NAT IP Address Sharing
Your Modem employs Network Address Translation (NAT) to share the
single IP address assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider while
saving the cost of adding additional IP addresses to your Internet service
account.
SPI Firewall
Your Modem is equipped with a firewall that will protect your network
from a wide array of common hacker attacks including IP Spoofing,
Land Attack, Ping of Death (PoD), Denial of Service (DoS), IP with zero
length, Smurf Attack, TCP Null Scan, SYN flood, UDP flooding, Tear Drop
Attack, ICMP defect, RIP defect, and fragment flooding.
MAC Address Filtering
For added security, you can set up a list of MAC addresses (unique client
identifiers) that are allowed access to your network. Every computer
has its own MAC address. Simply enter these MAC addresses into a list
using the web-based user interface and you can control access to your
network.
Universal Plug-and-Play (UPnP) Compatibility
UPnP (Universal Plug-and-Play) is a technology that offers seamless
operation of voice messaging, video messaging, games, and other
applications that are UPnP-compliant.
Support for VPN Pass-Through

your Modem will allow your VPN-equipped computer to pass through the
