Excellent range, blazing performance
First, as always setup was very easy. I love that modern routers now force you to set up better security.
The range is approximately 10% better on the 2.4ghz band, and maybe 12-14% better on the 5ghz band measured using WIFI Analyzer on my S4 and Note 10.1.
Overall, I'm pleased and look forward to new firmware builds that improve the functionality.
Demonstrating all-round quality
With record-breaking 802.11ac results, along with the all-round quality of the RT-AC68U and advanced setup options, Asus deserves recommendation for power users. Although we wouldn't buy an Asus router just for the AiCloud feature, it's far from useless, and another string to the bow of the RT-AC68U, which is an all-round excellent networking product.
Benchmark wireless performance, Class leading USB speeds
Recently we've seen a number of manufacturers release follow-ups to their debut 802.11ac routers, but Asus is the only one so far to make a true generational step up. Virtually everything has been upgraded and the combination of blistering speed, smart new design, masses of functionality and far greater horsepower has raised the bar for the competition.
Blazing fast 5GHz band performance, Attractive design
ASUS products have typically commanded a premium and the RT-AC68U is, unfortunately, no different. Its list price of S$359 makes it one of the priciest routers in the market right now. But for the price, you do get a smart-looking router with blazing AC performance and rich features.
I got this router and like the other comments I was a little disappointed with range. I was just kind of dealing with it, it was still better then my netgear dual band router, but it didn't give me the coverage i was expecting. Amped Tech support contacted me and said they have addressed the issue with firmware upgrade. After the upgrade the range was much better!
Great router with tons of features
Overall the Amped Wireless R200000G High Power Dual Band Router is a great router with tons of features, a nice looking GUI, and solid wireless speeds. While Amped Wireless is marketing R200000G as an "Extended Range" device, we didn't experience a tremendous step-up in range over our other top-of-the-line routers.
Waned to like this router
Dual Band is not worth a +20% loss of speed for standard browsing.
Sidenote: I opened a help desk ticket and got the cut and paste answer of 'If you are having trouble with your wireless...'. Which had nothing to do with my issue, an obvious quick, no read response and haven't heard anything since I told them that. Poor service (over a week ago) but I never had to contact them with my 633
Good network storage performance
The router performance is excellent only in close ranges. When connected in the 2.4 GHz band the router offers a throughput speed of 61.52 Mbps which is the fastest among the dual band routers. With this speed, the router can transfer 500MB in about a minute. However the speed reduces with increase in distance. When the range is increased to about 100 feet the transfer speed reduces to 27.3 Mbps.
