2.Has dual-band technology
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

Dual-band devices can transmit data quickly on the newest 5GHz band, using recent standards (eg. 802.11n, 802.11ac). They can also use the older 2.4GHz band if needed.

3.Has fast 802.11ac WiFi connection
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.

4.has an external memory slot

The antennas can be removed if they are not needed, or replaced with longer ones if necessary.

Security

1.Has automatic IP
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

Automatic IP allows a local area network (LAN) computer to give itself a unique IP address when Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is unavailable to do so.

2.Has a built-in network firewall
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

3.Has port filtering
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

Port filtering is a type of access control where access to certain Internet service are assigned to users using port numbers. This can increase security as well as restricting Internet usage.

4.Has a URL filter
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

URL filters are particularly useful if you want to allow different web access depending on the time of day, for instance allowing employees to use personal email outside of working hours.

5.Has a static IP address
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

Static IP addresses remain consistent on each connection. This means the IP address can be used to allow remote access/configuration. Most home devices have a dynamic IP address, whereas larger companies usually use a static IP address.

6.Has MAC address filtering
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

This is a security feature in which network access is granted to devices based on their unique MAC address. It can provide increased security, but it can be a risk if the user loses the device.

Features

1.Is DLNA certified
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

All DLNA certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.

2.Has QoS
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

With (QoS) Quality of Service, you can optimise performance by deciding which traffic to prioritise when a bottleneck occurs. You can decide which traffic is important based on things like IP address and type of Internet service.

3.Has Universal Plug n Play
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

Universal Plug n Play (UPnP) is a set of networking protocols that permits networked devices, such as PCs, printers, Internet gateways, Wi-Fi access points and mobile devices to find each other and exchange information on the network.

4.IPv6 enabled
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol. IPv6 operates as a separate network to IPv4, and has the capacity for more IP addresses and more features.

5.Has dynamic routing
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

Dynamic routing is useful if you need to configure several routers, as they can automatically find network destinations and best routes, as well as sharing information between routers. They can reroute automatically if there is a fault somewhere.

6.Network Time Protocol enabled
Amped Wireless RTA15
Asus RT-AC56U

With Network Time Protocol (NTP) you can ensure that devices across a network display the exact same time and date, using UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).
