Asus RT-AC68P Review

Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router with Broadcom® TurboQAM™ technology, five gigabit ethernet ports, ASUS AiCloud, and Dual-core processor.

The Asus RT-AC68P (RT-AC68P) router released in 2014. It really is driven by Broadcom BCM4709A0 @ 1 GHz chipset, 256 MB RAM, and 128 MB flash. The AC1900 router works with IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards, and the utmost velocity that you could get with RT-AC68P is usually 600 + 1300 Mbps.

The Guest network is really a useful feature of the RT-AC68P router that creates another network for guests. It has 1 x USB 2.0, 1 x USB 3.0 slot(s).

The RT-AC68P router has 1 x 10/100/1000 Mbps WAN and 4 x 10/100/1000 Mbps LAN ports.

Design

The RT-AC68U gets the same sharp style because of the RT-AC66U, with the gold Asus logo design and snazzy ornamental diamond design on the chassis. Its dimensions are usually those of Asus’ typically small router form element. It steps 6.0 by 8.0 by 6.3 ins (HWD) and weighs 1.4 weight. One design switch I don’t look after is the inclusion of a non-detachable stand. The RT-AC66U delivered with detachable remains. The brand new router is meant to operate much better in vertical placement, but I’d still prefer having the ability to select whether to utilize it.

Over the front, you can find ten tiny LEDs displaying the status for the WAN and LAN ports, energy, wireless bands, and USB device connections. When a link is energetic and steady, the LEDs shine a good blue. The trunk panel offers four Gigabit LAN ports and a WAN slot, one USB 2.0 port, and the USB 3.0 slot. The USB ports assistance not merely USB exterior drives, but additionally printers and 3G/4G cellular broadband devices which you can use for link failover.

Performance

Powered by 5th era Wi-Fi (5G Wi-Fi), the brand new 802.11ac chipset provides RT-AC68P super-fast Gigabit wifi speeds. Also, RT-AC68P utilizes TurboQAM™ technologies to update 2.4G Wi-Fi, even more, to provide you with unprecedented speeds. At 2.4 GHz, it’s 33% faster than generic wireless-N900 routers, achieving 600 Mbps, while on the 5 GHz band it blazes to 1300 Mbps – or triple 802.11n prices. That’s 1900 Mbps of concurrent cellular power!

The ASUS RT-AC68P includes a dual-core processor that eliminates the performance drops that plague other routers. So actually on the busiest house networks, HD movie streaming is definitely easy, the latency reduced for online video gaming and VoIP phone calls, and file downloads should never be interrupted.

Delivering 2.4GHz and 5GHz concurrent bands at around 300Mbps and 867Mbps, respectively, the RT-AC68P includes a combined complete bandwidth as high as 1167Mbps. Perform basic jobs like Internet browsing and document downloading on the two 2.4GHz bands, while simultaneously allowing several products to stream completely HD or assistance online gaming along with other bandwidth-demanding programs smoothly about the clearer 5GHz band.
