Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
?

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

TP-Link N900
2.Has a URL filter
?

URL filters are particularly useful if you want to restrict web access at specific times. For instance, a company router may be configured so that employees cannot access personal e-mail accounts during working hours.

TP-Link N900
3.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.

TP-Link N900
4.Has L2TP Passthrough
?

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.

TP-Link N900
5.Has MAC address filtering
?

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.

TP-Link N900
6.Has DoS protection
?

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.

Features

1.Has QoS
?

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.

TP-Link N900
2.IPv6 enabled
?

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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.

TP-Link N900
3.Is DLNA certified
?

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.

TP-Link N900
4.Has dynamic routing
?

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.

TP-Link N900
5.Has Universal Plug n Play
?

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.

TP-Link N900
6.Network Time Protocol enabled
?

With Network Time Protocol (NTP) you can ensure that devices across a network display the exact same time and date, using UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).
