Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
TP-Link N900
Trendnet TEW 654TR

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has a URL filter
TP-Link N900
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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.

3.Has a static IP address
TP-Link N900
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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.

4.Has L2TP Passthrough
TP-Link N900
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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.

5.Has MAC address filtering
TP-Link N900
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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.

6.Has DoS protection
TP-Link N900
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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.Is DLNA certified
TP-Link N900
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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
TP-Link N900
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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
TP-Link N900
Trendnet TEW 654TR

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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 dynamic routing
TP-Link N900
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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.

5.Network Time Protocol enabled
TP-Link N900
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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).

6.Has Universal Plug n Play
TP-Link N900
Trendnet TEW 654TR

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.
