High-Performance, Shared Internet Access for Wireless and Wired Users
The OfficeConnect® ADSL Wireless 54 Mbps 11g Firewall Router combines an ADSL2/2+ modem, router, 802.11g wireless access point, four-port switch, and firewall to enable up to 253 total (64 wireless) users to economically and securely share a share a single ADSL or ADSL2/2+ connection. The high-speed routing engine and 54 Mbps wireless throughput easily handle large data transfers and Internet downloads, including those from multimedia applications.
Providing a high-speed, 54 Mbps wireless connection for users with 802.11g-equipped PCs and laptops, it is also backward-compatible with 802.11b wireless LAN equipment, preserving existing network investments. This Wi-Fi certified router also features support of Wireless Distribution System (WDS). WDS simplifies setup of an extended or completely wireless network (requires access points that support WDS)
Advanced wireless security and multiple firewall features offer a strong level of protection for the network. To shield wireless connections, the 11g gateway router implements 128-bit WPA/WPA2 with TKIP/AES encryption for maximum security, along with 40/64 and 128-bit Wired Equivilant Privacy (WEP) encryption for legacy clients. A stateful packet inspection firewall, hacker pattern detection, URL filtering, IP and MAC address filtering and support for the SurfControl Web Filter service and other security features help protect the entire network from attacks and other Internet security risks.
The unit comes with a 14-day free trial of the SurfControl Web Filter Service, a premium subscription service for routers that blocks access to pornographic, prejudicial, violent and undesired Internet web content or services.
