The EtherFast Cable/DSL Router with 8-Port Switch from Linksys combines the functions of a Cable/DSL router, a network switch and network firewall into one compact device. The router allows you to share your Internet connection between several computers that can connect via 8 standard RJ-45 ethernet ports. The router also features a firewall to protect you from malicious software that can attack your computer from the Internet, making it an excellent choice for your home network.
The setup wizard utility makes installation a breeze, even for novice users. This makes it an excellent starting point for setting up a home network.
The router features a powerful firewall to help protect your computer against malicious attacks that often target computers connected to the Internet, giving you peace of mind while you are connected to the web.
The router allows advanced users to configure its QoS functionality. QoS prioritizes time-sensitive information so that it moves to the "head of the line" when coming in from or going out to the Internet. This is ideal to help improve performance in both online computer games and Voice Over IP applications.
