Advanced Network Security and Flexible Management
The TD-W8961N utilizes NAT and SPI (stateful packet inspection) firewalls which inspect the contents of incoming packets before they are allowed in, preventing potential attacks from across the Internet. For added convenience, it supports access control based on MAC addresses, IP addresses, domain names or applications such as MSN or Yahoo Messenger, so that parents and network administrators can establish restricted access policies for children or staff. Aside from web configuration, the TD-W8961N also provides TR-069 and SNMP, which automatically update the device's firmware and other settings when they become available from users' ISP. All of these features help users to enhance their network's security and make network management more flexible.
