PRESS RELEASE

World's fastest high-end wireless modem router offers users 802.11ac speeds of up to 1300Mbit/s plus best-in-class 600Mbit/s 802.11n performance 

Taipei, Taiwan (11th September, 2014) - ASUS today announced the DSL-AC68U AC1900 Dual-Band ADSL/VDSL Modem Router, a router featuring next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi with a combined dual-band bandwidth of 1900Mbit/s.

DSL-AC68U is the fastest modem router in the world, providing speeds of 1300Mbit/s for 802.11ac at 5GHz and 600Mbit/s for 802.11n at 2.4GHz. A dual-purpose standalone wireless router and a DSL modem router in a single space-saving device, DSL-AC68U also features dual wide-area network (WAN) support thanks to the inclusion of both a DSL port and a switchable WAN/LAN port.

Compatible with ADSL, ADSL2/2+, VDSL2, fiber and cable services, the high-end DSL-AC68U provides a future-proof home networking solution. With a sleek upright design and USB 3.0 support, the DSL-AC68U delivers a perfect balance of performance and manageability for busy home networks that require everything from online gaming to HD video streaming.

Intelligent technology for outstanding performance

DSL-AC68U uses three external antennas to boost Wi-Fi coverage to the next level, so you can enjoy lag-free gaming and streaming almost anywhere around the house. ASUS AiRadar with universal beamforming technology intelligently enhances Wi-Fi stability, and the high power design improves coverage by up to 150% compared to standard routers. Most importantly, the universal beamforming technology brings improvements in signal strength and performance even to older 802.11a/b/g/n clients.

Powered by two dedicated CPUs, one each for wired and wireless connections, the DSL-AC68U eliminates performance drops that plague other routers in heavily-used networks. Dual CPUs also help maximize both range and stability, and ensure that HD video streaming is always smooth even on the busiest home networks. Additionally, latency is kept low for optimum online gaming and VoIP calls, and file downloads are never interrupted. 

Easy setup, plus the convenience of AiCloud

The DSL-AC68U has a USB 3.0 port - up to ten times faster than USB 2.0 - for sharing files, printers and 3G/4G modems. In combination with the exclusive ASUS AiCloud, DSL-AC68U transforms a home network into a personal cloud for easy streaming and sharing to smartphones, PCs, and tablets.

The easy-to-use ASUSWRT graphical user interface unlocks the power of the DSL-AC68U giving robust control to optimize your network for you. Setup takes just 30 seconds, and the intuitive interface means even network newbies can enjoy its sophisticated features such as traffic monitoring and Quality of Service (QoS) bandwidth management, while power users will love its IPv6 support, multiple wireless SSIDs and secure VPN access.
