2.Has dual-band technology
Apple Airport Express

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 DNS relay
Apple Airport Express

With DNS relay or DNS caching, the router stores the response to queries for a short time. This means that the same query will return a quicker response if repeated from another computer in the same network.

Antennas

1.external antennas

0

More antennas result in increased signal strength. External antennas can be repositioned in order to improve the signal, and replaced with a longer antenna if needed.

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has IPsec Passthrough
Apple Airport Express

You can enable IPsec Passthrough, to allow IPsec (IP Security Protocol) encrypted/authenticated data to pass through your router, enabling increased security.

3.Has L2TP Passthrough
Apple Airport Express

You can enable L2TP Passthrough. L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) is a VPN (Virtual Private Network) protocol for carrying data from one device to another securely over the Internet.

4.Has WPA2 Enterprise
Apple Airport Express

This is a router feature that is designed to authenticate individual users to an external server using a username and password. It is more secure and complex than WPA.

5.Has WPA2-PSK
Apple Airport Express

WPA2-PSK is a method of securing your network using WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) as well as a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) password. This was designed for home users without an enterprise authentication server.

6.Has Network Address Translation (NAT)
Apple Airport Express

With NAT you can use one IP address, e.g. that of the router, for a network of devices. It can increase security and make it easier to make changes to your internal network.

Features

1.Is DLNA certified
Apple Airport Express

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.IPv6 enabled
Apple Airport Express

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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.
