Low-end business routers start right about where consumer models top out. While they share some of the same features like a built-in switch, WiFi support, and different ISP compatibility, they offer features beyond this to suit the priorities of a business environment.
Business routers, do however, lack some of the features available in high-end consumer routers. You won’t find a convenient-but-insecure WPS button, for example, nor will you get USB ports for sharing a printer or storage. And it’s no surprise that you won’t find an on-board media server. These features aren't relevant for a business environment.
Robust VPN: Business-class routers provide virtual private networks that can handle many more users (anywhere from 5 to 100), while offering much stronger security than consumer models do. At its best, a VPN will provide an environment in which a remote user's experience is no different than if they were working in the office and hardwired to the network.
Virtual networks (VLANs): Known as guest networks on consumer routers, VLANs can perform the same function on a business-class router. But you can also set up other VLANs to segregate traffic on your network, so that sensitive data from one department--human resources, for instance--stays contained within that department's own network. An entry-level business-class router is capable of supporting several virtual networks, while a high-end model can support a dozen or more.
