    They're not quite the same. Most visibly, they both have two USB ports, but the AC66U_B1 has one on the front, while the AC1750 has them both on the back. The B1's front port is USB 3.0, while both ports on the 1750 are USB 2.0.

    They have slightly different CPUs, but they're similar enough that they can run the same firmware. I don't know if they have the same wifi chip, but they seem to be at least nearly identical and should provide nearly identical performance.
