I am considering purchasing two of these units....... using one as a bridge to take full advantage of the streaming capacity at both frequencies.


I don't know much about WIFI and networking so I have a question, if my DSL is only pumping out a fraction of what the 68U is capable of and I'm only going to use it to stream to one TV why would I want the 68U and not something closer (and cheaper) to what my DSL is capable of?


thanks

I bought two ASUS RT-AC68U routers and upgraded all my notebooks to 802.11ac. I absolutely recommend them. WiFi reaches all areas of my three story 3000sqf house. Many areas have 200mbps+ throughput, adjoining rooms get 800mbps connect (max client connect speed). Has been rock solid. I too stream Blu-Ray ISOs from my NAS without stutter or other issues. Apparently there's experimental support for USB 3.0 hubs. At some time I'll try hooking up my DAS devices (three 4-bay USB enclosures) to the router. In theory, I might be able to eliminate the NAS.
