The D-Link DI-704UP is an Ethernet Broadband Gateway with a built-in four-port switch plus a USB print server function. The DI-704UP provides the ability to share a single Ethernet Cable or DSL broadband connection and share a single printer among computers connected to the local network. The DI-704UP is equipped with four 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet ports and a USB port to support a direct printer connection. The DI-704UP's integrated Router and Firewall provide NAT, DHCP, and packet filtering services between the local network and the Internet. The DI-704UP is targeted at small business and home users who want to connect multiple computers and share a single printer. Intergrated Firewall
Static address support, integrated DHCP, PPPoE, and device name support will allow the DI-704UP to connect to nearly any broadband provider whether Ethernet Cable or DSL based. The DI-704UP's Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) feature provides dynamic allocation of IP addresses for up to 253 clients (computers) on the local network. Printer software is provided to allow clients to print to the network printer attached to the DI-704UP's USB print server port. Being very functional, the DI-704UP will connect to any Ethernet devices and multiple types of machines and operating systems. In addition, the four Ethernet ports offer the convenience of auto-detecting the media type, thus eliminating the need for using the correct type of cable (straight-through or crossover) when connecting different Ethernet devices to this gateway.
The DI-704UP provides two levels of security support. First, it masks the IP addresses of computers within the local network from the Internet, thus making it more difficult for a hacker to target a specific computer within the local network. Secondly, it can block and redirect certain ports to limit the services that outside users can access. To ensure that games and other Internet applications will run properly, the DI-704UP provides the capability to open specific ports.
The DI-704UP provides special pass through function for common VPN implementations including PPTP (Point to Point Tunneling Protocol), L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) and IPSec*. The Virtual Server feature allows the user to expose HTTP, FTP, Game Servers and other local services to be accessible to Internet users located outside the LAN. To allow any application to work even without knowing the ports to be opened, the DI-704UP allows a single client to be specified in the DMZ zone located on the web configuration utility
