This Broadband Router DI-713P enables you to share your DSL or Cable Internet connection with computers on your wired or wireless network, and allows wireless LAN users to share a single Internet Connection while providing the safety and security of port blocking, packet filtering, and a natural firewall. 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.
DI-713P provides two levels of security support. First, it masks local usersí IP addresses from others on the Internet making it much more difficult for a hacker to target a machine on your 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.
DI-713P provides special pass through support for common VPN implementations. 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 DI-713P. Inte- grated DHCP services allow up to 252 users to get their IP address automatically on boot up from DI-713P outer. Client machines require no software, simply set them to accept a dynamically assigned IP address and reboot. Each time they are powered up DI-713P will recognize them and set their IP address to instantly connect them to the LAN.
