    I'm thinking about buying that USB-N66. It should probably stream a whole lot better than my old wl-500w

    I ment the EA-N66, since that one has an ethernet port

    RT-N65U USB 3.0 Dual-Band Wireless-N750 Gigabit Router

    ASUS reveals the RT-N65U USB 3.0 Dual-Band Wireless-N750 Gigabit Router

    Dedicated dual-processor design maximizes networking bandwidth for lag-free HD content streaming and multiplayer gaming

    Taipei, Taiwan (June 4, 2012) ― the ASUS RT-N65U USB 3.0 dual-band wireless-N750 Gigabit router offers consumers an attractive and
    powerful networking device, maintaining the uniquely artistic black diamond design previously seen on ASUS routers such as the RT-N56U.
    It utilizes dual processors to optimize dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz throughput, and ships with twin USB 3.0 ports to enable easy device connectivity
    and flexible usage as a server. Its hardware NAT further accelerates Gigabit Ethernet performance, and the entire package is made readily
    accessible to users via the exclusive ASUSWRT dashboard interface.

    Unique dual-processor network enhancement

    The RT-N65U improves network performance for smoother and more satisfying online experiences. Using a powerful yet efficient
    dual-processor System on a Chip (SoC) architecture, it dedicates a CPU to each of its operating bands, clocked at 2.4GHz and 5GHz.
    This allows the two bands to reach their maximum throughput, unlike single-CPU designs, where compute power has to be shared.
    Combined, the two bands offer up to 750Mbps in bandwidth, with highly efficient resource management. Users can take advantage
    of the less crowded and cleaner 5GHz band for high-traffic tasks such as HD streaming and online gaming, while the standard 2.4GHz
    band easily handles more routine applications, including web browsing, social networking, and emailing.

    Better sharing and productivity with SuperSpeed USB 3.0

    ASUS includes two USB 3.0 ports on the RT-N65U, instantly turning the router into a multi-function server. Users can apply it as an FTP,
    Samba, UPnP AV, and printer server, making better use of resources by sharing across different devices. The router can download content
    directly to USB storage with no PC required, helping users get more done simultaneously with improved multitasking and time savings.
    The RT-N65U is also fully DLNA-certified, and can be used as a foundation for a fast home entertainment setup.

    Gigabit networking with hardware NAT

    Onboard hardware NAT IP address resolution and packet control helps in achieving better Gigabit Ethernet performance, with WAN to LAN
    throughput two to five times greater than that provided by Gigabit routers that employ software NAT.

    Power functions and easy management

    As with other recent ASUS routers, the exclusive ASUSWRT dashboard interface offers streamlined setup with just a few steps, allowing
    users to get online quickly and hassle-free. It also provides extensive network monitoring and control, all with an intuitive graphical design
    that can be learned in minutes. Client management and one-click updates are also included, alongside several ASUS applications such as
    VPN Server, Download Master (24-hour downloading even post-shutdown), parental controls, guest networks, and 3G connection sharing.

    This should be the processor used:

    don't think so, as it's placed behind the RT-XX66U Routers (optical and pricewise)
    RT-N66U TomatoUSB 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-135 K26AC USB AIO-64K running Entware-NG

    I thought the same way, but i cannot see any other dual-core SoC with USB 3.0 support

    BCM4708x => 800MHZ
    BCM5301x => 1GHZ

    It may not be Broadcom based, like RT-N56U
