The ASUS RT-AC68U is the 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.

5* Good Router, No Modem
Reviewed by Anonymous on 03/10/2014
Got this today. This is a high end router. It has got a lot of capability, far beyond my original purpose for buying it.
-aicloud
-DDNS
-Printer server
-Connect a separate USB drive
-VPN

It's also fairly easy to use, just a little fiddly depending on what you're doing. (I'd give it a 4.5 for ease of use.) It does have a Quick Setup function, so it's fairly straightforward.

The only "drawback" is it doesn't have a built in modem, so you either have to buy a separate Ethernet modem, or connect it to a router with a modem. If you're using this to connect to a VPN service, you need an Ethernet modem (easiest option), or a router set to bridged mode (something to coordinate with your ISP).
