Performance

1.WiFi speed

100MB/s

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

Best

Asus GX1008B V5

2000MB/s

2.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
Trendnet TDM-C504

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 DNS relay
Trendnet TDM-C504

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.

4.internal storage

0MB

Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Trendnet TDM-C504

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has a URL filter
Trendnet TDM-C504

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.

3.Has a static IP address
Trendnet TDM-C504

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.

4.Has IPsec Passthrough
Trendnet TDM-C504

You can enable IPsec Passthrough, to allow IPsec (IP Security Protocol) encrypted/authenticated data to pass through your router, enabling increased security.

5.Has PPTP Passthrough
Trendnet TDM-C504

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.

6.Has SPI intrusion protection
Trendnet TDM-C504

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.Has QoS
Trendnet TDM-C504

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.Network Time Protocol enabled
Trendnet TDM-C504

With Network Time Protocol (NTP) you can ensure that devices across a network display the exact same time and date, using UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).

3.Has Universal Plug n Play
Trendnet TDM-C504

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.

4.power consumption operation

5W

How much power the device consumes when it's switched on.

Best

Belkin N150

1W

5.Has static routing
Trendnet TDM-C504

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.
