Performance

1.WiFi speed

150MB/s

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

2.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
Trendnet TEW 712BR

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.internal storage

0MB

Best

Apple Airport Time Capsule

2000GB

4.Has DNS relay
Trendnet TEW 712BR

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.

Antennas

1.external antennas

1

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.

Security

1.Has a static IP address
Trendnet TEW 712BR

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.

2.Has a URL filter
Trendnet TEW 712BR

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 MAC address filtering
Trendnet TEW 712BR

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.

4.Has Network Address Translation (NAT)
Trendnet TEW 712BR

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.

5.Has PPTP Passthrough
Trendnet TEW 712BR

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 L2TP Passthrough
Trendnet TEW 712BR

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.

Features

1.Has QoS
Trendnet TEW 712BR

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.Has dynamic routing
Trendnet TEW 712BR

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.

3.Has Universal Plug n Play
Trendnet TEW 712BR

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.Has static routing
Trendnet TEW 712BR

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.

5.power consumption operation
