Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
TP-Link TL-R460

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has automatic IP
TP-Link TL-R460

Automatic IP allows a local area network (LAN) computer to give itself a unique IP address when Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is unavailable to do so.

3.Has a URL filter
TP-Link TL-R460

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 a static IP address
TP-Link TL-R460

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.

5.Has PPTP Passthrough
TP-Link TL-R460

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.

6.Has MAC address filtering
TP-Link TL-R460

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.

Features

1.Has QoS
TP-Link TL-R460

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
TP-Link TL-R460

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.

3.Network Time Protocol enabled
TP-Link TL-R460

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).

4.Has dynamic routing
TP-Link TL-R460

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.Has static routing
TP-Link TL-R460

Static routing is a simple form of routing, recommended if you have just one, or a small number, of routers to connect. They need to be configured and updated manually.

6.power consumption operation

1.97W

How much power the device consumes when it's switched on.
