Quickly and easily extend the reach of your existing wireless network with the RP-AC68U AC1900 Wi-Fi Repeater from ASUS. With support for both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies, this dual-band repeater allows users to connected to the less congested, faster 5 GHz frequency for tasks such as transferring large files, streaming HD content, and more. This network repeater also supports the 802.11ac networking protocol, offering data transfer rates of up to 1900 Mbps.
Setup and configuration is simple thanks to the built-in smart LED signal indicator. This indicator helps to provide a visual as to the strength of the current Wi-Fi signal allowing for optimal positioning of the ASUS RP-AC68U. Once configured, users can begin accessing files from the cloud using ASUS AiCloud. Simply plug in a USB storage drive into the repeater's USB 3.0 port, and users throughout the network can access important files from anywhere on the network. Along with the single USB 3.0 port, Ethernet-enabled devices can be directly connected to the network via any of the five built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports.
Faster Wi-Fi that Goes Further
The RP-AC68U wireless repeater 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 repeater, which means it can extend wireless networking to every corner of the home – even to those difficult, hard-to-reach spots. With 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.
Fast Wireless Speeds
Powered by 802.11ac technology, the RP-AC68U delivers ultra-fast wireless-AC speeds up to 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz band and 600 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band – that's a combined total of 1900 Mbps. This high-performance wireless lets you enjoy smooth online gaming, snappier web surfing, and other bandwidth-hungry tasks without a wired connection.
The 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. 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.
Signal Strength Indicator
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. The 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, allowing you to access and stream content anywhere. AiCloud is a free app for iOS and Android devices, and works with RP-AC68U to give you the ultimate mobile flexibility.
Media Bridge Mode
In Media Bridge mode, the 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 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands.
Access Point Mode
The RP-AC68U can add a fast and stable 5 GHz network to a single band 2.4 GHz router, upgrading it to 1300 Mbps speeds for smooth online gaming, UHD 4K video streaming, and speedier downloading. For an existing 5 GHz network, the RP-AC68U adds an extra 5 GHz network so you can connect even more devices for even greater wireless multitasking.
ASUS ExpressWay Boosts Performance
ASUS ExpressWay uses the dual-band capability of the RP-AC68U to create an efficient connection with improved performance and reliability. In normal mode, the RP-AC68U uses the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands simultaneously for connecting to devices, giving the widest compatibility with devices and routers. As long as at least one device – or your router – supports 5 GHz operation, ExpressWay can dedicate one band for connecting to the router and the other band for connecting to the device. This gives you a 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.
Roaming Assist for Stable Connections
With 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 the most reliable connection wherever you are in the house.
