Simplified, Cost-saving Broadband Internet Connection
As the most basic function, the router allows you to share your broadband line and cable/DSL modem in your office or home. To let everybody logon, this device automatically creates and assigns an IP number for each user, simplifying every one's logon operation.
With built-in wireless LAN connections and 10/100Mbps switch, this router provides ready connection for workstations and servers, with or without the network wires. These built-in functions save you the cost and trouble of installing a separate wireless access point and Ethernet switch.
Real Througput 10 Times Faster Than 802.11b
When operating with other D-Link AirPlusG+ devices, the DI-624+ provides a real throughput 10 times faster than the standard 802.11b. This makes the DI-624+ ideal for home and business users implementing high-bandwidth applications such as audio and video streaming, on-line gaming, and for transferring large files over the wireless network.
When operating with other 802.11g devices, the DI-624+ supports data transfer rates of up to 54Mbps. The router provides seamless interoperability with all 802.11b and 802.11b+ wireless equipment. With high data transfer rates and backward compatibility with other standards, the DI-624+ is the ideal wireless solution that offers an upgrade to a fast, new technology while protecting your past investments in hardware.
DMZ Host to Open Public Domain
You can configure any of the built-in LAN ports to function as a DMZ port. A DMZ setting can be applied to a single client (such as a Web server) behind the router to fully expose it to the Internet and ensure complete Internet application compatibility even if the specific port is not known. This allows you to set up web sites and e-commerce business from your office while maintaining protection for the rest of your office LAN.
Access to the router from your home/office can be set based on users' MAC addresses and IP addresses. Parental control to filter certain URL and block web sites can be set through URL keywords and domain names. Outbound link scheduling can be made in conjunction with NTP. The router supports the Network Time Protocol (NTP), allowing you to install a time server behind the router to synchronize time for your network environment. This protects you from the risks inherent in obtaining Internet, minimizes security risks from the outside, and maximizes timing accuracy on your network.
Enhanced Wireless Security
To protect transmitted data in the air, the router employs the enhanced 64/128/256-bit industry-standard WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) encryption protocol. WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) provides users a higher level of security for data and communications than has previously been available.
UPnP Enabled for Compatibility
The router is designed for easy and robust connectivity among heterogeneous standards-based network devices. Computers can communicate directly with the router for automatic opening and closing of UDP/TCP ports to take full advantage of security provided without sacrificing functionality of on-line applications.
