ADSL Router with 4-port Ethernet Switch and **NEW** Graphical User Interface (GUI)
The ZyXEL Prestige 643 is an ideal solution for SOHO users who value super fast Internet access or LAN to LAN connections over existing copper wires. An ADSL-based router with an integrated 4-port 10/100 Mbps switch, the Prestige 643 provides maximum speeds of 8Mbps for up to 4 computers without the extra cost of hubs or switches.
Standard-based, auto-sensing ADSL Solution
With Multi-Mode standards support, the P643 automatically senses and switches between full-rate and G.lite standards offered by the service provider. This means that you can easily upgrade from G.lite service to a full-rate service without purchasing a new ADSL Modem. Incorporating ZyXEL's first-in-the-world PPPoE implementation, the Prestige 643 not only saves the cost of PPPoE installation in individual computers, but also makes Internet access as easy as dial-up network scenarios without new knowledge from users
An Instant LAN with an Integrated 10/100Mbps Switch
The combination of a switch and router makes the Prestige 643 more space efficient and less expensive than separate boxes. The built-in switch provides each connection a dedicated 10 /100 Mbps bandwidth that greatly increases the throughput for bandwidth-sensitive applications as opposed to a hub where the bandwidth is inefficiently shared by all the stations.
Powerful NAT and Routing Features for Internet Access Sharing
The multimedia-aware NAT (Network Address Translation) feature not only allows an unlimited number of users to access the Internet with a single ISP account, but also supports multimedia applications such as NetMeeting, CUSeeMe, IRC, RealPlayer and ICQ. With PPP, routing and robust security features, the Prestige 643 connects your computers to the Internet while protecting your local network.
Easy of Use and Management
The web browser-based GUI (Graphical User Interface) allows easy installation of the Prestige 643 and effortless management either locally or remotely. With the built-in DHCP server, which automatically assigns and configures IP parameters to the computers on your LAN, Internet connections become plug-and-play.
