Security

1.Has automatic IP
Asus RT-AC68U
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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
Asus RT-AC68U
Trendnet TEW 654TR

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

3.Has port filtering
Asus RT-AC68U
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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-AC68U
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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-AC68U
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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 IPsec Passthrough
Asus RT-AC68U
Trendnet TEW 654TR

You can enable IPsec Passthrough, to allow IPsec (IP Security Protocol) encrypted/authenticated data to pass through your router, enabling increased security.

Features

1.Has QoS
Asus RT-AC68U
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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
Trendnet TEW 654TR

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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).
