comment What is USB root hub?
@Torpido: not 3 chips, but 3 cores within the same chip (probably the southbridge chip in your case). Yes, they look to the operating system as if they were 3 separate chips.

comment CSMA between APs in same channel & different SSID?
This answer is wrong on so many levels, I do not even know where to start. So, starting from the beginning: an AP will not see another AP as interference if they are near enough, since it can read the packet headers (and has to, else it cannot know they are for the other AP!). "They figure it out" is hopelessly vague. I do not believe anyone uses the frequency-hopping from the original 802.11 standard anymore. And the MAC layer is shared between all the stations (AP or not), after all it is its purpose to negotiate access to the media (MAC = Media Access Control).
