The ASUS RT-AC66U is a 5th gen dual-band Wi-Fi router, and the launch platform for the new ASUS AiCloud service. Its speed reaches 1.75Gbps, currently the fastest available, utilizing the Broadcom 802.11ac Wi-Fi controller and working in 2.4GHz and 5GHz. The 5GHz band supports up to 1.3Gbps, exceeding current Gigabit wired transmission and 3X faster than 802.11n. The RT-AC66U offers smooth lag-resistant multitasking and super-fast streaming, while ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connections via powerful amplification, offering future-proof optimized performance.
AiCloud offers a unified app for iOS and Android devices that turns the RT-AC66U into a personal cloud server, with easy connectivity to Windows PC, Mac, Linux machines, and all USB storage. Each account can sync with other AiCloud clients and public cloud products directly. All your content, files, and data can be accessed, synced, shared, and managed from almost any device – smartphones to desktops – wherever and whenever you’re online.
Whether you’re a tech-savvy enthusiast or a first-time user, the RT-AC66U is exceptionally easy to use with CD-free Quick Installation Setup (QIS) that lets you plug-n-surf right out of the box and connect PCs, smartphones, tablets, and other wireless devices quickly.

This is a great router for any network but performs even better if you have an AC network in the office or at home. It is easy to setup and the performance is excellent. With ASUS you know that you have quality and reliability. They are also known for keeping their firmware up to date.

This product just works! I have had netgear, lynksys, cisco, tplink routers and modems before and the Asus beats them hands down. Fantastic features. Highly recommended

What a fantastic router! A little pricey, but well worth it.
Asus's firmware is currently being updated regularly.
If the official firmware is not for you then Asus-wrt, DD-wrt and Tomato support this Broadcom wireless chipset and Soc.
Delivery was flawless as usual.

Great capability in one unit and easy to setup. It's a little pricy but it's worth the spend bearing in mind all the available features (NAS, VPN, 3G/4G, internet load balancing etc.)
