Feature Summary

Here is a list of the RTA1750's features. It hasn't changed much since we reviewed the R1000G back in 2012. Changes are bolded.

Routing

  • Static and Dynamic IP, PPPoE , PPTP and L2TP WAN connections
  • MAC address cloning
  • MTU Adjustment
  • DHCP Server, range setting, lease time setting, and default domain
  • DHCP Client list
  • DHCP reservation
  • VLAN support
  • Virtual Server entry for single or multiple ports with TCP, UDP or all protocols forwarded. Enable/disable for each entry.
  • Port filtering – can set individual or range of incoming ports. Allows you to enable or disable TCP and UDP ports on network devices.
  • Bandwidth-based upload/download QoS control. Bandwidth rules list based on IP address (or IP range), port range and protocol
  • DMZ Host
  • UPnP enable/disable
  • DDNS support for Dyndns (www.dyndns.org) and TZO (www.tzo.com)
  • IPv6 support
  • NAT enable/disable
  • RIP 1/2 dynamic routing
  • Static routes

Security

  • Firewall enable/disable at each component level
  • VPN Passthrough enable/disable for PPTP, L2TP and IPSec
  • IPv6 pass through on VPN connection enable/disable
  • DoS (denial of service) enable/disable
  • Enable UDP Flood filtering (with settable threshold)
  • Enable TCP-SYN Flood attack filtering (with settable threshold)
  • Ignore Ping Packet from WAN port
  • Remote Management on WAN enable/disable
  • MAC address filtering
  • URL filtering
  • Internet access control - Rule based access control for host (domain name or IP address)

Wireless features

  • WEP, WPA / WPA2 Personal and Enterprise (RADIUS) support
  • 4 guest wireless networks
  • Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) support, pushbutton and PIN
  • Auto and manual channel set
  • Transmission rate set
  • SSID broadcast enable/disable
  • Enable/disable wireless
  • Beacon interval, RTS threshold, Fragmentation Threshold adjustments
  • Wireless MAC address filtering (allow or deny based on MAC address)
  • WMM disable
  • Short GI disable
  • Wireless access schedules
  • 5 GHz Wireless modes: a, a+n, a+n+ac (default)
  • 2.4 GHz Wireless modes: b, b+g, b+g+n (default)
  • 5 GHz channel width 20MHz/40MHz/80MHz
  • 2.4 GHz channel width 20MHz/40MHz
  • Transmit power adjust, 15%, 35%, 50%, 70% and 100%
  • Wireless network statistics, packets sent/received, active associated clients

Storage features

  • SMB file sharing (no user accounts)
  • FTP server. Can set port and control anonymous FTP and anonymous write protection. No secure FTP

IPv6 appears to be supported, but controls for IPv6 WAN connection are scattered among a few screens vs. being selected via a control on the WAN connection settings as most other routers do.

The storage features noted above are pretty basic. Note there are no media servers and USB printer sharing isn't supported. Note also the single USB port is USB 2.0.

The admin GUI's look and feel hasn't changed. It still has the same green and black motif and feature organization.

The same setup wizard also launches when you first connect to guide you. If you want to explore Amped's router feature set further, check the R1000G review and browse the gallery of admin screenshots below.

Storage Performance

The summary below shows all AC1750 routers we've tested with our standard procedure with USB 2.0 connections and both FAT32 and NTFS drive formats. It's obvious that storage throughput isn't one of the RTA1750's strongest features.

Routing Performance

Updated 2/25/16 - Router performance retest due to measurement process error

Routing throughput was measured using our standard router test process with the router loaded with 2.0.8 firmware. Table 2 summarizes the results and includes the top-ranked AC1750 class TP-LINK Archer C8 for comparison. Maximum simultaneous connections hit our test process limit; we consider anything over 30,000 connections as equal for ranking purposes.

Test Description Amped RTA1750 TP-LINK Archer C8
WAN - LAN 815 Mbps 777 Mbps
LAN - WAN 818 Mbps 771 Mbps
Total Simultaneous 1177 Mbps 1080 Mbps
Maximum Simultaneous Connections 39.189 7821
Firmware Version 2.0.8 3.16.27 Build 20140903 Rel. 75232
Table 2: Routing throughput

The IxChariot unidirectional composite plot for the RTA1750 is similar to most routers we test now with cyclical variation between mid-to-high 800 Mbps range and peak speeds over 900 Mbps for both directions.

The RTA1750 simultaneous up/downlink benchmark plot shows significant battling between up and downlink traffic. This indicates the router is struggling to maintain smooth routing.
