Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Trendnet TEW 658BRM

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has a static IP address
Trendnet TEW 658BRM

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.

3.Has a URL filter
Trendnet TEW 658BRM

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 MAC address filtering
Trendnet TEW 658BRM

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)
Trendnet TEW 658BRM

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
Trendnet TEW 658BRM

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
Trendnet TEW 658BRM

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 dynamic routing
Trendnet TEW 658BRM

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.

3.Has Universal Plug n Play
Trendnet TEW 658BRM

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.

4.Has static routing
Trendnet TEW 658BRM

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.

5.power consumption operation

8.4W

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