General info

1.LAN ports


With more LAN ports you are able to connect more computers to the network directly using LAN cables.


Asus GX1008B V4


2.warranty period


When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.


Sitecom DC-210


3.WAN ports


A WAN (Wider Area Network) port is most commonly used to connect the router to the Internet. It can also be used to connect to an external private network.


CradlePoint CBA750B


4.USB ports


With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.


Trendnet TEW-714TRU



1.WiFi speed


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


Asus GX1008B V5


2.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
Sitecom WLR-6100

802.11n is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors - a, b and g.

3.Has dual-band technology
Sitecom WLR-6100

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.

4.internal storage



Apple Airport Time Capsule


5.Has DNS relay
Sitecom WLR-6100

With DNS relay or DNS caching, the router stores the response to queries for a short time. This means that the same query will return a quicker response if repeated from another computer in the same network.


1.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.


Asus RT-AC68U


2.internal antennas


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

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Sitecom WLR-6100

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has a static IP address
Sitecom WLR-6100

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 a URL filter
Sitecom WLR-6100

URL filters are particularly useful if you want to allow different web access depending on the time of day, for instance allowing employees to use personal email outside of working hours.

4.Has L2TP Passthrough
Sitecom WLR-6100

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.

5.Has MAC address filtering
Sitecom WLR-6100

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.

6.Has DoS protection
Sitecom WLR-6100

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.


1.Is DLNA certified
Sitecom WLR-6100

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.

2.Has QoS
Sitecom WLR-6100

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.

3.Has dynamic routing
Sitecom WLR-6100

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.

4.Has Universal Plug n Play
Sitecom WLR-6100

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.IPv6 enabled
Sitecom WLR-6100

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.

6.Has static routing
Sitecom WLR-6100

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.
