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.

5. Has dual band technology

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.

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.

16. 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.

17. 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.

19. 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.

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.

21. 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.
