Declare Independence from Slow Wi-Fi with This Discounted AC Router

The deals don't stop just because it's a holiday, and today's best is this powerful 802.11 AC router from ASUS, on sale today for $40 off.

As far as routers go, $180 still qualifies as pretty expensive, but this is one product category where you really do get what you pay for. The ASUS RT-AC68U is the follow-up to the insanely popular AC66U, and it takes the same successful formula, but adds a tweaked design, speedier throughput, and even a USB 3.0 port for faster external storage. Reviewers who have used both models note that range seems to be improved as well, which is always a plus. In short, this router should satisfy your home networking needs for years to come.

Amazon has never had this one cheaper than $199, and today's price is only valid today, or until sold out. So go buy it right now, and then enjoy your holiday. [ASUS RT-AC68U Router, $180]
