The RT-AC66U router introduced today by ASUS at Computex isn't the first 802.11ac spec'd high speed wireless box we've seen, but it is the first from this company. Decked out in the Black Diamond design we've become accustomed to, it combines 2.4GHz and 5GHz bandwidth to sling data at up to 1.75Gbps. We've got a few more pics of it in the gallery below and specific details on ASUS' wireless technology from the press release after the break, although there's no price or release date mentioned.

ASUS RT-AC66U router
The ASUS RT-AC66U router integrates dual-band Gigabit wireless with fifth generation
802.11ac Wi-Fi technology, also known as 5G WiFi, which enables speeds up to three times
faster than existing 802.11n. As one of the first routers to achieve this, it tops Gigabit wireless
requirements with a combined 2.4GHz/5GHz bandwidth of 1.75Gbps. This massive data
rate makes it an excellent high speed router for demanding online applications, coupled
with exclusive ASUS AiRadar signal amplification and shaping technology. Easy ASUSWRT
setup, multiple SSIDs, and IPv6 support further enhance networking, while strong USB-based
capabilities turn the RT-AC66U into a 3G, FTP, DLNA, and printer server for genuine multi-
role functionality.
