WGV414 is an all-in-one networking solution for
homes and small to medium-size businesses. Its four
switched 10/100-Mbps Ethernet ports can link up
to four computers directly, or dozens of computers
through daisy-chained hubs or switches. Its integrated
IEEE 802.11b/g access point (AP) gives wireless
clients access to the network at speeds up to 11
(802.11b) or 54 (802.11g) Mbps. Connected to a DSL
or cable modem, it provides network users with high-speed
broadband Internet access. Its two foreign exchange
subscriber (FXS) ports let the user attach ordinary
telephones and enjoy extraordinary savings by making
calls over the Internet instead of the public switched
telephone network (PSTN).
The embedded DHCP server automatically configures
computers on the network for access to the Internet.
Firewall and NAT functions protect the network
from outside intruders. Wireless security can
be ensured by WEP, WPA, or WPA2 authentication
and encryption. MAC and IP address filters provide
further control over access to the network, while
internal users' access to the Internet can also
be filtered. To allow authorized access from the
outside, DMZ host, VPN passthrough, and VPN endpoint
features are available. A setup wizard makes initial
configuration quick and easy. A built-in browser-based
configuration and management utility gives the
user point-and-click control of all functions.
Working with DSL or cable, packed with the features
both families and businesses want, providing both
wired and wireless network access and low-cost
Internet telephony, the WGV414 is a gateway to
a new world of flexible and economical connectivity.
