    With a BCM4706 (MIPS), TomatoUSB should only need drivers for the BCM4360 to get it working (or maybe some modifications to support 1300mbps).
    With ARM architecture, it would probably be a ton of work to port it. And then you'd need to recompile the programs you want for ARM too (optware stuff).

    Would be nice if it did happen though (but unlikely).

    Nice one Omaga!

    but this:
    At a distance of 15 feet, the Asus registered the fastest Wi-Fi speed I've seen, scoring 339Mbps (or about 42MBps, close to the speed of a Gigabit Ethernet wired connection).
    What a joke, it's not even half of the gigabit speed
    Maybe in the near future we'll have 10gbit wireless and we'll be able to reach 500Mbps

    Asus RT-AC66U Reviewed

    ASUS RT-AC66U 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router Reviewed

    Routing Performance
    Code:
    Test Description  	RT-AC66U
    WAN - LAN 	        836 Mbps
    LAN - WAN 	        839 Mbps
    Total Simultaneous 	819 Mbps
    Maximum Connections 	30,069
    Firmware Version 	3.0.0.4.164
    Storage Performance
    Code:
     	 	ASUS  Buffalo  NETGEAR  ASUS
     	     RT-AC66U WZRD1800  R6300  RT-N66U
    FAT32 Write 	9.0 	7.3 	8.6 	10
    FAT32 Read 	9.9 	11.8 	10.2 	12
    NTFS Write 	13.5 	8.4 	11.3 	17
    NTFS Read 	9.4 	8.7 	10.3 	11


    All three use the same Broadcom BCM4706 CPU. At 256 MB, the AC66U has double the memory of the other two routers,
    but the same amount of flash. The same Broadcom BCM4331/BCM4360 radio SoCs are used in all three products.
    But the ASUS is the only one of the three to use dual-band external antennas vs. six internal single-band. This means the
    external circuitry connecting the radio SoCs to the antennas is different. It looks like the Skyworks 5 GHz amplifiers made it
    into ASUS' design. The BCM4360 5 GHz radio is toward the top of the photo; the BCM4331 2.4 GHz radio is toward the bottom.



    Removing the bottom plate revealed 128 MB of Samsung flash (K9F1G08U0D) and 2 MB of Macronix serial flash (25L1606E).
    There are no thermal pads connecting the plate to the board, so thermal connection must be made from board inner layers
    through the six metal standoffs that connect the plate to the board.
