Performance

1.WiFi speed

1300MB/s

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

2000MB/s

2.Has dual-band technology
D-Link DGL-5500

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.

3.Has fast 802.11ac WiFi connection
D-Link DGL-5500

802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.

4.Has DNS relay
D-Link DGL-5500

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.

5.internal storage

0MB

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.

Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
D-Link DGL-5500

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has IPsec Passthrough
D-Link DGL-5500

You can enable IPsec Passthrough, to allow IPsec (IP Security Protocol) encrypted/authenticated data to pass through your router, enabling increased security.

3.Has L2TP Passthrough
D-Link DGL-5500

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.

4.Has WPA2-PSK
D-Link DGL-5500

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 Network Address Translation (NAT)
D-Link DGL-5500

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
D-Link DGL-5500

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
D-Link DGL-5500

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.Is DLNA certified
D-Link DGL-5500

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.

3.Has Universal Plug n Play
D-Link DGL-5500

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.

4.IPv6 enabled
D-Link DGL-5500

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.
