The design of the RT-AX68U router is considerably different, and this router features a vertical design. This design has the WiFi antennas on the top of the module and pointed upwards instead of outward. This new design minimizes the footprint of this router, allowing for more space on your desk. This smaller footprint is perfect for a home office.

This router 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. This router also offers support for Ai Protection, and this technology has a web filter that, when enabled, adds a layer of web filtering above the router’s firewall.

The Ai Mesh technology allows for much wider coverage by using another ASUS router to an anchor. This is ideal for a larger house or apartment with the modem and router in a less than opportune location.

While the RT-AX68U router has not had its official price listed, ASUS has stated that they are targeting a sub-$100 price point for this router. This will keep this router affordable for users looking to utilize the Ai Mesh technology or affordable for single router homes.
