Ahh. You mean modern encryption standards. I wouldn’t worry about that. WPA2 has been the most up to date standard for a long time. They’ll all support it. The difference between the various models will be something else. If you need to support a mix of old and new wireless devices, you might want a dual-band router. Ordinarily, all devices connected to a single wireless router will be forced to run at the speed of the slowest device, but dual-band routers provide a slow channel for older devices and a fast channel for newer ones. You’ll need to consider how many wired devices need to attach to the router, and if you want the wired ports to be gigabit as opposed to the older 100Mbps ports. I’d assume most are gigabit now. I’m not sure.
