Performance

1.WiFi speed

150MB/s

A higher maximum Wi-Fi speed results in better performance. This is measured in megabytes per second.

Best

Asus GX1008B V5

2000MB/s

2.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
Asus DSL-N10

802.11n is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors - a, b and g.

3.Has dual-band technology
Asus DSL-N10

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.

4.internal storage

0MB

Best

Apple Airport Time Capsule

2000GB

5.Has DNS relay
Asus DSL-N10

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

1

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.

2.Has removable antennas
Asus DSL-N10

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

Security

1.Has automatic IP
Asus DSL-N10

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
Asus DSL-N10

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

3.Has a URL filter
Asus DSL-N10

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.

4.Has MAC address filtering
Asus DSL-N10

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.

5.Has Network Address Translation (NAT)
Asus DSL-N10

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.

6.Has PPTP Passthrough
Asus DSL-N10

You can enable PPTP (Point-to-point tunneling protocol) Passthrough. This allows VPN connections using PPTP to pass through the router with ease. This method is less secure than L2TP passthrough.

Features

1.Is DLNA certified
Asus DSL-N10

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
Asus DSL-N10

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 dynamic routing
Asus DSL-N10

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.

4.Has Universal Plug n Play
Asus DSL-N10

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.
