Asus Asus DSL-AC68U Dual-Band Wireless AC1900

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 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.

Exclusive ASUS 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. 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.

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 5 GHz band. Highest Speed USB 3.0 features data transfers up 10x 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.

Product Features

  • One device, two functions
    With a choice of DSL or Ethernet WAN connections, DSL-AC68U can be used a DSL modem plus wireless router, or as a standalone wireless router. You can choose the mode to suit your needs, saving energy and clutter by replacing two separate power-hungry devices. Whether for a basic home setup or an advanced wireless network, DSL-AC68U has all the flexibility you need. You can also let two modes work simultaneously and manage them with ASUSWRT dual WAN function.
  • Works with any kind of Internet connection
    Works with any kind of Internet connection DSL-AC68U supports all common types of DSL connection, including ADSL2, ADSL2+, ADSL and VDSL2. Thanks to its Ethernet WAN option, it can also be used seamlessly with any fiber or cable-based modem with an Ethernet connection. This makes it ideal for those who intend to upgrade their ISP in the future.
  • Two CPUs for fast and stable connections
    The DSL-AC68U offers dual CPU performance and flexibility. Its twin processors each optimize wired and wireless connections. By separating wired VDSL/ADSL and Wi-Fi networking into two compute modules with their own dedicated processing power, the DSL-AC68U achieves maximum performance for both connection types with no compromises.
  • World's fastest AC Wi-Fi with TurboQAM Wi-Fi acceleration
    Powered by 5th generation Wi-Fi (5G Wi-Fi), the 802.11ac Broadcom chipset gives the DSL-AC68U superfast Gigabit wireless speeds. Compared with current 802.11n, the DSL-AC68U delivers up to 1.3 Gbps at 5 GHz, which is 3X faster than 802.11n! The upgraded bandwidth has the higher capacity you need to increase Wi-Fi enjoyment at home. With notebooks, desktops, pads, and smartphones now all Wi-Fi-reliant, it's time to upgrade to the next generation so you can expand you connectivity now and in future.
  • AiRadar delivers 150% Wi-Fi coverage
    ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless device connectivity using precise directional signal amplification for extended coverage, increased data throughput speed and enhanced stability. Because connection strength varies based on your environment, DSL-AC68U uses three external high-gain antennas and universal beamforming to detect wireless device locations and shape transmissions so they're optimized for the fastest, most stable connection strength. Most importantly, the universal beamforming not only works on 802.11ac clients, but also 802.11a/b/g/n clients.
  • Highest USB speeds
    The ASUS DSL-AC68U wireless modem router arrives loaded with USB 3.0 port. USB 3.0 offers up to ten times faster transfers than USB 2.0. FTP, HTTP, and UPnP server functions all achieved with instant ease and speed, alongside 3G connection sharing and ASUS AiDisk remote file access and content streaming from a wide range of compatible devices. Best of all, downloading can occur 24/7 even with the PC off, and printers can be shared too.
  • Gigabit Internet browsing with hardware NAT
    Equipped with powerful hardware NAT acceleration and built-in Gigabit Ethernet, the DSL-AC68U wireless modem router gives you full Gigabit LAN-to-WAN performance of more than 900 Mbps, which is over 4.5 times that of traditional software-based NAT Gigabit routers. This reduces the possibility of bottlenecks on fast Internet connections.
  • 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.
  • 3-step easy setup through your pad, smartphone, or PC
    Use your smartphone, tablet, or PC to effortlessly set up your ASUS router in less than 30 seconds and in only 3 easy steps. 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.
  • VPN server and VPN client support for total security and privacy
    DSL-AC68U offers a simple VPN server and VPN client setup, which allows you to access a home network or the Internet privately and securely. On DSL-AC68U you can easily set up a VPN server with PPTP and OpenVPN protocol support, with no need for paid VPN services or a dedicated VPN server. DSL-AC68U can also turn your network-connected devices into VPN-enabled clients via PPTP and L2TP protocols with no need to install VPN software on each of them.
  • Discrete and secure Wi-Fi networks via guest access
    The DSL-AC68U supports up to four wireless networks over the 2.4 GHz band and four over the 5 GHz band, so you can set up usage times and limit access with advanced controls, including parental settings.
