D-Link DIR-505: 30 facts and highlights

1. WiFi speed

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

2. Has 802.11n WiFi connection

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. external antennas

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.

4. Has automatic IP

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.

8. Has QoS

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.

10. USB ports

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.

11. Has L2TP Passthrough

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.

12. LAN ports

With more LAN ports you are able to connect more computers to the network directly using LAN cables.

13. Has MAC address filtering

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.

14. Has Network Address Translation (NAT)

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.

15. Has dynamic routing

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.

16. Has WPA2-PSK

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.

17. height

18. Has SPI intrusion protection

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.

19. Has a static IP address

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 (ie. it changes), whereas larger companies usually use a static IP address.

21. Has Universal Plug n Play

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.

22. internal antennas

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

23. internal storage

24. WAN ports

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.

25. warranty period

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
