TP-Link TL-R460: 25 facts and highlights

1. WiFi speed

A higher maximum Wi-Fi speed results in better performance. This is measured in megabytes per second.
100MB/s
Asus GX1008B V5: 2000MB/s

2. 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.

9. Has DoS protection

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.

10. 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.

11. Has QoS

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.

12. 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.

16. Has Network Address Translation (NAT)

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.

Apple Airport Time Capsule: 2000GB

18. Has Universal Plug n Play

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.

19. Has MAC address filtering

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.

20. Has static routing

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.
