The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.

Article code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product code if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
With a router you can connect networks. Most people will use a router to connect their local (wireless) home or office network (LAN) with the Internet. The router makes sure that all computers on the local network can connect with one another, with shared resources and with the Internet and can be configured to forward requests for connections from computers on the internet to the appropriate local computer. In order to connect your local network to the internet via an ADSL or cable, you also need an (Ethernet) ADSL or cable modem if it is not built-in in the router, which is most likely to be the case.

Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the data-sheets can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by ASUS: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

The official marketing text of ASUS WL-566gM 240 MIMO Wireless Router as supplied by the manufacturer
Key features:
- 240 MIMO: Advanced MIMO technology, double speed than 108 MIMO.
- Faster than wire Ethernet: Boost wireless transfer speed up to 100Mbps.
- 8x Coverage than 802.11g.
- EZSetup: Setup wireless LAN in 2 easy steps.
- Data Security: WPA2, WPA, WEP, ACL and SPI firewall.

Faster than wire Ethernet: Boost data transfer speed by 100Mbps
With "240 MIMO" technology, the WL-566gM boosts wireless transfer speeds by 8X compared with those of standard 802.11g devices. (240 MIMO support is also required on the client side for maximum performance. ASUS offers such adaptors: WL-106gM). Note: Actual throughput will vary depending on the wireless environment and other parameters.
