Michael,

Bad points:
This advertised as extremely easy to set up giving great flexibility in accessing your wifi settings go and control them with a user friendly interface. It is anything gets but that. After questions of passwords etc, eventully I gave up and reverted to my old wifi router. I purchased for simple ease of use. It is not easy as advertised.

Lance,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I ended up testing 5 routers before ending up with this one, simply because it did the job where all others failed. (It was half the price of the most expensive I tested.) Every other router failed to detect certain devices or failed to stream over a LAN. Ths router worked 100% on every device and its configurable interface made setting up the network a pleasure. ASUS support was also EXCELLENT! They could be easily contacted (on a normal phone number) and listened and understood some other points I wanted to know. (Every other make of router, including Netgear and Huawei support was either non-existent or kept hanging up.)
Bad points:
Cost is high at its current price. Cannot be more honest due to restrictions of review site.

Manufacturer's Description

Stream 4K movies, play lag-free games and get the best of your internet connection with the Asus DSL-AC68U Wireless Router.

AC speed
The Asus DSL-AC68U Router features a maximum data rate of 1900 Mbps, which is capable of delivering the fastest speeds possible from fibre-optic and high-speed broadband connections.

Perfect for streaming high-quality media, rapid downloads and online gaming, you can enjoy your favourite online media without worrying about lag or latency.

Dual-band
From smartphones and tablets to laptops and consoles, AC rated wireless allows you to connect an entire family’s web-connected gadgets at once without worrying about losing speed.

If you’re gaming or downloading large files, the Asus DSL-AC68U’s dual band feature is perfect. Essentially two routers in one, it allows you to connect high bandwidth devices to the performance oriented 5 GHz connection for a fast, dedicated connection unhindered by normal use.

For normal users, this is the ideal way to free up your internet connection for smooth everyday connectivity.

Wide coverage
Whether you’re in the same room as the router or working in an attic bedroom, you can receive optimal performance thanks to three antennas that deliver a wider ranging signal, dual CPUs that eliminate lag when the network is busy, and beamforming technology.

Rather than emitting an imprecise spherical signal, beamforming technology focuses the signal directly to your device. Great for keeping a stable connection on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, it ensures you stay connected throughout your home.

Easy to manage
This router features ASUSWRT, a simple to use interface for that gives new and seasoned users alike easy access to advanced features and comprehensive networking options.

From port forwarding and traffic management to IPv6 support and secure VPN access, you can setup your home network as you choose.

Wired connectivity
There are four Gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting your PCs, powerline kits, Smart TVs and more.

A USB 3.0 port supports file sharing from external hard drives and can used to network a printer or media streamer.

Enjoy the best of your high-speed internet connection with the Asus DSL-AC68U Wireless Router.
