D-Link DSL-2540B: 21 facts and highlights

1. WiFi speed

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

2. 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.

3. Network Time Protocol enabled

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).

9. warranty period

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

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. 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.

14. Has static routing

Static routing is a simple form of routing, recommended if you have just one, or a small number, of routers to connect. They need to be configured and updated manually.

16. LAN ports

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

17. internal storage

18. 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.

19. weight

20. 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.
