    Default Difference in routers?

    I am no expert in routers and all, hence on the forum. I wanted to know what is the difference in routers apart from the brand name. The main features which many know about are whether the router is wireless or not which I suppose is the main difference. Other than that is there anything else that one has to look out for when choosing between the different routers?

    The main features would be
    1. Range (Wireless g, n, n+..etc)
    2. Antenna type (Internal or external)
    3. No of antennals
    4. Wireless router with ADSL modem
    5. No of LAN ports
    6. Looks and cost
    7. User interfaces. (utility software)

    There are a couple differences you should look out for when picking a router ; the first thing you check when choosing a wireless router is whether it’s a b, g or n. the letters represent the router’s generation. You will want to avoid a b since it’s the oldest generation and as you can guess the slowest and the least compatible with modern technology. An n generation wireless router is a best option so far.
