3.Has a URL filter
Edimax 3G-6408n

URL filters are particularly useful if you want to allow different web access depending on the time of day, for instance allowing employees to use personal email outside of working hours.

4.Has IPsec Passthrough
Edimax 3G-6408n

You can enable IPsec Passthrough, to allow IPsec (IP Security Protocol) encrypted/authenticated data to pass through your router, enabling increased security.

5.Has MAC address filtering
Edimax 3G-6408n

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 L2TP Passthrough
Edimax 3G-6408n

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.

Features

1.Has QoS
Edimax 3G-6408n

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 Universal Plug n Play
Edimax 3G-6408n

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.

3.Has static routing
Edimax 3G-6408n

Static routing is a simple form of routing, recommended if you have just one, or a small number, of routers to connect. They need to be configured and updated manually.
