When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
A WAN (Wider Area Network) port is most commonly used to connect the router to the internet. It can also be used to connect to an external private network.
DrayTek Vigor 2850n
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
Buffalo AirStation Extreme AC1750
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.
A higher maximum Wi-Fi speed results in better performance. This is measured in megabytes per second.
Asus GX1008B V5
Dual-band devices can transmit data quickly on the newest 5GHz band, using recent standards (e.g., 802.11n, 802.11ac). They can also use the older 2.4GHz band if needed.
Apple Airport Time Capsule
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.
More antennas result in increased signal strength. Devices with internal antennas often take up less space.
A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.
URL filters are particularly useful if you want to restrict web access at specific times. For instance, a company router may be configured so that employees cannot access personal e-mail accounts during working hours.
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.
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.
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.
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.
With (QoS) Quality of Service, you can optimize performance by deciding which traffic to prioritize when a bottleneck occurs. You can decide which traffic is important based on things like IP address and the type of internet service.
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.
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.
