XRouter Pro MIH-130/MIH-130A Internet Sharing Switch for MAC and
get your whole office online without shelling out thousands of dollars?
If so, the XRouter Pro Internet Sharing Switch offers the perfect solution.
This amazing Ethernet-to-Ethernet 10/100 switch 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 Pro 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 Pro's Wide Area Network (WAN) port,
and then run Ethernet cables from the XRouter Pro's LAN ports to each
of the client computers.
The XRouter Pro offers a familiar, intuitive Web-based configuration.
With its DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server, the XRouter
Pro 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 Pro 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 Pro'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
Pro's Virtual Server function.

The XRouter Pro also doubles as a 4-port 10/100 switch to provide networking

high speeds of 10Mbps and 100Mbps. Whether your environment is a
small company, home office or a classroom, the XRouter Pro is the affordable
choice for you.
