2.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
Asus RT-AC68U

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-AC68U

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-AC68U

802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.

Antennas

1.external antennas

3

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.

Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Asus RT-AC68U

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has automatic IP
Asus RT-AC68U

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-AC68U

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 URL filter
Asus RT-AC68U

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.

5.Has a static IP address
Asus RT-AC68U

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.

6.Has WPA2 Enterprise
Asus RT-AC68U

This is a router feature that is designed to authenticate individual users to an external server using a username and password. It is more secure and complex than WPA.

Features

1.Has QoS
Asus RT-AC68U

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.IPv6 enabled
Asus RT-AC68U

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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.

3.Has Universal Plug n Play
Asus RT-AC68U

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.

4.Network Time Protocol enabled
Asus RT-AC68U

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).
