|D-Link IEEE 802.11b Compliant Wireless Gateway +
|The D-Link DI-713P is a broadband IEEE 802.11b compliant wireless gateway. The
DI-713P provides the ability to share a broadband connection as well as a print server
function. The D-Link DI-713P allows a DSL or Cable Modem connection to be shared through
either its three local 10/100 Ethernet ports or via its integrated Wireless IEEE 802.11b
component. The DI-713P is equipped with a bi-directional LPT port to support a direct
printer connection. The DI-713's integrated Router and Firewall provide NAT, DHCP, and
packet filtering services between the local network and the Internet.
|D-Link's DI-713P allows wireless LAN users to share the Internet connection while
providing the security of 128-bit Encryption. Static address support, integrated DHCP,
PPPoE, and device name support will allow it to connect to nearly any broadband provider
whether Cable or DSL based, and at the same time simplify local area network settings.
|The DI-713P provides two levels of security support. First, it masks local users'
IP addresses from others on the Internet making it much more difficult for a hacker to
target a machine on the network. Secondly it can block and redirect certain ports to limit
the services that outside users can access. Specific ports can be opened by the user to
ensure that games and other Internet applications will run properly.
|The DI-713P provides special pass through function for common VPN implementations
including PPTP (Point to Point Tunneling Protocol), L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) and
IPSec*. The Virtual Server feature allows the user to expose HTTP, FTP, Game Servers and
other local services to be accessible to Internet users located outside the LAN. The
User-Definable Application Sensing Tunnel feature allows the user to define the attributes
to support special applications requiring multiple connections, such as Internet gaming,
video conferencing, and Internet telephony. A DMZ setting can be applied to a single
client behind the DI-713P to expose it to the Internet and ensure complete Internet
application compatibility even if specific ports are not known.
|Unlike proxy server or NAT software that requires the software server to remain
visible on the Internet, no local computers are directly externally visible when using the
DI-713P. Also the DI-713P, like broadband, is always on, removing the need to constantly
boot a software server when Internet access is desired from a client.
|Integrated DHCP services allow up to 252 users to obtain their IP address
automatically on boot up from the DI-713P. Client machines require no software, simply set
them to accept a dynamically assigned IP address and reboot. Each time they are powered up
the DI-713P will recognize them and set their IP address to instantly connect them to the
|* PPTP, L2TP and IPSec support compatibility are dependent on the platform
