The ESR300 is a 2.4 GHz Wireless N300 Cloud Router with a 4-Port Fast Ethernet switch, Fast Ethernet WAN port and USB port. With the free EnShare™ app, families can use their Apple iPhones®, iPads® or Android™-based tablets or smartphones to transfer video, music and other files to and from a router-attached USB hard drive when they’re in the home or when they’re away from home. Parents can also use EnShare to remotely monitor Cloud Router usage or disconnect devices connected to the Cloud Router whenever they’re away from home via an Internet connection.
The ESR300 features wireless speeds up to 300 Mbps and its high transmit power capability is designed to deliver extended range and expanded coverage so your family can connect more devices throughout your home. The ESR300 also supports several security features and settings including industry standard wireless encryption, such as WPA/WPA2 (Wireless Protected Access) to prevent unauthorized access to the home network; an advanced SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) firewall to block malicious software from the Internet from accessing networked devices; MAC Address filtering to grant only known computers and devices network access; and URL filtering to block access to unwanted or offensive websites. The ESR300 also includes robust VPN (Virtual Private Network) features so remote workers can securely connect to a corporate office while still meets the sharing and Internet access needs of other family members and their devices.
Users can also enable up to four separate and discrete SSIDs, Service Set Identifiers or ways to access the network. A Guest Access option can be applied giving families the ability to offer friends or visitors Internet access or access to specific devices, like networked printers, while protecting other networked computers or hard drives in the home that may contain private information.
This ESR300 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.
