Gigabyte Technology introduces its wireless VPN router, the GN-BR404W for
small businesses. The router not only enables Internet connection sharing
in the small office environment but provides Virtual Private Network (VPN)
function to allow remote or traveling users the ability to quickly and securely
connect to the office network.
Essential Networking Functions in a Single Box
Gigabyte's Wireless VPN
Broadband Router is the advanced, complete networking solution for your small
business, incorporating all the essential networking functions in one powerful
box. The GN-BR404W includes a wireless 802.11g compliant access point
(AP), which lets users connect wireless 802.11g devices to the network while the
router function lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet
connection. And finally, the Virtual Private Network (VPN) function allows
remote or traveling users to securely connect to your office or home network via
the Internet, or users in branch offices to connect to a corporate network.
Stay Secure and Mobile with VPN
With the Virtual Public Network (VPN)
function, the GN-BR404W permits remote or traveling users with a VPN endpoint to
securely access the office or home network over the Internet. For those that are
meeting clients or are working from home, they can immediately link to their
company network and obtain relevant business data. The data packages along
with all traffic are encrypted, with both ends of the traffic requiring
authorization of one another. Thus, VPN is a secure and ideal feature for
businesses with mobile employees or employees that work from home.
Advanced Security and Features
To protect your data and privacy, the
GN-BR404W can encrypt all wireless transmissions with 64/128/152-bit WEP
encryption, and also supports the robust wireless security of 802.1x
authentication and authorization. As well, the device has a powerful
firewall to protect against intruders and most known Internet attacks and the
router can be configured to filter Internet access for internal users.
The GN-BR404W also includes innovative setup features that remove the hassle
of router installation and configuration. With Gigabyte's unique Smart
Setup II feature, router configurations are automatically performed- all the
user is required to do is to open up the web browser and key in the user name
and password and the rest is done. With such a complete range of features,
users can entrust that the GN-BR404W offers the utmost in network security.
The GN-BR404W also includes a unique feature aimed at
broadening the network range through point to point connections between
AP's. This feature, called the Extended Distribution Wireless System
(EDWS), expands on the Wireless Distribution System (WDS). The GN-BR404W
can be converted from 802.11g to 802.11a compliance with the addition of
Gigabyte's GN-WLMA101 wireless LAN card for greater wireless flexibility.
With such robust features, the Gigabyte VPN router truly gives you the
flexibility, speed, and security you need for your office
