Asus has announced its latest home router at CES 2021. The RT-AX68U is rated for the up-to-date Wi-Fi 6 standard, and the user burden, bandwidth and potential capacity for speed it entails.
The RT-AX68U router supports both the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz radio bands, which allows for a wide range of smart devices to be easily connected and have a stable connection to the router. This router offers a maximum data transfer speed of up to 2,700 Mbps with WiFi 6.
The router has a tall and slim vertical design, finished in a "premium" style with a special textured coating. It features three external antennas, four spare Ethernet LAN ports, and two USB ports for connecting printers and other peripherals, one USB 2.0 and the other USB 3.0. If you're bored with black, the Asus landing page for the router teases an albino, white-bodied version, too.
The RT-AX68U features ASUS's Ai Mesh and Ai Protection, and Ai Mesh allows users to create a mesh WiFi using any other ASUS router that also offers support for Ai Mesh. Ai Protection has a web filter that, when enabled, adds a layer of web filtering above the router's firewall.
Pricing and availability are not clear yet.
