Supports WPS Supports WPS Wi-Fi Protected Setup (previously called Wi-Fi Simple Config) is a network standard designed to ease set up of security-enabled Wi-Fi networks in the home. With it, you don't have to remember the user name and password to connect a new device wirelessly and you don't have to give out your password to guests. Wi-Fi Protected Setup supports methods (pushing a button, entering a PIN into a wizard-type application, Near Field Communication (NFC) Cards and USB Flash Drives) that are familiar to most consumers to configure a network and enable WPA or WPA2 security.
Yes
Quality of service Quality of service Typically abbreviated as QoS, it refers to being able to adjust the router to give more or less priority to different types of data moving across the network. For example, you can give higher priority to streaming video and online demanding games. In that case if someone is streaming a video and someone else is playing an online game, those computers will get more of the Internet bandwidth allocated to them. If someone else then needs to download a file, that download may go a bit slower, but the video and game won't be affected.
Yes
Guest network Guest network A guest network is a wireless network separate from your home network. It allows visitors, friends, or family access to your Internet connection without giving them access to your network. With a guest network, you don't have to give them your home network password and potential access to your computers on the network. We report which, if any, network frequency band the router can set up a guest network on.
