ASUS debuts the RP-AC68U network repeater

The Taiwanese ASUS is known for its Republic of Gamers (ROG) hardware line but what is gaming with no proper networking equipment? That is why the Taiwanese company has announced a new repeater that has been designed specifically for gamers.

The new repeater is called RP-AC68U and takes the top position among all ASUS 802.11ac-enabled Wi-Fi network devices. The repeater comes housed in an elegant chassis and features four high-performance antennas (3 transmit and 4 receive) that allow users to extend an existing Wi-Fi network with ultra-fast speeds of up to 1900 Mbps. In addition to this the ASUS RP-AC68U comes with a USB 3.0 port that can be used for connecting devices. The repeater has five Gigabit Ethernet ports too that add great flexibility when connecting devices through cables. The RP-AC68U can be used as an access point too that can add Wi-Fi capabilities to a wired network too. Best of all, the ASUS RP-AC68U gaming repeater can be all set up with no hassle – just press the WPS button on both the repeater and the router you use and this is it! You don’t even need a CD or a computer to do this.

Unfortunately there’s no information on when the ASUS RP-AC68U will be in stores or how much it will cost.
