RP-AC68U is an AC1900-class dual-band range extender, with a 3-transmit, 4- receive (3x4) internal antenna array that delivers Wi-Fi speeds up to 1300 Mbps on the 5GHz frequency band and up to 600 Mbps on the 2.4GHz band, for a combined total of up to 1900 Mbps. It’s easy to install with its one-touch WPS button, and it features a high-speed USB 3.0 port that works with AiCloud to give you fast wireless access to files stored on a connected USB storage device. Five gigabit ports let you convert any wired network device, such as a game console or smart TV, to work wirelessly. Smart status LEDs give you all the information you need to know, at a glance.
The RP-AC68U wireless range extender has powerful internal MIMO antennas that help to eliminate signal dead zones and improve the coverage of any existing wireless router. It works as a range extender, which means it can extend wireless networking to every corner of the home — even to those difficult, hard-to-reach spots. With blindingly-fast 802.11ac speeds up to 1900 Mbps, it’s ideal for extending your existing 802.11ac Wi-Fi network. This ensures reliable high-speed internet coverage everywhere for devices such as notebooks, tablets, smartphones, game consoles and smart TVs.
Powered by 802.11ac technology, RP-AC68U delivers ultra-fast wireless-AC speeds up to 1300Mbps on the 5GHz band and 600Mbps on the 2.4GHz band — that’s a combined total of 1900Mbps! This high-performance wireless lets you enjoy ultra-smooth online gaming, snappier web surfing and other bandwidth-hungry tasks without a wired connection.
RP-AC68U wireless repeater installation doesn’t require a CD or even a mouse and keyboard. Simply press the WPS buttons on RP-AC68U and your router, and setup is complete. Optimized performance is assured for a seamless and smooth internet experience. For advanced settings, you can connect RP-AC68U to a PC via an Ethernet cable and access the web-based configuration menu directly, with no disc or app needed. You can even set it up wirelessly from a tablet or smartphone.
For best results, RP-AC68U needs to be within range of a stable router signal, and should be placed between the router and the location where you need better wireless coverage. RP-AC68U works best when it is receiving a strong wireless signal from the router — you can check this by using the signal strength indicator on the back panel.
Connect USB storage to the USB 3.0 port and turn RP-AC68U into a personal cloud server with ASUS AiCloud, for accessing and streaming content anywhere. AiCloud is a free app for iOS and Android™ devices, and works with RP-AC68U to give you the ultimate mobile flexibility.
In Media Bridge mode, RP-AC68U adds Wi-Fi to any Ethernet-enabled device, including smart TVs, multimedia players, game consoles and PCs. Back-panel status LEDs give you an at-a-glance signal-strength indication for both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands.
RP-AC68U can add a fast and stable 5GHz network to a single band 2.4GHz router, upgrading it to 1300 Mbps speeds for ultra-smooth online gaming, 4K UHD video streaming and speedier downloading. For an existing 5GHz network, RP-AC68U adds an extra 5GHz network so you can connect even more devices for even greater wireless multitasking.
ASUS ExpressWay uses the dual-band capability of RP-AC68U to create a super-efficient connection with improved performance and reliability. In normal mode, RP-AC68U uses the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands simultaneously for connecting to devices, giving wide compatibility with devices and routers. As long as at least one device — or your router — supports 5GHz operation, ExpressWay can dedicate one band for connecting to the router and the other band for connecting to the device. This gives you a great performance boost for data-intensive tasks such as HD video streaming or online gaming, and also reduces the chance of losing the connection due to interference.
With our hassle-free
Roaming Assist technology, you never have to switch connections manually
between RP-AC68U and your ASUS router as you move around your home. Once you
enable this function, your device will connect automatically to the strongest
Wi-Fi signal, whether it’s from the router or the repeater. This ensures that
you always get a reliable
connection wherever you are in the house.
The effectiveness of the Roaming Assist function varies according to environmental factors. This ASUS-exclusive function works only with ASUS routers.
