Insight on EnGenius Cloud Router – Wireless

A EnGenius Cloud Router lets you manage your router from anywhere remotely which is not possible with normal routers where you need to be connected to the local network perform these activities.

A router connects networks, it directs the traffic on the internet. It also maintains a routing table based on its current understanding of the state of the network it is connected to and use this information along with distance and cost algorithms to determine the best route for a given packet, a router decides which way to send each information packet. A data packet is forwarded from one router to another router through the networks that constitute the internetwork until it reaches its destination node.

Two or more data lines from various networks may be connected to a router. A router maintains a table of the available routes and their conditions When a data packet comes in on one of the lines, the router reads the address information in the packet to determine the ultimate destination using information in its routing table, the packets are sent to the next destination accordingly. This creates an overlay internetwork.

The EnGenius Cloud Router is a 2.4 GHz Wireless Router with Fast Ethernet WAN port and built-in 4-Port Fast Ethernet switch for connecting home entertainment devices like game consoles or Smart TVs, so they can access a family’s Internet connection. This high-powered Xtra Range™ pod-shaped router also includes a USB port for attaching a storage device and sharing media content in the home or away from home to mobile devices like smartphones or tablet and laptop PCs with Personal Media Cloud EnShare™.

Xtra Range™ — The EnGenius Cloud Router high transmission power capability is designed to deliver extended range and expanded coverage so your family can connect more devices throughout your home. The EnGenius Cloud Router wireless transmission speeds up to 300 Mbps. It supports industry standard wireless encryption, security features, and settings such as WPA/WPA2) to prevent unauthorized access to the network; an advanced SPI ( Stateful Packet Inspection) firewall to block malicious codes and software’s from the Internet from accessing networked devices; MAC Address filtering allows only known computers and devices network access; and URL filtering to block access to unwanted or offensive websites.

Users can enable maximum four separate and discrete Service Set Identifiers (SSIDs) to access the network. Protecting other networked computers or hard drives in the home that may contain private information.

The EnGenius Cloud router also employs intelligent QoS (Quality of Service) to prioritize bandwidth-intensive applications like video and gaming or bandwidth sensitive applications like VoIP (Voice over IP) telephone calls for optimal connectivity whether over wired or wireless connections.

High-Speed WIFI
Utilizes 802.11n standard speeds, up to 300 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz frequency band, ideal for media streaming, online gaming, and large file transfers in and around the home.

Fast Ethernet Speeds
Includes a 4-Port Fast Ethernet Switch and Fast Ethernet WAN port for 10x faster throughput than standard Ethernet.

USB Media Sharing
EnShare™ lets you access media content from a storage device attached to the USB port of the EnGenius Cloud Router in the home or even when you’re away from home.

Extra Guest Access Options
Up to four separate and discrete SSIDs can be set to enable friends or visitors to access the Internet while protecting other networked computers or hard drives in the home that may contain private information.

Applications Priority and Quality of Experience Maintenance
Intelligent QoS (Quality of Service) prioritizes bandwidth intensive applications like HD video and gaming or bandwidth sensitive applications like VoIP telephone calls.

Robust Industry-Standard Security
WPA and WPA2 wireless encryption, SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) firewall, Denial of Service blocking and MAC and URL filtering to make your home network safer from intruders or from malicious software attacks from the Internet
