The RB450G is a five port Gigabit ethernet router. Comparing to the RB450, the RB450G not only adds Gigabit speed capability, but also 256Mb of RAM, a faster CPU and a microSD card slot for file storage.

The device is powered by a fast AR7161 680MHz Atheros CPU, and also includes a temperature sensor and voltage monitor.

RB450G includes RouterOS - the operating system, which will turn this powerful system into a highly sophisticated router, firewall or bandwidth manager.

  1. All tests are done with Xena Networks specialized test equipment (XenaBay),and done according to RFC2544 (Xena2544)
  2. Max throughput is determined with 30+ second attempts with 0,1% packet loss tolerance in 64, 512, 1518 byte packet sizes
  3. Values in Italic indicate that max throughput was reached without maxing out CPU, but because board interface configuration was maxed out
  4. Test results show device maximum performance, and are reached using mentioned hardware and software configuration, different configurations most likely will result in lower results
