Set-up options for basic or advanced installation
The Philips Wireless Base Station's web based interface has the option for basic or advanced settings. By choosing one of the selections you will be automatically guided through the settings of the base station. The program will give you quick installation and connection. Advanced installation will guide you through multiple settings such as Wireless, Firewall, parental control etc..
High level security protection
Wireless security provided by Wi-Fi. In some instances, WAP, WEP or Tkip may be all you need to protect wireless data. WEP is available in 40-bit (also called 64-bit), or in 108-bit (also called 128-bit) encryption modes. As 108-bit encryption provides a longer algorithm that takes longer to decode, it provides better security than the basic 40-bit (64-bit) encryption.
Advanced firewall protection
The firewall is a program that runs constantly in the background of the Philips Wireless Base Station. The firewall protects your network from Internet attacks. Setting it to FTP, DMZ or one of many others can be done via the easy setup wizard
Parental control options
The Philips Wireless Base Station employs the basic parental control features of URL blocking, Domain blocking and IP address blocking. It can be effectively employed quickly through the intuitive web-based configuration interface of the Philips Wireless Base Station. Multiple filter features are supported when accessing the Internet, based on a site's domain name, URL and/or IP address.
Access Internet, files, music and more anywhere in the house
The Philips Wireless Base Station can be connected to broadband Internet and gives your PC and other clients wired or wireless access to services such as sharing files, streaming files, music, video or pictures.
Wireless networks bring flexibility
Wireless gives you the ability to install PCs or clients in the house wherever you want. Laptop users can even sit in the garden and be on-line with the office, Internet or home network.
