802.11g Wireless ADSL 2+ 4-port Security Gateway. Ideal super fast, secure, virus-free wireless solution for small businesses

ZyXEL's Prestige 662HW security gateway is a fast, powerful, all-in-one ADSL modem/router for SOHO, SMB and enterprise branch offices. The security gateway integrates a high-speed ADSL 2+ port, 4-port 10/100Mbps auto MDI/MDIX Ethernet switch, Dial Backup functions, and 54Mbps IEEE 802.11g wireless connectivity.

To further enhance the wireless performance, the Prestige 662HW sports ZyXEL's 802.11g+ "SuperSpeed" Technology that significantly boosts wireless transfer rate to an amazing 125Mbps rate, a quantum leap from the conventional 802.11b standard.

The Prestige 662HW is a full-featured security gateway that incorporates VPN, Firewall and Anti-Virus technologies. Its smart virus-scanning engine reinforces Anti-Virus protections on network entry points; and through guarding inbound and outbound traffics, the platform is capable of automatic detection and elimination of viruses introduced by Internet activities.

The robust Firewall security features, as well as standard IPSec VPN (Virtual Private Network) also effectively protect against network intrusions.

Additional features such as Zero Configuration, Auto Fail-over and Fall-back Dial Backup, Traffic Redirect, and Media Bandwidth Management (MBM), maximize performance while minimizing operation and maintenance cost. Management is further simplified by the Web-based configuration and administrator wizards.

Scalable, secure, and easy to use, ZyXEL's Prestige 662HW is the ideal secure wireless broadband solution to meet today's business needs.

Higher-speed Internet Access
The Prestige 662HW is a high performance ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+ gateway that allows small and medium offices to have Internet access and LAN-to-LAN applications over existing copper lines. With speeds of up to 12Mbps (ADSL2) or 24Mbps (ADSL2+), the Prestige 662HW offers higher data transfer rates and better bandwidth than traditional ADSL enabled gateways.

ZyXEL "SuperSpeed" Technology
Featuring ZyXEL's proprietary 802.11g+ SuperSpeed Technology, Prestige 662HW breaks the speedometer with astounding 125Mbps rate when paired with SuperSpeed-capable clients such as ZyXEL G-162 or G-360, significantly surpasses the 54Mbps 802.11g and 11Mbps 802.11b standard.

Network-based Anti-Virus
The Anti-Virus scan engine inside the Prestige 662HW provides users with a greater range of network security. It detects and eliminates virus and worm attacks from network entry points by scanning each incoming and outgoing e-mail (SMTP/POP3), as well as traffics from the Web (HTTP) and file transfer (FTP). Base on automatic signature updates, it provides real-time network protection against viruses and protects clients that are not already equipped with Anti-Virus measures.

Robust Firewall Security and Enhanced VPN Performance
Based on Stateful Packet Inspection and Denial of Service (DoS) features, Prestige 662HW provides state-of-the-art Firewall performance and robust security to defend against hackers, network intruders and other threats. Furthermore, an ASIC DES accelerator enhances VPN performance to a level higher than ever.

Zero Configuration
The Zero Configuration technology employs in Prestige 662HW allows users to hook up a DSL connection without hassle. The user-friendly design built in the gateway is OS-independent, thus supports all operating systems on the host PC.

Auto Fail-over and Fall-back WAN Backup Solution
The Prestige 662HW features a Fail-over and Fail-back WAN Backup Solution for complete reliability. When the DSL connection fails, traffic is forwarded to either a backup ISDN or analog modem to maintain data exchange. When the DSL connection is re-established, traffic will be fully restored. Prestige 662HW also performs backup functions by redirecting traffic to a specific gateway to ensure availability of the Internet connection. The WAN Backup Solution saves device maintenance cost and reduces loss from daily operation.

Wider-range Wireless LAN Connectivity
The wireless performance of Prestige 662HW can be further enhanced by the detachable Reserve SMA antenna. The antenna increases the signal coverage to reach beyond the wired network for mobility and flexibility.

Firewall security
Part of a computer system or network which is designed to block unauthorized access while permitting outward communication.
MAC address filtering
Security access control method whereby the 48-bit address assigned to each network card is used to determine access to the network. MAC addresses are uniquely assigned to each card, so using MAC filtering on a network permits and denies network access to specific devices through the use of blacklists and whitelists.
