What's the difference between Gigabit and 100m routers? How to judge whether the router is Gigabit o

The Internet era pursues speed. Now the network speed is getting faster and faster, but whether the router matches and meets the demand is very important. The following section introduces the difference between Gigabit router and 100m router, and how to judge whether it is Gigabit or 100MB. Follow Xiaobian to see how to distinguish.

What's the difference between Gigabit router and 100m router

Gigabit Router: it refers to the router with wired port speed of 1000Mbps.

100m Router: it refers to the router with the cable port rate of 100Mbps.

The forwarding performance of the router is limited by the connection rate of the port, and the forwarding performance of the 100m router can only reach 100MB. Therefore, it is recommended to use the Gigabit router for the broadband exceeding 100m, which can maximize the broadband performance.

There are three ways to identify a Gigabit router. A router that meets one of the following three conditions is a Gigabit router.

Method 1: find the location of the label on the back (or bottom or side) of the product shell. The words "Gigabit wireless router" are marked on the bottom, indicating that the router is a Gigabit router, as shown in the following figure:

Method 2: find the location of the label on the back (or bottom or side) of the product shell, and check the label on the bottom of the router. There are several words in the model, indicating that the router is a Gigabit router, as shown in the figure below:

Method 3: log in to the router management page, click route settings & gt; & gt; Internet settings, and view the WAN port rate of the router in the advanced settings. If 10m / 100M / 1000m auto negotiation is selected in the rate option, it means that the router is a Gigabit router, as shown in the following figure:
