I guess this router is not OK, waiting another to compare it. FTP could not pass 4mb/s... (vsftpd process is not used more than 10-20%)
The sensation i have here is that CPU is throttling, maybe heatsink is not mouted correctly, i really don't know...
Use InSSIder to see signal strenght please, bars are not so fidedign

Awesome, i found why FTP transfer rate was limited to 4mb/s, since im using a laptop with a 100MBIT NIC i knew perfectly that never could copy more than 10-11mb/s, the problem here was that samba could achieve that speed (10-11mb/s) but vsftpd couldn't, it was limited to 4mb/s, once i tested on a gigabit NIC i was able to copy 18mb/s.
Don't know why but vsftpd does not achieve maximum of 100MBIT transfer rate, if anyone try could assist to this novel

active or passive transfer?
RT-N66U TomatoUSB 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-105 K26 USB AIO-64K running Entware
lighttpd 126.96.36.199 php 5.4.5 eaccelerator sqlite

I have around 4 Mb/s with SAMBA and 6.5 Mb/s with NFS(TCP).
The condition in air is good and I have same results on both bands and with 20/40MHz of the wide.
I don't know why I can't get the better speed.
I can see 300 mbit/s and almost high level of signal.
But never see the speed higher that 6.5 Mb/s
My RT-N66U with Toastman f/w
and I'm using E2000 like bridge with Tomato connected to NMT via ethernet 100 full duplex
and I think I should have the speed close by 9-10 Mb/s... :-(
I never use RT-N66U with stock firmware and may be I will try it for to clear the situation.

It will happen the same, its not FW issue, my tests were via cable not wireless
I measured the wifi strenght with a nice test setup:
- Only 1 router turned on at a time
- Download a file via wifi from a pc
- Put the wifi client very far away (about 7m trough 3 walls) so hardly any signal is captured from the client
- Set the Wi-Spy up at 2 meters distance from the router
Le RT-N16 with oleg @ a whopping 400mW
Le RT-N66u with asus fw 188.8.131.52.90 @ only 40mW
Apart from the fact those mW don't really do much, the rt-n66u has about 5dBm more strenght
btw, I drew a yellow line trough the average line measured by the software... since that line is near to invisible in the scaled down version of the image I drew the yellow line.
so the yellow line is about the average +-1 dBm I guess
Somebody know how good Tomato support Gbit WAN and LAN with RT-N66U?
Did anybody the test of speed WAN or LAN with Tomato on RT-N66U?
P.S. I can't to find the reason why I can't to get the speed higher 10 Mb/s...
I'm not proffessional or expirienced user and looking for my mistakes with
NAS TS-119P+ ----- ETHERNET ------- RT-N66U -------- WiFi ---------- 2 PC and 3 laptops
NAS and Router have GigaBit Ethernet connections.
But even I try downlad any file from NAS and use all 5 computers via WiFi at ones
THE SPEED BETWEEN NAS AND ROUTER NOT HIGHER THAN 10 MB/S
But each of PC's or Laptops can do it with 3-6 MB/s or sum of all downloads should be higher and like I count about 20 MB/S !
I'm looking for bottleneck in my configuration.

Gonna do some testing
Yeah yeah but those tests/performances are with an External Antena ASUS EA-N66 (costs almost the same as router)
I would like to see the USB performance over 20MB/s read / write loooooool
I have comment the 3rd time on they're mural LOL
"Let's go ahead" then

What do you think about GIGABIT ETHERNET to 450mbps WiFI?
P.S. I never use external HDD with USB connection with router, because I have NAS with gigabit ethernet.
Unfortunately nobody give me the clear information about the own results of tests.
Only bla-bla-bla and information from Google from other same theoretics :-)
