General info

1.LAN ports


With more LAN ports you are able to connect more computers to the network directly using LAN cables.
2.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.
3.USB ports


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


We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.


We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.


The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.


1.Wi-Fi speed


A higher maximum Wi-Fi speed results in better performance. This is measured in megabytes per second.
2.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
Western Digital N900
Wi-Fi 4 (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
Western Digital N900
Dual-band devices can transmit data quickly on the newest 5GHz band, using recent standards (e.g., 802.11n, 802.11ac). They can also use the older 2.4GHz band if needed.
4.internal storage


The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.


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.


1.Has a built-in network firewall
Western Digital N900
A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.
2.Has SPI intrusion protection
Western Digital N900
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.
3.Has MAC address filtering
Western Digital N900
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 WPA2-PSK
Western Digital N900
WPA2-PSK is a method of securing your network using WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) as well as a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) password. This was designed for home users without an enterprise authentication server.
5.Has IPsec Passthrough
Western Digital N900
You can enable IPsec Passthrough, to allow IPsec (IP Security Protocol) encrypted/authenticated data to pass through your router, enabling increased security.
6.Has a Network Services Filter
Western Digital N900
A Network Services Filter blocks the LAN - WAN packet exchanges and can prevent devices from using specific networks.


1.Has QoS
Western Digital N900
With (QoS) Quality of Service, you can optimize performance by deciding which traffic to prioritize when a bottleneck occurs. You can decide which traffic is important based on things like IP address and the type of internet service.
2.IPv6 enabled
Western Digital N900
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.
3.Has Universal Plug n Play
Western Digital N900
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.Network Time Protocol enabled
Western Digital N900
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).
5.is DLNA-certified
Western Digital N900
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.
6.operating power consumption


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