2.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
Trendnet TW100-BRF214

802.11n is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors - a, b and g.

3.Has DNS relay
Trendnet TW100-BRF214

Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Trendnet TW100-BRF214

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has port filtering
Trendnet TW100-BRF214

Port filtering is a type of access control where access to certain Internet service are assigned to users using port numbers. This can increase security as well as restricting Internet usage.

3.Has a static IP address
Trendnet TW100-BRF214

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 a URL filter
Trendnet TW100-BRF214

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.

5.Has WPA2-PSK
Trendnet TW100-BRF214

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.

6.Has MAC address filtering
Trendnet TW100-BRF214

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
Trendnet TW100-BRF214

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.Network Time Protocol enabled
Trendnet TW100-BRF214

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).

3.Has dynamic routing
Trendnet TW100-BRF214

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.

4.Has Universal Plug n Play
Trendnet TW100-BRF214

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.

5.Has static routing
Trendnet TW100-BRF214

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

4.1W

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