Security

Edimax BR-6428HPn

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has port filtering
Edimax BR-6428HPn

Port filtering is a type of access control where access to certain Internet service are assigned to users using port numbers. This can increase security as well as restricting Internet usage.

3.Has a static IP address
Edimax BR-6428HPn

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 a URL filter
Edimax BR-6428HPn

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.

5.Has Network Address Translation (NAT)
Edimax BR-6428HPn

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.

6.Has IPsec Passthrough
Edimax BR-6428HPn

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 BR-6428HPn

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.Network Time Protocol enabled
Edimax BR-6428HPn

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).

3.Has Universal Plug n Play
Edimax BR-6428HPn

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.

4.Has static routing
Edimax BR-6428HPn

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.

5.power consumption operation

500W
