For the second year in a row, Asus wins our Readers' Choice Award and customer satisfaction keeps improving. We can't wait to see if it will overtake Apple in 2014.
ASUS recently launched the RT-AC68U dual-band 802.11 ac router. Asus claims that this is the world’s first dual-band 802.11ac router with AC1900 data rates of 1900Mbit/s and personal cloud storage support. In terms of WiFi bands, the 802.11ac is actually three-times faster than 802.11n, but the RT-AC68U makes it even faster with a 2.4GHz data rate of 600Mbit/s. With the above things combined, the RT-AC68U is nearly 33% times faster than the ordinary WiFi routers.
The ASUS RT-AC68U features ASUS AiRadar technology that focuses the Wi-Fi for a stronger connection using beam forming and that is less prone to interference. Because of focussed WiFi, RT-AC68U is able to deliver WiFi across a more wider coverage area(150% more than the other routers.The RT-AC68U features the exclusive ASUS AiCloud technology that makes light work of sharing files without the fuss of managing user access rights and FTP access with a Router-to-Router Sync feature.It also makes transferring files between various connected devices easy and fast. ASUS RT-AC68U also comes with ASUS AiCloud that lets the customers sync, share, stream, and access content located on connected USB storage from any location, using the RT-AC68U as their home cloud server. ASUS AiCloud is compatible with iOS, Android, and Windows PC.

This router is really good - I've been getting consistent speeds above 50MB/s while transferring files to computers around the house - having AC wireless adapters is a must for this router for it to be worth the price though - easily maxes out an N connection.
Overall, there is nothing I truly dislike about this router - no you can't mount it to a wall, but for me, it's not really an issue.
Best router i have used. Updated to the latest firmware which supports TimeMachine on Mac. Love the option to turn the led lights off. Coverage is not as good as I have thought. Overall, a very good router with a lot of features.
I replaced a dying DIR-825 with this router. This was a huge improvement. The range is excellent, much better than the DIR-825. Throughput seems improved for existing N devices. AC bandwidth is amazing.
I'm very happy with my purchase of this router. I'm also glad I ordered through NCIX because of the price and also I placed the order just yesterday and received it this morning! Setup took only a couple of minutes and I was up and running and I can tell you it is better than any normal small router like my old D-Link DIR-825 with 7DBI antennas. I also happened to attach three 9DBI dual band antennas on this router and it works good with them. Like I said, I'm very happy with my purchase!!
Solid router, with easy setup that most people can follow. Lot's of good options for network setup and also if you want to connect this router to other routers in the network.
I am having an issue streaming netflix from certain devices, and this is still unresolved with ASUS. I have also noticed that there is a number of people experiencing the similar problems streaming netflix using this router to tv's, blu-ray's and tablets.
I have a 60' antennae and have to use line of sight for interenet. I would get as many as 10 disconnects a day albeit only for five to ten seconds. Not great when playing online poker! I tried many different routers all to no avail.
