Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Good when it works. Purchased the router back in July 2016, I used it for main router, with WiFi disabled for 4 months. For that time the router was flawless and fast, it performed great with VPN links. Couple of days ago I decided to disconnect my AP and start using the routers WiFi radios. Within two days I started having WiFi drops, one every couple of hours. When I go to the WiFi settings it shows channel 0, once the router is rebooted everything is good for couple of hours. Asus support was useless, stayed online for almost an hour and was told that the unit needs to be sent for repair, shipping is not covered, nor advanced replacement. When purchasing +$300 router, one would expect a bit better customer support and retention within the warranty period, isn't it?
Replacing a 3 year old Linksys that wasn't giving the performance I needed. Hadn't considered ASUS before but a friend swore by the performance. He was not wrong. It was very easy to setup and the performance is amazing. I was getting 9 - 10 Mbs from Comcast (paying for 50) and the old router based on Speedtest.net results. After installation and configuration I pegged the speed test at 119Mbs. The interface is very easy to use. Configuration is simple. The only challenge I had was the default IP to the router for management is not the standard 192.168.1.1 but rather the IP from the WAN. Additional bonus features that I had no idea the router had are the QoS features down to device/app/website levels and the embedded VPN server/client. I've never spent this much on a router before but now with everyone in the house having multiple devices and a bunch of IoT devices it was time for an upgrade. Worth every penny.
I ordered this router to replace a TP-LINK TP-WR841N which never really worked well. I intended to load DD-WRT on this product, but after receiving the RT-AC68U and using the factory firmware, I really liked it. So far I haven't found anything that it can't do. QoS, Print server, file server, DDNS, port forwarding, PnP, you name it, this does it! This has been rock solid too, no lockups, reboots or hangs while we are watching Netflix, playing an Xbox game, or have 10 friends over all using it at the same time. It also has the ability to setup multiple SSID's including a guest network with bandwidth graphs and controls. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this for a second.
