Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
D-Link DIR-632

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has L2TP Passthrough
D-Link DIR-632

You can enable L2TP Passthrough. L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) is a VPN (Virtual Private Network) protocol for carrying data from one device to another securely over the Internet.

3.Has WPA2 Enterprise
D-Link DIR-632

This is a router feature that is designed to authenticate individual users to an external server using a username and password. It is more secure and complex than WPA.

4.Has Network Address Translation (NAT)
D-Link DIR-632

With NAT you can use one IP address, e.g. that of the router, for a network of devices. It can increase security and make it easier to make changes to your internal network.

5.Has PPTP Passthrough
D-Link DIR-632

You can enable PPTP (Point-to-point tunneling protocol) Passthrough. This allows VPN connections using PPTP to pass through the router with ease. This method is less secure than L2TP passthrough.

6.Has WPA2-PSK
D-Link DIR-632

WPA2-PSK is a method of securing your network using WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) as well as a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) password. This was designed for home users without an enterprise authentication server.

Features

1.Has QoS
D-Link DIR-632

With (QoS) Quality of Service, you can optimise performance by deciding which traffic to prioritise when a bottleneck occurs. You can decide which traffic is important based on things like IP address and type of Internet service.

2.IPv6 enabled
D-Link DIR-632

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol. IPv6 operates as a separate network to IPv4, and has the capacity for more IP addresses and more features.

3.Has Universal Plug n Play
D-Link DIR-632

Universal Plug n Play (UPnP) is a set of networking protocols that permits networked devices, such as PCs, printers, Internet gateways, Wi-Fi access points and mobile devices to find each other and exchange information on the network.
