Security

1.Has automatic IP
Linksys E2500

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
Linksys E2500

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

3.Has port filtering
Linksys E2500

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.

4.Has a URL filter
Linksys E2500

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 a static IP address
Linksys E2500

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.

6.Has MAC address filtering
Linksys E2500

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.

Features

1.Has QoS
Linksys E2500

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
Linksys E2500

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.IPv6 enabled
Linksys E2500

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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.

4.Has Universal Plug n Play
Linksys E2500

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.

5.Has static routing
Linksys E2500

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.
