    • Overview

      D-Link VPN Routers are secure, high performance networking solutions that address the growing needs of small and medium businesses. The integrated high-speed IEEE 802.11n wireless technology in the DSR-150N, DSR-250N and DSR-500N routers offers comparable performance to traditional wired networks, but with fewer limitations. Each router provides optimal network security via features such as Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnels, IP Security (IPSec), Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP), Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP), Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE), and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). These routers also allow you to empower your road warriors with clientless remote access anywhere and anytime using SSL VPN tunnels.
    • Reliable Internet Connectivity

      The DSR-500/500N include dual-WAN Gigabit Ethernet ports that provide policy-based service management to ensure maximum productivity for your business operations. The failover feature maintains data traffic without disconnecting when a landline connection is lost. The Outbound Load Balancing feature adjusts outgoing traffic across two WAN interfaces and optimizes system performance, resulting in high availability. The second WAN port can be configured as a DMZ port, allowing you to isolate servers from your LAN.

    • Robust VPN Features

      A fully featured virtual private network (VPN) provides your mobile workers and branch offices with a secure link to your network. The DSR-150/150N, DSR-250/250N, DSR-500/500N are capable of simultaneously managing 1, 5 or 10, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN tunnels respectively, as well as 5, 10 or 15 Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) tunnels, empowering your mobile users by providing remote access to a central corporate database. Site-to-site VPN tunnels use IP Security (IPSec) Protocol, Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP), or Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) to facilitate branch office connectivity through encrypted virtual links. The DSR-150/150N simultaneously supports up to 10 IPSec VPN tunnels plus 10 additional PPTP/L2TP tunnels. The DSR-250/250N and DSR-500/500N simultaneously support up to 25 and 35 IPSec VPN tunnels respectively, and 25 additional PPTP/L2TP tunnels.
    • Efficient Green Technology

      As a responsible member of the global community, D-Link is devoted to providing ecofriendly products.  D-Link Green Wi-Fi and D-Link Green Ethernet features save power and help cut energy costs. The D-Link Green WLAN Scheduler shuts down your wireless network automatically according to a schedule you define, allowing you to turn off your wireless network during off-peak hours, saving energy and keeping your network secure.

    • The D-Link Green Ethernet feature can detect the length of the cables connected to the router and can adjust power usage accordingly to save energy automatically without sacrificing performance. It can also detect if a link is down on a port and automatically puts that port into a sleep mode, reducing the amount of power used. In addition, compliance with RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) directives make D-Link Green certified devices an environmentally responsible choice.
    • Dynamic Web Content Filtering (Subscription Required)

      Dynamic Content Filtering is a powerful feature that enables the administrator to allow or block access to web sites depending on the category they have been classified into by an automatic classification service. Dynamic content filtering requires a minimum of administration effort and has very high accuracy.
    • Limited Lifetime Warranty

      D-Link offers a Limited Lifetime Warranty on the DSR Series Unified Services Routers to further its commitment to product quality and long-term customer confidence.
