2.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
Asus RT-AC66U
D-Link DIR-665
D-Link DIR-868L

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 RT-AC66U
D-Link DIR-665
D-Link DIR-868L

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.Has fast 802.11ac WiFi connection
Asus RT-AC66U

6.Has DNS relay
Asus RT-AC66U
D-Link DIR-665
D-Link DIR-868L

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

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

Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall

D-Link DIR-868L

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has a URL filter
Asus RT-AC66U

D-Link DIR-868L

URL filters are particularly useful if you want to restrict web access at specific times. For instance, a company router may be configured so that employees cannot access personal e-mail accounts during working hours.

3.Has port filtering
Asus RT-AC66U
D-Link DIR-665
D-Link DIR-868L

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 automatic IP
Asus RT-AC66U
D-Link DIR-665
D-Link DIR-868L

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.

5.Has SPI intrusion protection
Asus RT-AC66U
D-Link DIR-665
D-Link DIR-868L

All incoming traffic will be blocked except for those types selected in the Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) section. This helps to protect your network from unwanted traffic.

6.Has a Network Services Filter

D-Link DIR-665
D-Link DIR-868L

A Network Services Filter blocks the LAN - WAN packet exchanges and can prevent devices from using specific networks.

Features

1.Is DLNA certified
Asus RT-AC66U
D-Link DIR-665
D-Link DIR-868L

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 RT-AC66U
D-Link DIR-665
D-Link DIR-868L

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.IPv6 enabled
Asus RT-AC66U
D-Link DIR-665
D-Link DIR-868L

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.

4.Network Time Protocol enabled
Asus RT-AC66U
D-Link DIR-665
D-Link DIR-868L

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).

5.Has dynamic routing
Asus RT-AC66U
D-Link DIR-665
D-Link DIR-868L

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.Has Universal Plug n Play
Asus RT-AC66U
D-Link DIR-665
D-Link DIR-868L

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.
