A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

3.Has IPsec Passthrough
Zyxel NBG4604

You can enable IPsec Passthrough, to allow IPsec (IP Security Protocol) encrypted/authenticated data to pass through your router, enabling increased security.

4.Has WPA2-PSK
Zyxel NBG4604

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.

5.Has L2TP Passthrough
Zyxel NBG4604

You can enable L2TP Passthrough. L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) is a VPN (Virtual Private Network) protocol for carrying data from one device to another securely over the Internet.

6.Has DoS protection
Zyxel NBG4604

DoS protection guards a content network against DoS (Denial of Service) attacks. These flood a network with server requests, slowing overall traffic and potentially causing long term interruptions.

Features

1.Has QoS
Zyxel NBG4604

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.Is DLNA certified
Zyxel NBG4604

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.

3.IPv6 enabled
Zyxel NBG4604

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol.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.

4.Has dynamic routing
Zyxel NBG4604

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.
