With code “WIFI40” you get (surprise) $40 off this wifi device; bringing this down to just $59 with Free Shipping (it drops off at the very end).
But wait we can hear you screaming at the screen, I don’t use T-Mobile!
It’s okay; anyone can buy this from T-Mobile!
We’re going to turn you’re $59 router into this: An $150 Asus RT-68U!
T-Mobile didn’t invent a new router this is actually the same ASUS RT-AC68U selling Amazon for around $140-150
Still we’re Pocketables and you’re our readers (We ♥ you); we wouldn’t leave you going through some branded wifi box with your shiny new toys! We give you not just the stock firmware image; but links to lots of options so that you can exploit the true poor of this dual-core 1GHz ARM with Dual-Band (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz) 3×3 AC1900 Router:
- Official ASUS RT-68U Firmware
- Merlin Firmware for ASUS (Under Heavy Load)
- LTS (Long Term Service) fork of Asuswrt-Merlin
- Tomato FW by Shibby
- Advanced Tomato (a Tomato Fork)
- OpenWRT (don’t do this unless you know what a JTAG is)
Happy (Hacking) Thanksgiving! From Pocketables editor Ben C
