7 We are obviously talking about a different price category of routers.
8 Most routers people use here in Germany for home systems are from their
9 ISP, and they are usually proprietary implementations where you cannot do
10 much more than to configure them by web interface with the enclosed
11 windows software (if you can decide which ports go through you already
12 have an "advanced" router). Unless by experimenting it is close to
13 impossible to decide what the router really does or does not.
14 I wouldn't trust them as far as I can throw a stone.
