Overview

Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router

NVIDIA GameStream Ready

Your router is about to have a lot more fun. That’s because it can now stream all your favorite PC games to the NVIDIA® SHIELD™ portable to play anywhere in the house using fast, ultra-reliable NVIDIA GameStream™ technology. ASUS routers deliver lag-free, high-performance game streaming from GeForce® GTX™=powered PCs or NVIDIA GRID™ cloud gaming systems.

World’s fastest AC Wi-Fi with TurboQAM™ Wi-Fi acceleration

Powered by 5th generation Wi-Fi (5G Wi-Fi), the new 802.11ac chipset gives the RT-AC68U superfast Gigabit wireless speeds. What's more, RT-AC68U uses TurboQAM™ technology to upgrade 2.4G Wi-Fi even further to give you unprecedented speeds. At 2.4 GHz, it's 33% faster than generic wireless-N900 routers, reaching 600 Mbps, while on the 5 GHz band it blazes to 1300 Mbps - or triple 802.11n rates. That's 1900 Mbps of concurrent wireless power!

Do more at once with dual-core processors inside

The ASUS RT-AC68U features a dual-core processor that eliminates the performance drops that plague other routers. 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. 

Enhanced signal range and stability

ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connectivity using beamforming technology, high power amplification, and exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning. This ensures extended coverage, dynamic data speed increases, and enhanced stability.

Dual-band connectivity for compatibility and performance

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. You can 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 clearer 5 GHz band.
