validate the traffic that is passing through the router based on the
protocol. DoS Protection can protect your home network
against DoS attacks from flooding your network with server requests.
- Access Control: Access Control is used to block or allow specific
client devices to access your network (via wired or wireless) based on a
list of blocked devices or a list of allowed devices.
- IP & Mac Binding: IP & MAC Binding, namely, ARP (Address
Resolution Protocol) Binding, is used to bind network device's IP address to
its MAC address. This will prevent ARP Spoofing and other ARP attacks by
denying network access to an device with matching IP address in the Binding
list, but unrecognized MAC address.
Note: The router's wireless network name (SSID) and password, and
security option are preset in the factory. The preset SSID and password can be
found on the label of the router. You can customize the wireless settings
