Simple router probably means that it is best to use it just as a modem, and provide your own downstream device for wifi, access control, DHCP etc. etc. Or replace it altogether with your own xDSL device.

I suspect that it's probably not so much that the "simple" router can't do these things, more that it's not very good at doing them, at least according to the comparison site reviewers.
