Looking to 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.

Cross Platform Support
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.

Easy Configuration
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.

NAT Security
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.

Internet Router and LAN Hub
The XRouter also doubles as a 4-port hub to provide networking services as well. And it is the least expensive solution of its kind on the market today. Whether your environment is a small company, home office or a classroom, the XRouter is the affordable choice for you.
