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 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.

14. thickness

15. LAN ports

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

16. internal antennas

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

17. 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.

18. weight

19. width

20. height

21. has an external memory slot

The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) so that you can either extend the internal storage with affordable memory modules or you can retrieve data, such as photographs, easily from a memory card.
