2.Has removable antennas
Asus RT-N12HP

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-N12HP

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has WPA2 Enterprise
Asus RT-N12HP

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.

3.Has MAC address filtering
Asus RT-N12HP

This is a security feature in which network access is granted to devices based on their unique MAC address. It can provide increased security, but it can be a risk if the user loses the device.

4.Has WPA2-PSK
Asus RT-N12HP

WPA2-PSK is a method of securing your network using WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) as well as a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) password. This was designed for home users without an enterprise authentication server.

5.Has PPTP Passthrough
Asus RT-N12HP

You can enable PPTP (Point-to-point tunneling protocol) Passthrough. This allows VPN connections using PPTP to pass through the router with ease. This method is less secure than L2TP passthrough.

6.Has IPsec Passthrough
Asus RT-N12HP

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-N12HP

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-N12HP

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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.Network Time Protocol enabled
Asus RT-N12HP

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).

4.Has dynamic routing
Asus RT-N12HP

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.

5.Has Universal Plug n Play
Asus RT-N12HP

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.
