Asus RT-AC68U Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router

PC Magazine
5 days ago
  • Conclusion: The Asus RT-AC68U Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router is an excellent performer and shows that Asus's 802.11ac technology has matured since the release of the RT-AC66U. While it's stellar in 802.11ac mode, those with 802.11n-only clients may not see much benefit over its predecessor.
  • Pros: Topped our speed and range tests in 802.11ac mode. Advanced features suited for small business. Clean, polished user management interface.
  • Cons: Not much benefit over previous models for networks with only 802.11n wireless clients. No automatic notification of new firmware. Non-removable stand.

Asus RT-AC68U 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless Router Review

3 May 2014
  • Conclusion: As we start to take a look at some of the next generation wireless routers, with speeds that are far superior to those of yesteryear, it is crystal clear now that no longer do we have to worry about our wireless connections acting as a huge bottleneck in our heavily connected and technology driven lives. Going back only a couple of years, where Gigabit LAN was starting to be fully set in stone as the standard for Consumer grade products and systems.
  • Pros: Superior wireless signal strength and throughput speed, Dual-WAN capability with fail over protection and load balancing, Mobile applications for access to USB storage and router setup, More than capable of delivering the power needed for the next couple of years, Highly reputable brand when it comes to quality
  • Cons: Wireless adaptors capable of operating at the same high speeds are very limited at the moment, Unsecured wireless networks out of the box are not wise – basic security at least is far better, Not necessarily the first name you would think of when it comes to networking

The New Wireless Flagship Device or ASUS RT-AC68U

27 January 2014
  • Summary: Generally, we are quite glad about RT-AC68U, which can justifiably called the best device in the wireless router production line-up by ASUS. The device demonstrated great wired and wireless speeds as well as high access speeds to the data stored on an external HDD. The only thing that puzzles us is its price—250 USD—that may scare a Russian customer away.
  • Pros: Excellent speeds in the wireless network segment, Support of OpenVPN, High operation speeds with an external USB disc, Support of double WAN port, Great wired speeds, Ability to create up to three guest networks in each wireless range, Support of IPv6
  • Cons: The web-interface is not completely translated, High price

ASUS RT-AC68U and Linksys EA6900 review

13 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Until recently, the fastest 802.11ac routers were labeled 'AC1750' or something along those lines. That refers to the combined theoretical bandwidth of the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz bands. On 2.4 GHz that is 450 Mbps and on 5 GHz that is 1.3 Gbps. The new routers have the same speed on the 5 GHz frequency, but on 2.4 GHz they're now capable of 600 Mbps. The ASUS RT-AC68U and the Linksys EA6900 we will look at today are the first two routers of that new generation.

Asus RT-AC56U and RT-AC68U

1 November 2013
  • Conclusion: There's no denying the fact that the latest generation of Wireless AC routers can provide a significant boost in WiFi performance in and around the home. Yet, while the technology is sound and the speed benefits are clear to see, premium solutions such as the RT-AC56U and RT-AC68U won't immediately prove beneficial to all users.
