Performance

1.WiFi speed

240MB/s

A higher maximum Wi-Fi speed results in better performance. This is measured in megabytes per second.

Best

Asus GX1008B V5

2000MB/s

2.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
CradlePoint CBR450

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.internal storage

0MB

Best

Apple Airport Time Capsule

2000GB

4.Has DNS relay
CradlePoint CBR450

With DNS relay or DNS caching, the router stores the response to queries for a short time. This means that the same query will return a quicker response if repeated from another computer in the same network.

Antennas

1.external antennas

0

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.

2.internal antennas

1

More antennas result in increased signal strength. Devices with internal antennas often take up less space.

Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
CradlePoint CBR450

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has a static IP address
CradlePoint CBR450

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 a URL filter
CradlePoint CBR450

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.

4.Has L2TP Passthrough
CradlePoint CBR450

You can enable L2TP Passthrough. L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) is a VPN (Virtual Private Network) protocol for carrying data from one device to another securely over the Internet.

5.Has Network Address Translation (NAT)
CradlePoint CBR450

With NAT you can use one IP address, e.g. that of the router, for a network of devices. It can increase security and make it easier to make changes to your internal network.

6.Has PPTP Passthrough
CradlePoint CBR450

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.

Features

1.Has QoS
CradlePoint CBR450

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.Has Universal Plug n Play
CradlePoint CBR450

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.

3.Network Time Protocol enabled
CradlePoint CBR450

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).
