Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Netgear WPN824N

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has DoS protection
Netgear WPN824N

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.

3.Has PPTP Passthrough
Netgear WPN824N

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.

4.Has MAC address filtering
Netgear WPN824N

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.

5.Has Network Address Translation (NAT)
Netgear WPN824N

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 IPsec Passthrough
Netgear WPN824N

You can enable IPsec Passthrough, to allow IPsec (IP Security Protocol) encrypted/authenticated data to pass through your router, enabling increased security.

Features

1.Has QoS
Netgear WPN824N

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 Universal Plug n Play
Netgear WPN824N

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.
