1. WiFi speed

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

2. external antennas

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.

3. Has port filtering

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.
