Performance

1.WiFi speed

1200MB/s

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

Asus GX1008B V5

2000MB/s

2.Has dual-band technology
Linksys EA6300

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
Linksys EA6300

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

Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Linksys EA6300

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has a static IP address
Linksys EA6300

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.

3.Has IPsec Passthrough
Linksys EA6300

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

4.Has SPI intrusion protection
Linksys EA6300

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.

5.Has PPTP Passthrough
Linksys EA6300

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.

6.Has MAC address filtering
Linksys EA6300

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.

Features

1.Has QoS
Linksys EA6300

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.

2.Is DLNA certified
Linksys EA6300

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.

3.IPv6 enabled
Linksys EA6300

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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 Universal Plug n Play
Linksys EA6300

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.

5.Has dynamic routing
Linksys EA6300

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.

6.Has static routing
Linksys EA6300

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.
