With the D-Link DIR-300 Wireless G Router, you can share a high-speed Internet connection wirelessly, so several people can be on-line surfing, chatting or checking e-mails simultaneously. This router acts as the heart of your Wi-Fi™ network, so you can also share photos, music, video, printers and digital media players.
Basic Wi-Fi™ networking
The router adheres the 802.11g specification from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). It can be used with any Wi-Fi™ adapter or device based on the older standard 802.11b or the newer standard 802.11n.
The router can be used with any type of broadband connection, either based on ADSL (no modem included), cable or ISPs offering telephone or TV services with Internet access. The Wireless G Router includes four Ethernet ports ready for you to connect Ethernet-enabled PC, print server and other devices.
The router includes a firewall that prevents hackers from entering your network from the Internet. You can also control which devices are allowed to join the network via the MAC address filtering feature. Last but not least, parental control allows you to block certain web site addresses, preventing users from viewing inappropriate content. This can be adjusted according to the time of the day (scheduling).
Easy to install
The router includes D-Link’s Click’n Connect software (DCC). This wizard allows anybody without any prior technical knowledge to install the router and connect to the Internet within minutes. Just by running the product CD, you are taken through establishing physical connections (power and cabling), configuring wireless network settings and security and then connecting to the ISP.
Simplified wireless security
With Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS), you do not have to memorise complicated passwords and key them in several times.
Just press the button on the side of the router, then click from within your adapter’s utility software to make the pair automatically generate the necessary wireless network name (SSID) and encryption keys. The “PIN method” is also supported. WPS is a standard from the Wi-Fi Alliance so any devices displaying the logo will work with each other, regardless of the brand.
“Works with Windows Vista™” logo
The DIR-300 passed rigorous testing to achieve Microsoft® Windows Vista™’s approval. This means that you will be able to take full advantage of the new operating system functionalities, such as discovering and managing devices with the Network Explorer and Network Map features in Windows Vista™. This automatically gives the router Xbox Live® service compatibility. The router is also compatible with Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, and Playstation®Network.
