New Technology - Smart MIMO

RangeMax™ is an advanced Smart MIMO (Multi-in, Multi-Out) technology that uses seven internal antennas. The RangeMax™ WPN824 wireless router constantly surveys your home or office environment for physical barriers and interference: The RangeMax™ router adapts on the fly, adjusting the wireless signal to compensate for these performance blockers. For example; if you carry your laptop from the living room to the study, RangeMax™ automatically senses the change and selects from over 100 possible antenna configurations to deliver you the fastest, clearest connection! Everyone will enjoy consistently high-speed connections, everywhere in your house - no dropouts and no wireless dead spots.

DHCP server
A server is a system which that responds to requests across a computer network to provide, or help to provide, a network service. DCHP servers uses the DCHP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol), which is a standardized networking protocol used by servers on an IP network to allocate IP addresses to computers. The purpose of DHCP is to automate the IP address configuration of a computer without a network administrator. IP addresses are typically selected from a range of assigned IP addresses stored in a database on the server and issued to a computer which requests a new IP address. An IP address is assigned to a computer for a set interval, after which, the computer must renew the IP address or acquire a new one.
