    Iam using Asus RT-N66U for my home network and iam very happy with it, iam using merlin firmware. Yesterday i bought same router for my office network, to upgrade my old router, but now on the box its written RT-N66U C1 manufacture date 2017, and i cant find no information about this revision. Can you help me with this, can i upgrade it with merlin or other third party firmware, or should i send it back to shop for refund?

    The FCC ID is probably on the back of the box (not the white label on the side).

    I saw this new router type show up in the code. Based on how it being grouped/tested, a guess is that it may be a single core ARM based router.
    Code:
    if(odmpid == "RT-AC66U_B1" || odmpid == "RT-AC1750_B1" || odmpid == "RT-N66U_C1" || odmpid == "RT-AC1900U")
