D-Link Wireless Broadband Gateway with 3-Port Switch and Print Server gateways/controller
D-Link's DI-713P allows wireless LAN users to share the Internet connection while providing the security of 128-bit Encryption. Static address support, integrated DHCP, PPPoE, and device name support will allow it to connect to nearly any broadband provider whether Cable or DSL based, and at the same time simplify local area network settings.
The DI-713P provides two levels of security support. First, it masks local users' IP addresses from others on the Internet making it much more difficult for a hacker to target a machine on the network. Secondly it can block and redirect certain ports to limit the services that outside users can access. Specific ports can be opened by the user to ensure that games and other Internet applications will run properly.
The DI-713P provides special pass through function for common VPN implementations including PPTP (Point to Point Tunneling Protocol), L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) and IPSec*. The Virtual Server feature allows the user to expose HTTP, FTP, Game Servers and other local services to be accessible to Internet users located outside the LAN. The User-Definable Application Sensing Tunnel feature allows the user to define the attributes to support special applications requiring multiple connections, such as Internet gaming, video conferencing, and Internet telephony. A DMZ setting can be applied to a single client behind the DI-713P to expose it to the Internet and ensure complete Internet application compatibility even if specific ports are not known.
Unlike proxy server or NAT software that requires the software server to remain visible on the Internet, no local computers are directly externally visible when using the DI-713P. Also the DI-713P, like broadband, is always on, removing the need to constantly boot a software server when Internet access is desired from a client.
Integrated DHCP services allow up to 252 users to obtain their IP address automatically on boot up from the DI-713P. Client machines require no software, simply set them to accept a dynamically assigned IP address and reboot. Each time they are powered up the DI-713P will recognize them and set their IP address to instantly connect them to the LAN.
