XROUTER MIH-120 INTERNET SHARING HUB for MAC and PC
get your whole office online without shelling out thousands of dollars?
If so, the XRouter Internet Sharing Hub offers the perfect solution. This
amazing Ethernet-to-Ethernet hub connects an entire network of up to 252
users to the Internet using only one ISP account and one Cable or DSL
modem. The high-speed bandwidth is divided among the users who are online
at any one time.
The XRouter supports hybrid networks of Macintosh, PC and Unix/Linux computers,
and setup is a breeze. Simply run an Ethernet cable from your DSL or Cable
modem into the XRouter's Wide Area Network (WAN) port, and then run Ethernet
cables from the XRouter's LAN ports to each of the client computers.
The XRouter offers a familiar, intuitive Web-based configuration. With
its DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server, the XRouter eliminates
the hassle of typing long, messy strings of IP addresses by automatically
assigning TCP/IP values to each computer.
Perhaps best of all, the XRouter offers security levels superior to those
offered with most DSL expansion services. If you are currently using a
standard DSL or Cable modem, your computer is visible and vulnerable to
the entire Internet. With the XRouter's (NAT) Network Address Translation
functionality, all outgoing and incoming requests must pass through a
translation process, keeping unwanted requests from accessing your LAN.
This security feature is useful in all situations, but it is especially
valuable should you decide to host your own Web site using the XRouter's
Virtual Server function.
