A single switch allows users to switch between the three modes. To the entry-level RT-N11, the RT-N12 also adds Broadcom Accelerange technology, which increases signal coverage. The RT-N12 can handle four separate networks, each with its own bandwidth allocation and security settings. Bandwidth can also be allocated to network activities, allowing gaming to be prioritized over web browsing, for example.
