Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Trendnet TW100-BRV214

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has a URL filter
Trendnet TW100-BRV214

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 TW100-BRV214

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 MAC address filtering
Trendnet TW100-BRV214

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.

5.Has Network Address Translation (NAT)
Trendnet TW100-BRV214

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.

6.Has PPTP Passthrough
Trendnet TW100-BRV214

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.

Features

1.Has QoS
Trendnet TW100-BRV214

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 TW100-BRV214

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 TW100-BRV214

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 dynamic routing
Trendnet TW100-BRV214

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.

5.power consumption operation

4.08W

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

Best

Belkin N150

1W

6.Has static routing
Trendnet TW100-BRV214

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.
