Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
Western Digital N900 Central

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has a static IP address
Western Digital N900 Central

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 WPA2-PSK
Western Digital N900 Central

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.

4.Has MAC address filtering
Western Digital N900 Central

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)
Western Digital N900 Central

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 a Network Services Filter
Western Digital N900 Central

A Network Services Filter blocks the LAN - WAN packet exchanges and can prevent devices from using specific networks.

Features

1.Is DLNA certified
Western Digital N900 Central

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
Western Digital N900 Central

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.Network Time Protocol enabled
Western Digital N900 Central

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.IPv6 enabled
Western Digital N900 Central

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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.

5.Has Universal Plug n Play
Western Digital N900 Central

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.
