2.Has dual-band technology
Netgear Nighthawk AC1900

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
Netgear Nighthawk AC1900

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.

Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Netgear Nighthawk AC1900

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has MAC address filtering
Netgear Nighthawk AC1900

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.

3.Has DoS protection
Netgear Nighthawk AC1900

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.

4.Has SPI intrusion protection
Netgear Nighthawk AC1900

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 Network Address Translation (NAT)
Netgear Nighthawk AC1900

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.

6.Has WPA2-PSK
Netgear Nighthawk AC1900

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.

Features

1.Has QoS
Netgear Nighthawk AC1900

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.IPv6 enabled
Netgear Nighthawk AC1900

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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.
