Meet the Asus RT-AC68U AC1900 Tomato ( or the Asus RT-AC68R Tomato), a networking centerpiece with power and style for future-proofing a WiFi network to next-gen Wireless-AC standards. The latest of our Asus Wireless-AC Tomato Routers prepares your network for all of the latest devices while still offering full support for legacy devices (Wireless-G), and providing top-level dual band Wireless-N speeds.
Want better quality Netflix, Amazon Instant, Hulu, or BBC iPlayer on a Roku 3, AppleTV, or WDTV Live? Need to rise above interference problems from neighboring WiFi routers? Want VPN Client & Server Integration for OpenVPN or PPTP? Of course you do. Suffering from standard manufacturer security holes? Not with this router, you don't. Tomato is developed with advanced security and customization in mind to create the network you've always dreamed of.
The RT-AC68U model bumps the internal processor to a Tomato high-powered 800 MHz Broadcom CPU. This is the one of the best dual core routers we offer with Tomato 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 enabling 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.
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.
Wireless-AC is the newest wireless draft for exponential signal capacity in the 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 Tomato-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, & Chromecast, to old laptops - and a boon for those looking for high quality HD video streaming or improved Skype video chat/FaceTime - the RT-AC68U Tomato FlashRouter is upgraded to handle it and more!

Forget spending hours deciphering and testing the DD-WRT forums/website/Wiki for the correct hardware version and proper build only to discover that you've improperly flashed your device and bricked it.
