The ESR300H’s high transmit power capability, up to 200mW (23dBm) is designed to deliver extended range and expanded coverage so your family can connect more devices throughout and around your home and take advantage of all the free and subscription-based Internet services now available on Blu-ray players, game consoles, set top boxes, HDTVs and more.
The ESR300H also supports several security features and settings including industry standard wireless encryption, such as WEP, WPA/WPA2 to prevent unauthorized access to the 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.
Users can also enable up to four separate and discrete SSIDs (Service Set Identifiers) or ways to access the network. This gives families the ability to offer friends or visitors Internet access or access to specific devices, like printers, while protecting other networked computers or hard drives in the home that may contain private information.
This smart router also employs intelligent QoS (Quality of Service) to prioritize bandwidth-intensive applications like HD video and gaming or bandwidth sensitive applications like VoIP (Voice over IP) telephone calls for optimal connectivity.
