A higher maximum Wi-Fi speed results in better performance. This is measured in megabytes per second.
Asus GX1008B V5: 2000MB/s
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.
ASUS RT-AC68U: 3
4. Has a built-in network firewall
A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

5. Has DoS protection
DoS protection guards a content network against DoS (Denial of Service) attacks. These flood a network with server requests, slowing overall traffic and potentially causing long term interruptions.

6. 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.

7. USB ports
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
Trendnet TEW-714TRU: 2
8. 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.

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

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. Has DNS relay
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.

13. Has PPTP Passthrough
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.

14. 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.
