9. USB ports

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.

10. Has MAC address filtering

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.

14. power consumption operation

How much power the device consumes when it's switched on.

15. Has PPTP Passthrough

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.
