Reviews
Asus RT-AC68U Wireless AC1900 1300Mbps Dual-band Broadband Router with USB 3.0 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great router. recommended Absolutely brilliant. Works really well. Lots of settings. Fast. Good range.
Date published: 2015-06-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, elegant, a little on the large side The browser based setup tool was easy to access and adjusted the layout when using a mobile browser. The link to set it up as an access point (rather than a router) was visible but not prominent. The front panel is quite stylish and the LEDs can optionally be turned off. The device itself is somewhat tall, and this could cause issues with raising the antennae to the best position when shelf space is tight. Wifi operation is smooth and reliable. Unfortunately due to brick partition walls the range isn't quite what we had hoped for (though still better than our old router) but using an extender has helped with no noticeable loss of bandwidth or stability in the zone covered by the main router. I had wondered whether it was worth forking out on a high-end router but with this Asus model I have not been disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excelent router I have 1 of there routers loaded with dd-wrt and running 3 separate VLANS into separate switches. The wireless gives good coverage and stable connections - all in all a good buy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exellent range and control. The device is extremely easy to use and set - up, It's a pity it dose not include a built-in modem. But it's easy to link to my old router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buy ever Easy set up not had any problems like I had with my Bt homehub 4 which kept kicking any wireless devices and sorted out problems I had with battlefield 4 would recomend it hands down

Questions & Answers

Does it have a modem built in

HI, I'm thinking of buying one, but can you tell me if it support BT line, and does it have a modem built in, Thank You.
Asked by: MAXHIGH
It will require an external modem to function, if you're looking for an all in one ADSL solution you will need something like this LN54597.
