Performance

1.WiFi speed

1200MB/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 dual-band technology
D-Link DIR-860L

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 DIR-860L

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.internal storage

0MB

Best

Apple Airport Time Capsule

5.Has DNS relay
D-Link DIR-860L

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.

Security

1.Has automatic IP
D-Link DIR-860L

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.

2.Has a built-in network firewall
D-Link DIR-860L

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

3.Has port filtering
D-Link DIR-860L

Port filtering is a type of access control where access to certain Internet service are assigned to users using port numbers. This can increase security as well as restricting Internet usage.

4.Has a static IP address
D-Link DIR-860L

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.

5.Has IPsec Passthrough
D-Link DIR-860L

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

6.Has L2TP Passthrough
D-Link DIR-860L

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.

Features

1.Is DLNA certified
D-Link DIR-860L

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.

2.Has QoS
D-Link DIR-860L

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.

3.IPv6 enabled
D-Link DIR-860L

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.

4.Has dynamic routing
D-Link DIR-860L

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.

5.Network Time Protocol enabled
D-Link DIR-860L

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).

6.Has Universal Plug n Play
D-Link DIR-860L

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.
