6.CPU speed

2 x 1GHz

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (TP-Link Archer A6)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
7.Has dual-band technology

TP-Link Archer A6
Dual-band devices can transmit data quickly on the newest 5GHz band, using recent standards (e.g., 802.11n, 802.11ac). They can also use the older 2.4GHz band if needed.
8.RAM

0.26GB

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (TP-Link Archer A6)

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
9.has an external memory slot
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.

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.
2.Has removable antennas
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
The antennas can be removed if they are not needed, or replaced with longer ones if necessary.
3.internal antennas

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P))

0

More antennas result in increased signal strength. Devices with internal antennas often take up less space.

Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.
2.Has DoS protection
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
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.
3.supports WPA3
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
WPA3 is a method of connecting to a Wi-Fi network that is more secure than the previous protocol (WPA2). Individual data is better encrypted and it is harder for hackers to gain the password with a brute-force attack.
4.Has WPA2 Enterprise
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
This is a router feature that is designed to authenticate individual users to an external server using a username and password. It is more secure and complex than WPA.
5.supports WPA2
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
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.
6.Has MAC address filtering
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
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.
7.Has L2TP Passthrough
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
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.
8.Has IPsec Passthrough
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
You can enable IPsec Passthrough, to allow IPsec (IP Security Protocol) encrypted/authenticated data to pass through your router, enabling increased security.
9.Has SPI intrusion protection
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
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.

Features

1.IPv6 enabled
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)

2.has beamforming
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
Normally, a router broadcasts the Wi-Fi signal in all directions. Using beamforming technology, the router detects where your device is and focuses a stronger signal in that direction, resulting in a better connection.
3.supports mesh Wi-Fi
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
If you use several of these routers, they can link up with each other to provide a greater area of Wi-Fi coverage. It's particularly useful if you have a large house or apartment.

8.Has Universal Plug n Play
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
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.
9.Has QoS
Netgear Nighthawk AC2300 (R7000P)
TP-Link Archer A6
With (QoS) Quality of Service, you can optimize performance by deciding which traffic to prioritize when a bottleneck occurs. You can decide which traffic is important based on things like IP address and the type of internet service.
