2.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H

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
Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H

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.

Antennas

1.external antennas

3

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.

Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has a static IP address
Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H

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.

3.Has MAC address filtering
Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H

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
Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H

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
Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H

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 SPI intrusion protection
Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H

All incoming traffic will be blocked except for those types selected in the Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) section. This helps to protect your network from unwanted traffic.

Features

1.Has QoS
Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H

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.Network Time Protocol enabled
Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H

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).

3.Has dynamic routing
Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H

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.

4.IPv6 enabled
Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H

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
Buffalo WZR-HP-G450H

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.

6.power consumption operation
