Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Asus RT-N66U

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has port filtering
Asus RT-N66U

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.

3.Has a URL filter
Asus RT-N66U

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.

4.Has automatic IP
Asus RT-N66U

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.

5.Has WPA2 Enterprise
Asus RT-N66U

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.

6.Has a Network Services Filter
Asus RT-N66U

A Network Services Filter blocks the LAN - WAN packet exchanges and can prevent devices from using specific networks.

Features

1.Is DLNA certified
Asus RT-N66U

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.

2.Has QoS
Asus RT-N66U

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.

3.Network Time Protocol enabled
Asus RT-N66U

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.IPv6 enabled
Asus RT-N66U

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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.

5.Has Universal Plug n Play
Asus RT-N66U

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.
