Security

1.Has automatic IP
Zyxel NBG-416N

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.

2.Has a built-in network firewall
Zyxel NBG-416N

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

3.Has a static IP address
Zyxel NBG-416N

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
Zyxel NBG-416N

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
Zyxel NBG-416N

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
Zyxel NBG-416N

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.Is DLNA certified
Zyxel NBG-416N

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
Zyxel NBG-416N

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
Zyxel NBG-416N

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
Zyxel NBG-416N

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
Zyxel NBG-416N

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.
