Security

1.Has automatic IP
D-Link DIR-645

Automatic IP allows a local area network (LAN) computer to give itself a unique IP address when Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is unavailable to do so.

2.Has a built-in network firewall
D-Link DIR-645

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

3.Has a static IP address
D-Link DIR-645

Static IP addresses remain consistent on each connection. This means the IP address can be used to allow remote access/configuration. Most home devices have a dynamic IP address, whereas larger companies usually use a static IP address.

4.Has L2TP Passthrough
D-Link DIR-645

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.

5.Has MAC address filtering
D-Link DIR-645

This is a security feature in which network access is granted to devices based on their unique MAC address. It can provide increased security, but it can be a risk if the user loses the device.

6.Has Network Address Translation (NAT)
D-Link DIR-645

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.

Features

1.Has QoS
D-Link DIR-645

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.Has dynamic routing
D-Link DIR-645

Dynamic routing is useful if you need to configure several routers, as they can automatically find network destinations and best routes, as well as sharing information between routers. They can reroute automatically if there is a fault somewhere.

3.Network Time Protocol enabled
D-Link DIR-645

With Network Time Protocol (NTP) you can ensure that devices across a network display the exact same time and date, using UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).

4.IPv6 enabled
D-Link DIR-645

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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.

5.Has Universal Plug n Play
D-Link DIR-645

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.
