With the Microsoft 4-port router, you can connect up to four computers to a single broadband connection (with cable or DSL modem), share files and printers with other computers on your network at up to 100 Mbps, or play games with multiple players on the Internet and within your own network.
Included with the Microsoft 4-port router is an easy-to-use setup wizard, designed to make connecting your computers together easier. The router comes with strong security features, including a built-in firewall, Network Address Translation (NAT), and access control lists. The 4-port router easily connects to your network with universal plug and play for functionality such as voice messaging, video messaging, and games. You can also monitor your network status easily with Microsoft broadband network utility.
Along with the 4-port router, you'll receive a stand (detachable), a power supply cable, an Ethernet cable, a startup guide, a user's guide, a setup CD-ROM, and a blank floppy disk.
System requirements include a computer with a network adapter to configure the router, and external broadband (cable, DSL, or other) modem with Ethernet port (not compatible with dial-up modems), Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or Netscape Navigator 4.7 or later to view and use the router management tool, and an available 120 V AC power outlet.
Additional requirements include: a computer with processor running Windows 98, 98 SE, Me, 2000 Professional, XP Professional, or XP Home Edition; Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or later (setup will install Internet Explorer 6.0 browser components, if necessary, but will not displace your primary browser); 28 MB of available hard-disk space if you already have Internet Explorer 5.5 or 6.0 (132 MB of available hard disk space if you are installing Internet Explorer for the first time); a 4x or faster CD-ROM drive, and a VGA or higher resolution monitor
Note: Not all Internet service providers (ISPs) allow the sharing of a broadband connection. Please check with your ISP.
