    Arrow New Asus RT-N66U Router

    RT-N66U
    Ultra Fast Dual-band Gigabit Router




    Dual-band 5GHZ and 2.4GHZ speeds up to 450Mbps concurrently
    Industry-leading CPU speeds at 600Mhz
    Powerful online multitasking at up to 300,000 data sessions
    Multi-funcionality with twin USB ports

    Network Standard - IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n up to 450MBps
    Ethernet Port - WAN x 1, LAN x 4 RJ-45 for 10/100/1000 Base T
    Memory - 32MB Flash and 1GB DDR2 RAM

    The rest you can see it at:

    With this specs i really hope that will be a BROADCOM chip

    Update:

    I think i found it: http://www.broadcom.com/collateral/p...003-PB00-R.pdf or maybe not, this is a Network Processor and not a WLAN.

    It could be a Marvell 600Mhz cause Ralink fastest CPU is a RT3883 500Mhz, but lets wait to see it

    Update 2:

    Finally i found it, router will use BCM4706 processor and wireless BCM4331:

    I read this on another forum (http://tomatousb.org/forum/t-256301/asus-rt-n76u):
    =================
    I contacted Asus support to have more information about the RT-N76u and here is what they told me:
"I got information from sales team that RT-N76U just change the name to RT-N66U ..."

    yes well... they always mentioned a special gaming router... and this looks just like a gaming router
    600MHz is good news, hopefully it will actually be clocked at 600MHz and not lower due to stability issues like the RT-N16.

    Update:

    I think i found it: http://www.broadcom.com/collateral/p...003-PB00-R.pdf or maybe not, this is a Network Processor and not a WLAN.

    It's the SOC (system on chip) with central mips core.
    So what you get is what you see in the block diagram
    so it shows you, just as usual: some different busses and connectors, build in qos and tcam and even 2 VoIP channels.
    nothing wired or wireless yet

    That's a little weird from ASUS, RT-N76U => RT-N66U since they already announce it, but it could be. Since RT-N76U was Broadcom chip that means RT-N66U "has to be" Broadcom, i doubt its a real 600MHz cause they're chips are always underclocked so far, but 1GB RAM its really awesome

    Yes well... as far as you can clock it too 600MHz and it stays stable I'm ok with that
    1GB is going to be a difficult upgrade... since they probably use 2 memory chips, so...

    From Asus press release at CES 2011 (January 7, 2011):

    ==============
    The RT-N66U dual-band wireless router from ASUS brings to the fore a new generation of super-fast connectivity with up to 450Mbps per band simultaneously.

    This makes the RT-N66U the gamers choice, ...

    ...includes hardware NAT to alleviate overall system load by relieving the CPU of background netcode processing.

    the swedish user geraner, known for the unboxing video, shared his experiences with the webif.

    It seems that there are bugs, if you change the language to english...

    Thanks, the good part is that most of us will not use stock FW, so that's not a issue
