D-Link DI-764 a dual-band router is a device that combines
three networking hubs in one: a four-port Ethernet switch,
an 802.11b access point, and an 802.11a access point.
It enhances performance over standard wireless products
with its 802.11b and 802.11a turbo modes. The DI-764
satisfies small and home businesses looking to build
a hybrid wireless network.
Features: A user can set up Internet-accessible virtual
servers on the home network and use them to offer e-mail
or file-sharing services to friends and family.
If you have trouble running certain Internet applications,
you can also place one computer in a DMZ outside your
firewall with unrestricted access.
It also offers filtering capabilities. The configuration
screen for filters lets you deny Internet access to
certain MAC or IP addresses. You can even enable the
filters to work during certain days and times of the
week. Connections to specific URLs or domains can be
blocked, but the filters work for only outbound connections.

you choose between 64-, 128-, and 152-bit WEP encryption.

via the Web-based configuration tool. Using the firewall
