2.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
Asus RT-AC68U
Sitecom WLR-4004

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
Sitecom WLR-4004

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
Sitecom WLR-4004

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.

5.Has DNS relay

Security

1.Has automatic IP

Sitecom WLR-4004

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.

2.Has a built-in network firewall

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

3.Has port filtering

Sitecom WLR-4004

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

Sitecom WLR-4004

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
Sitecom WLR-4004

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 SPI intrusion protection

Sitecom WLR-4004

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.Has dynamic routing
Asus RT-AC68U
Sitecom WLR-4004

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.

3.Has Universal Plug n Play
Asus RT-AC68U
Sitecom WLR-4004

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
Sitecom WLR-4004

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.IPv6 enabled

Sitecom WLR-4004

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.
