was finally installed. Noticeably Faster. Better range. Router setup has changed a bit from the PBTech guide. Also need to set: LAN > IPTV > Selected ISP Profile to "Spark" (or whomever).

Great Router

For fibre, the internet speed with this Router compared to the stock issued by Trustpower is ten folded. Wish I had of bit the bullet and spent the money months ago. Not to bad to setup and copied the advice of one reviewer below for Trustpower setup (easy) and used the settings in this link https://www.pbtech.co.nz/ASUSISPSettings#VDFRTAC and this work perfect on the date 20/09/2019. I wish all electronic things you buy were this good and trouble-free out of the box like this thing.

Good quality product

After being given the run-around from our ISP saying that the fault was with our connection instead of faulty ISP-supplied modem, I got frustrated and bought this router. All of a sudden no more internet drops and we even have better Wi-Fi range.
I definitely recommend this product. You truly get what you pay for.

Good once working

It works really well now that we have it working. Unless you’re an OT worker it’s difficult to set up. I spent hours googling, contacted ASUS support, Spark support and decided to take it back to PB. The guy there told me he has heaps of these back because there’s a lack of instructions and support. He took a few minutes and it was all good to go. Well, thank you very much Asus and PB Tech for wasting hours and hours. How about a little mention of this when you go through the check out?

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

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!
