Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Netgear R6300

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has a static IP address
Netgear R6300

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
Netgear R6300

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)
Netgear R6300

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 a Network Services Filter
Netgear R6300

A Network Services Filter blocks the LAN - WAN packet exchanges and can prevent devices from using specific networks.

6.Has WPA2-PSK
Netgear R6300

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 R6300

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 R6300

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.Has Universal Plug n Play
Netgear R6300

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.IPv6 enabled
Netgear R6300

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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.
