Speed Up Your Wireless Network With Asus RT-AC66U

December 19, 2012

Asus RT-66U Wireless RouterI think back a few years ago when it was a big deal to have a wireless network, any wireless network. Now it seems as if any electronic device you buy will have wireless capabilities. When our office first got wireless, the main Internet connection was a shared dial-up line. Yes, it was painfully slow!

Now we have decent service, but still nowhere near as fast as many since we don’t have choices. Even though the pipe into the office is slow, it is important to have a fast wireless network if files are being shared between devices. Most any wireless network can keep up with data coming from the Internet.

We upgraded our wireless network to the Asus RT-N56U router around a year ago. It is still going strong and I don’t feel the need to upgrade anytime soon. Over the summer I told you about the Asus RT-N66U router that upgraded what we have with better speed and much better antennae.

One more upgrade has come in the form as the Asus RT-AC66U wireless router. It has the external antennae as in the previous version but upgrades the wireless technology to the latest AC standard. Just remember you only get the blazing speed of the AC standard when devices on both ends are AC capable. Even so, it does a great job with the older N standard and even older standards.

It isn’t the cheapest router, but it is one of the most powerful and should serve you well for several years. If your current router is showing its age, the Asus RT-AC66U would be a great choice for an upgrade.
