Product Info

ER5120 Gigabit Router with Splash Screen & Bandwidth Control

Control the amount of throughput your guests have access to, without restricting them access to websites like netflix, and amazon prime video.  Installing this router is fast and easy with GNS Wireless configuration services.  We will help you setup the router so it is plug-n-play, at no additional charge.  This router will allow you setup a splash screen, or welcome screen so that when your guests connect to the wireless network, your park logo, or name will appear, where they will enter a username and password before being granted access.  Change the password at your discretion to prevent misuse.

Gigabit Router with Bandwidth Control

The TL-ER5120 Gigabit Load Balance Broadband Router from TP-LINK possesses excellent data processing capabilities and multiple powerful functions including Load Balance, Access Control, IM/P2P Blocking, DoS Defense, Bandwidth Control, Session Limit and PPPoE Server, which meet the needs of small and medium enterprises, hotels and communities with large volumes of users demanding an efficient and easy-to-manage network with high security. 

Abundant Security Features

For defense against external threats, TL-ER5120 features automatic protection to detect and block Denial of Service (DoS) attacks such as TCP/UDP/ICMP Flooding, TCP Scanning, Ping of Death and other related threats.  For better management of the internal network, TL-ER5120 allows administrators to set rules to block specific web sites and IM/P2P applications with just one click, and restrict staff to use specific services such as FTP, HTTP and SMTP.

Optimizing Bandwidth Usage

The TL-ER5120 features three freely interchangeable ports that can be set to either LAN or WAN, allowing the router to support up to four WAN ports to satisfy various Internet access requirements through one device. This means it will support 1 internet modem, or 4 internet modems.  You can setup failover, so that if one modem goes down, it will hop to the next modem.   Or you can setup the router so that it uses 2 modems, for double the speed, increasing the throughput to your guest, or end users.

Safety Minded Enterprise Investments

Professional lightning protection technology is designed to prevent electrical surges from penetrating the interior of the device, to be discharged harmlessly into the Earth. This router is designed to prevent lightning damage of up to 4Kv in the well-grounded connection conditions. This feature ensures that networking infrastructure investments remain as safe as possible from one of Mother Nature's more violent elements.

Add'l Info

Typical home based routers and wireless routers are quite slow when more then 20-30 users are online at the same time.  For an application such as a Campground, Marina or RV Park, where a client has more then 50 users online at any given time, a more commercial grade wireless router, such as the Cisco RV042 should be installed.  Although this is not a wireless router, this cisco router can be connected to high power wireless access points for long range wireless, or connected to a range extender.   More commercial grade routers can actually set an upload/download speed so that no single user can "hog" all available bandwidth.  Such a router would be the RV042, or ER5120, as shown above. These higher end routers also have faster processors to handle more users.  To see how many users are accessing your network at any given time, log into the web based configuration of the router, and navigate to the DHCP list page.  This will give you a real time estimate of how many users are on the network.  If you see a certain time of day that the network bogs down, log in to the router again, and see how many users.  Most likely you will see a large number of people using the wireless or wired network, which would be a reason to upgrade the router.

The best wireless router to use, in our recommendation is one in which you are familiar with.  Depending on the application, GNS Wireless might recommend a RV042 for one application, and may recommend a cheaper wireless n router for another application.  It really depends on how many users, what type of usage, and what type of features you would like available for your wireless network.  With these types of wireless routers, you will not be able to configure a "router repeater".  The wireless access point will control the long range wireless functionality, not the router.  Routers alone will control the connection to your cable/dsl modem, control the DHCP table, security features such as VPN and remote access, and bandwidth control.  All other features such as wifi boosters, wireless boosters, and wifi signal boosters will be the responsibility of the wireless access point.  Other quality indoor routers would be the linksys e3000, linksys e4200 and the TP-Link WR1043ND.  These would be some of the best wireless routers to use for small office, or home office use.
