Asus RT-AC68U Specifications


Broadcom 800 MHz Dual Core Processor

The RT-AC68U model bumps the internal processor to a DD-WRT high-powered 800 MHz Broadcom CPU. This is the one of the best dual core routers we offer with DD-WRT support.

Processing is the key to high performance routing, and this one has room to burn and grow as streaming video demands become increasingly more intensive. For VPN users, having a large processor is imperative for the constant encryption and decryption the router will have to perform in the process. The better the processor, the faster the VPN encrypted information can get to you.

USB 3.0 Port

The RT-AC68U includes a USB 3.0 port for best-in-class, high speed data transfer (up to 10x faster than USB 2.0) and network sharing. A second USB 2.0 port is also included. Use these 2 integrated USB ports to attach a backup storage device, Network Attached Storage (NAS) backup, or to create a network printer. The faster the USB ports, the faster you can do network backups, transfer, & share files between devices.

Next Generation WiFi with Wireless-AC Speed, Wireless-N Compatible

Wireless-AC is the newest wireless draft for exponential signal capacity in WiFi market, and it's considerably faster than Wireless-N and Wireless-G. While Wireless-G tops out at 54 Mbps and Wireless N ranges from 450 to 900 Mbps, AC can more than double the top end capabilities of Wireless-N.

We combine that power with the DD-WRT added perks of being able to manage wireless transmission power, manage access restrictions, a built-in SPI firewall, a bevy of graphing, logs, and monitoring features.

Compatible with Wireless-N/A/B/G/H devices like Xbox One, AppleTV, PS4 & Boxee Box, old laptops, and many others - it's also a boon for those looking for high quality HD video streaming or improved Skype video chat/FaceTime - the Asus RT-AC68U is created to handle all of that and more!

Best in Class RAM/Flash Memory in a Wireless Router

The embedded 256 RAM matches the top end of router-based RAM, and offers 128 MB of active flash memory for flashing the most powerful and malleable DD-WRT build around: the Kong AC build. RAM and Flash memory are important to the caching and saving of sites because they hasten connectivity to your most frequently visited sites. With more processor, powerful RAM/Flash memory are a must.

High Powered External Antennas

Offering the highest available dual band wireless speeds with up to 1900 Mbps Wireless-AC (600 2.4 Mbps & 1300 5.0 Mbps), the RT-AC68U delivers the fastest performance for handling a large amount of connected devices from three external antennas.

The Asus RT-AC68U integrates three high-powered external antennas for maximum wireless reach and performance. Since they are external, they are easily upgradable to even more powerful antennas for extended reach if you so desire.
