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
Asus RT-AC66U
Trendnet TEW 691GR

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has automatic IP
Asus RT-AC66U
Trendnet TEW 691GR

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.

3.Has port filtering
Asus RT-AC66U
Trendnet TEW 691GR

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 a static IP address
Asus RT-AC66U
Trendnet TEW 691GR

Static IP addresses remain consistent on each connection. This means the IP address can be used to allow remote access/configuration. Most home devices have a dynamic IP address, whereas larger companies usually use a static IP address.

5.Has a URL filter
Asus RT-AC66U
Trendnet TEW 691GR

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.

6.Has a Network Services Filter
Asus RT-AC66U
Trendnet TEW 691GR

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

Features

1.Has QoS
Asus RT-AC66U
Trendnet TEW 691GR

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.

2.Is DLNA certified
Asus RT-AC66U
Trendnet TEW 691GR

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.

3.IPv6 enabled
Asus RT-AC66U
Trendnet TEW 691GR

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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.Has Universal Plug n Play
Asus RT-AC66U
Trendnet TEW 691GR

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.

5.Network Time Protocol enabled
Asus RT-AC66U
Trendnet TEW 691GR

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).

6.Has static routing
Asus RT-AC66U
Trendnet TEW 691GR

Static routing is a simple form of routing, recommended if you have just one, or a small number, of routers to connect. They need to be configured and updated manually.
