Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
EnGenius ESR300

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has port filtering
EnGenius ESR300

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 URL filter
EnGenius ESR300

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 a static IP address
EnGenius ESR300

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.

5.Has Network Address Translation (NAT)
EnGenius ESR300

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 PPTP Passthrough
EnGenius ESR300

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.

Features

1.Has QoS
EnGenius ESR300

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
EnGenius ESR300

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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
EnGenius ESR300

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.
