More about asus claims world fastest router ac68u
  1. Whenever I hear someone, anyone, claim world's fastest, I hear world's most unstable.
  2. With dual core and USB3.0, it seems a lot better than the RT-AC66U. I'm planning to give it a try. I just hope that their USB3 does really perform at close to spec of 5Gb/s.
  3. The only thing I've ever experienced ASUS to be fastest with is abandoning support for devices.
  4. Linksys can claim all they want, one look at their AC1900 and its pathetically short antennas is enough. I know what Linksys non-WRT54 routers are like, they are junk. Asus ones, on the other hand, are amazing. Too bad I can't justify buying a $250 router, the specs look amazing. I'd rather have Asus build an affordable $80 or so router with maybe "only" 150-300 Mbps WiFi but gigabit LAN - that seems to be available only on extremely expensive $150+ models, sadly, and IMO, it's more interesting and useful than "fast" WiFi.
  5. my customers run the AC1750 w/ DD-WRT. The thing is a beast and coverage is great. I am not sure how beneficial USB 3.0 support is. Sure you can hook it to a nas, but who cares? NETWORK attached storgage...keyword...NETWORK
  6. I just bought the RT-AC66U and replaced the antennas with 9 dbi ones, i cna pick up my wifi anywhere in my house, yard, or neighbors house/yard. and with a good external antenna i can pick it up 6 houses down and connect/use my network
  7. The USB 3 port is not a big deal -- really all marketing, the USB 2.0 outperforms it on the AC68U but it has the fastest USB on a router yet. Take a look at the first review of the AC68U HERE.
  8. ASUS, notorious for lackluster customer support and insanely lack of product testing (except for most motherboards).
    I bet this is one of the crap they screw up in every each way.
    Well, for those suckers who are going to buy this, better luck with DD-WRT aftermarket firmware.
  9. it's a consumer grade product.. yet claims "world's fastest" imagine the what routers on enterprise.

    I have a Asus RT-AC66U and I can say its the most stable router I have used recently. Had to replace my DLink that had issues with Outlook and Lync.

    I am also very impressed at the power their stock firmware gives. Its a very powerful little router capable of a lot of great things.

    The best you can expect is about 4Gbps since rated is max throughput without the drop off in encoding which is 8b/10b for USB.

    Still its faster than a wired 1Gbps link, or even the 802.11ac max of 1.3Gbps, until 10Gbps routers become affordable as well as 10Gbps NICs become standard in systems which will be a while.
