    There is no doubt about it, it says "32MB Flash and 2Gb DDR2 RAM"

    RT-N57U has awesome specs, Ubicom CPU up to 800MHZ (12 multithreaded tCPUs) and DDR3 :-D

    Maybe that's why USB 3.0 ports, this CPU should be really fast, but i doubt it bypass USB 2.0 speeds.

    you are quite right, it says Gb (small b).
    which would suggest that it's 2Gigabit ddr2 memory -> 256MegaByte. I'd call it confirmed

    hmm... sounds like the 57U is a lot better than the 66U
    those 12 tCPU's sound an awefull lot like intels hyperthreading technology: Split up the CPU in multiple hardware regulated threads.
    it even has PWM

    I'm not even sure what I want now anymore

    scroll down for the router part: http://translate.google.nl/translate...%2F%3Fp%3D1277

    I think the choice depends on what each router support, i prefeer a slower router but with 3rd party support, like Oleg, DD-WRT, Openwrt, Tomato, others... I think RT-N57U (Ubicom) is supported by Openwrt so thats good news cause it might support others too...

    true...
    I'd still like a bad ass router tho
    but if I'd have to miss oleg fw it would be hard. Alltho tomato is quite nice as well.

    Wireless Performance 600MBps and Routing Performance 2GBps UoouW

    It was tested on OpenWRT, i think i will have RT-N57U

    Impressive specs of this Ubicom product!

    I moved to a new house with two floors where I can finally have my IT cabinet. I went for a modular network setup that is, no integrated solution like router+switch+wireless. I bought Ubiquiti Routerstation Pro (OpenWRT), Ubiquiti Unifi (quite discrete PoE access point) and a 16-ports Gbit switch. My setup is that the router is working as such, just routing traffic between WAN, VLAN1 (home) and VLAN2 (DMZ). The router has 4 ports. I am planing using the fourth port for high demanding bandwidth applications like streaming video/TV, etc. The switch has already seven hosts connected to it (NAS, Squeezebox, TV, media player, Ubiquiti Unifi, computers, etc).

    I have to confess everything is working really smooth and fast. Very happy with the solution!

    I use my old Asus WL-500p just as a printer server so far (wireless off). I am not sure yet if I want to use it also as wireless access point with WDS to cover some small shadows.

    Both, WL-500gP and Routerstation PRO are using latest OpenWRT (backfire).

    I guess the matter of having USB3.0 on a device even when the device would not reach the maximum speed according to the standard has rather much to do with single or multiple transaction translator on USB hubs (Single TT Or Multi TT http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...ogy,677-3.html).

    Wow, nice setup Tamadite
    you're going for the real performance routers now aren't you?

    I'm not really getting where you're going at...
    This article is from 2003, and trust me. These days every hub is multiTT, well... maybe not the really cheap ones from china, but how many people have those?

    It pretty clearly says "8 MB flash and 128 MB DDR2 RAM". Ctrl+mousewheel is your friend.

    Edit: Oops, that's for the RT-N56U.
