The ESR600 N600 Xtra Range Router from EnGenius is a wireless dual band (300 + 300 Mb/s) router featuring a Gigabit WAN port for faster upload and download speeds. It comes equipped with a built-in 4-port Gigabit switch for connecting home entertainment devices like HDTVs, Blu-ray players, set top boxes, or game consoles so they can access your family’s Internet connection. This high-powered Xtra Range pod-shaped router also includes a USB port for attaching a storage device and sharing media content in the home or away from home to mobile devices like smartphones or tablet and laptop PCs with EnShare — your Personal Cloud.
This router has a high transmit power capability and is designed to deliver extended range and expanded coverage so your family can connect more devices throughout your home. It also supports several security features and settings including industry standard wireless encryption, such as WPA/WPA2 (Wireless Protected Access) to prevent unauthorized access to the home network; an advanced SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) firewall to block malicious software from the Internet from accessing networked devices; MAC Address filtering to grant only known computers and devices network access; and URL filtering to block access to unwanted or offensive websites.
You can also enable up to 8 separate and discrete SSIDs, Service Set Identifiers (4 per frequency band), or ways to access the network. This gives you the ability to offer friends or visitors Internet access or access to specific devices, like networked printers, while protecting other networked computers or hard drives in the home that may contain private information.
This wireless router also employs Advanced QoS (Quality of Service) to prioritize bandwidth-intensive applications like video and gaming or bandwidth sensitive applications like VoIP (Voice over IP) telephone calls for optimal connectivity whether over wired or wireless connections.
