    Speedy WiFi

    Ideal for streaming high definition video, the Asus RT-AC68U Wireless Cable & Fibre Router offers fast transfer speeds for a perfectly connected home. The RT-AC68U allows you to stream HD video, take part in online gaming and download files in a flash thanks to Gigabit wireless transfer speeds and reliable dual band technology.

    The 2.4 GHz band can deliver up to 600 Mbps, whilst the 5 GHz band can deliver 1300 Mbps. This means that you can take advantage of the 2.4 GHz band for simple internet tasks such as web browsing and file downloading, whilst the 5 GHz band is ideal for streaming in Full HD or online gaming.

    Reliable wireless connections

    While standard routers send out signals uniformly around your house, the RT-AC68U uses beamforming technology to directly target any compatible WiFi devices. This creates a more stable and speedy connection so that you don't have to wait for a thing.
     
    Fantastic connectivity

    Perfect for transferring files, attaching external storage drives or setting up a shared printer, the RT-AC68U Wireless Router includes USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 connections. There are also five Gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting your wired devices to the internet, whether it's your Smart TV or your PC.

    Using AiCloud technology, you'll be able to connect to your data wherever you go. Access your home content from your iOS or Android smartphone, or through a web browser.

    Download Master allows you to download files even when your PC is turned off, which means you'll always have access to everything you want.
