  • hi, nice vid! ^^ is it possible to have both dual-WAN (load balancing) and Ai-Protection running simultaneously?

  • I bought my parents one 4 years ago. One year ago one the WAN port failed (I think due to lightning nearby) so I used failover to switch it to another port. About 2 weeks ago, it finally packed-up completely. The 2.4ghz light went out and it broadcasts wirelessly on 5g and 2.4g but will not actually allow anything to connect. It still works through the cable but what good is that. Considering it offered the failover and carried on for another year on half it's guts, I can't really complain.

  • I bought two of this router (actually its older iteration RT-AC1900P) about a year ago when I switched from Spectrum to Verizon Fios gigabit. Luckily, I got this for cheap and I struck gold when I found out ASUS rolled out AiMesh feature to this already old router, I get (almost) a full gigabit internet speed and get a automatically managed mesh network in my home although I did run an ethernet wire for backhaul, which technically makes it an access point but I don't have to tweak the settings every now and then and devices handoff seamlessly. I am very impressed by the level of support ASUS gave this product throughout its lifetime after reading numerous reviews that were already 4+ years old when I bought the routers. ASUS still surprises me to this day with new features every time there is a firmware update. Best purchase ever.

  • Is this router still relevant in 2020. Also im gonna add a removable pendrive on to this ( that i will remove and plug in daily ) , and use it as a little samba/ftp server. My question is will i have to always repeatedly add ( whenever i remove and plug back in ) the samba/server settings for the drive and access rights or does the router remember these settings ? Thanks you so much

  • You seem to be an expert at this. Can you help me with my issue? For some reason, my speed only maxes out at 300mbp. I'm using RT-ax88u primary and RT-ax58 (two) with mesh setup. Tell me what happened to my speed?

  • I agree with Behfor.  It is a great long lasting product.  You can still buy it new!.  I bought the ASUS DSL-AC68R in Feb 2015 to use with ADSL2+.  Still use it 5 years later. Current FW version is 384_81140, with DSL FW ver 1.0.4.9.  I liked the comprehensive feature set it had, compared to the different brands we used at work and friends used at home. It had an easy to navigate GUI, with good help menus.  Easy to set up in a Primary/Secondary WAN mode.  Currently pending the install of FTTC NBN internet in Australia, I use a TP-Link TL-MR3020 portable router in the 3G/4G mode, with a data SIM USB dongle taped to the window, connected to the Ethernet Port 4 on the ASUS as a backup Secondary WAN, with the ADSL as the Primary WAN.  I use both failover and failback.  My speeds on the ADSL on a good day with no "line noise” is 12/0.75 Mbps and on the secondary WAN is 35/10Mbps.  Great for my working at home situation! It’s great to have a backup, that is seamless.  As long as the 4G data plan isn’t swallowed up$.  Never experienced the heating effects others seem to have. Mine is always cool to touch.  Have successfully used the Adaptive QOS to limit BW to certain PC’s when guests shared the internet access over months.  Has a good spectrum graph of the ADSL SNR and the carrier bits per carrier. Not so important now in this NBN world! 
    The LAN DHCP server allows assigning up to 64 static IP’s. 
    The Wireless MAC Filter is great to harden the network.  Has a good Trend Micro AIProtection as a first line of defence against internet threats.
    The traffic analyser is great.  The Network Map, Client Tx/Rx rates and access times are also good to monitor clients.  I work in the space industry and will prefer quality over price. All in all a well made product.  As mentioned you can still buy it new.

  • i agree with you , unfortunately mine was not enough for the wife and 6 kids all stuck together, so i got me a new one, and i've been trying over and over to setup the repeater mode with zero success, it connects, but i get nothing… i tried with two other routers and it works, just not with the RT=AC68….

  • I have three of these routers, one on each floor of my house. Two are set up with AI Mesh and connected to the third one, which assigns IP adresses, via ethernet. I hope that when I get ready to replace them, Asus is still making products as great as the RT-AC68U.

  • Bought my ASUS RT-AC68U back in July 2014, still using it today running Merlin firmware. It has over 20 devices connected to it at any one time running my fully smart home. Possibly the best tech purchase I have ever made, there are not too many things that will last nearly 6 years, still operate perfectly, and have not been superseded by more advanced technology.

  • I have a 200/20 internet connection and a 2,200 square foot house that is one level. Would this be a good router for me?

  • Honestly, we are simply days away from 2020 and I've been happily using the xDSL version of this (DSL-AC68U) in Australia now for 5-6 years and it has been fantastic during my transition from ADSL2+ to fiber to the distribution point.

    The features and functionality have always gonr above and beyond what I expected from it, and my only gripe with it, the one thing I think it would've benefit from over all these years is either the second usb port like it's router only brethren, or active cooling inside the chassis. In any case, I plan on putting a laptop cooler under mine and my external hard drive at some point

  • I bought this router to install VPN after listening to your video. My Linksys had crapped out after only two months. This Asus is great! Not only to get my American shows now, but I get good connectivity back in my isolated office which wasn't happening with my Linksys. Asus customer service was pretty good too.

  • I have the 66u and while it has probably been the longest lasting wireless router I have ever owned, over the past year it seems it just occasionally stops working as a wirelsss device. Any devices connected over ethernet work but I cant access the web interface and you cant connect wireless devices even though the ssids are broadcasting. considering flashing ddwrt. I cant consistently get it to work when it happens. Because a single power cycle doesn't seem to fix the problem. FWIW I'm using it as an AP because we have pfsense on a dedicated pc.

  • I'm quite satisfied with this router. Although I thought the 5GHz signal would be a bit stronger on the second floor. Nevertheless, the signal is very stable and so is the wifi connection. I guess that's all what counts.

  • Greetings! Great videos! Very concise and informative. I was watching your videos on setting up a Zosi NVR and, lo and behold, I see that you have a lot of networking videos. I kind of expected this. What I did NOT expect to see was that you are using the exact same router that I am! Mine is just an updated model but, it is still the same. That was a very nice surprise! I will be watching more of your videos as I have numerous routers, switches and DVRs/NVRs. I just wanted to say thank you for your very helpful and well made videos. Cheers!

  • I bought ASUS RT-AC55U back in June of 2015 and it still runs like a champ and receive updates regularly, one update came like few days ago, you can not beat the support Asus provides to its routers. It is a two story house but somehow the signal strength is adequate and I watch 4K videos of Amazon Video and Netflix and the my kids do online games. I thought today of upgrading to RT-AC68U but I never had any problems with my routers in terms of speed or stability or reliability so I decided to save myself USD125 and leave the upgrade for another time…

  • Hello my dear friend, i need your help. I have Asus RT-N66U router with Merlin firmware installed on it. My issue is it gets too much hot with temperature of 60℃. Is it fine or i should purchase a new Asus router ? There's no performance issue with router. But at this temperature i am worried it might damage my 2TB USB hard drive, connected to router. Will it ? Waiting for your reply.

  • I've been in love, yes I said love, with this router since installing it in early 2014. It covers my 3300 SF home and even outside to the front driveway. There are a few spots of weak coverage down in my workshop, which is three floors below the location of the router. I'm expecting delivery of a second AC68U tomorrow so I can create a AiMesh network. This device is one of those items that the manufacturer went way overboard making a solid dependable unit that hit all the right points, something extremely rare in today's marketplace. And thanks for your videos on AiMesh, looks to an easy and worthwhile upgrade.

  • These are pretty cheap now and I just switched providers and threw down on one of these babies. I know it's older but who cares I already own 2 asus lyra trios so it's good to know my new setup will have full mesh support.

  • Nice. I currently own an RT-AC87U because I got it for cheap. If it wasn't for that, I'd be using my 68U. Gave the RT-AC68U to my father, to replace his bad Netgear N router.
