The ADSL interface features a DMT full rate for downstream of up to 8Mbps and upstream line of up to 640Kbps. G.lite rate for downstream is up to 1.5Mbps and upstream is up to 512Kbps, high enough for most Internet applications today. G.lite support eliminates the need to install a splitter for the phone rate. The ADSL port auto-senses the installed rate and auto-negotiates between the full rate and G.lite.
The router supports IP packet routing over the WAN, in addition to transparent bridging. Virtual Private Network (VPN) over the public network (Internet) is also supported, providing services and capabilities equivalent to those offered by private network. VPN gives you the configuration capability to separate subnets and limit broadcast domains to improve traffic conditions over the WAN. The router provides cost-saving Internet functions like NAT and DHCP. Network Address Translator (NAT) allows multiple LAN users to share a single ISP account. DHCP automatically assigns proxy IP address for LAN users.
