Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Edimax AR-7167WnA

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has a static IP address
Edimax AR-7167WnA

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.

3.Has a URL filter
Edimax AR-7167WnA

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 Network Address Translation (NAT)
Edimax AR-7167WnA

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
Edimax AR-7167WnA

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 IPsec Passthrough
Edimax AR-7167WnA

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

Features

1.Has QoS
Edimax AR-7167WnA

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 AR-7167WnA

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 Inter-VLAN routing
Edimax AR-7167WnA

Inter-VLAN routing is a process of forwarding network traffic from one VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) to another VLAN using a router.
