Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Netgear R6250

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has automatic IP
Netgear R6250

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.

3.Has SPI intrusion protection
Netgear R6250

All incoming traffic will be blocked except for those types selected in the Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) section. This helps to protect your network from unwanted traffic.

4.Has Network Address Translation (NAT)
Netgear R6250

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 DoS protection
Netgear R6250

DoS protection guards a content network against DoS (Denial of Service) attacks. These flood a network with server requests, slowing overall traffic and potentially causing long term interruptions.

6.Has WPA2-PSK
Netgear R6250

WPA2-PSK is a method of securing your network using WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) as well as a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) password. This was designed for home users without an enterprise authentication server.

Features

1.Has QoS
Netgear R6250

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.Is DLNA certified
Netgear R6250

All DLNA certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.

3.IPv6 enabled
Netgear R6250

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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.
