Similarly, contacts on the SIM card can be displayed through the Contacts Manager; editing, adding, deleting or importing contacts is also possible.

Advanced network security

The DIR-457 utilises a built-in firewall to prevent potential attacks from across the Internet. It includes the best wireless encryption (WPA/WPA2) to prevent eavesdropping.

Simple to install and use

The router can be installed quickly and easily almost anywhere. This router is great for situations where an impromptu wireless network must be set up, or wherever conventional network access is unavailable.
