Netgear WNDR4300

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 WPA2-PSK

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.

5.Has L2TP Passthrough
Netgear WNDR4300

You can enable L2TP Passthrough. L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) is a VPN (Virtual Private Network) protocol for carrying data from one device to another securely over the Internet.

6.Has SPI intrusion protection
Netgear WNDR4300

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.

Features

Netgear WNDR4300

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.

2.Has QoS
Netgear WNDR4300

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.

3.IPv6 enabled
Netgear WNDR4300

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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
Netgear WNDR4300

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.
