21. 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.

22. 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.

23. 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.
