LEVEL One FBR-1461 v2


The FBR-1461 ADSL2+ Modem/Router by LevelOne is an all-in-one unit that combines an ADSL2/2+ modem, router and Ethernet network switch to provide everything you need to get the machines on your network connected to the Internet over an ADSL broadband connection.

The FBR-1461 router complies with ADSL2+ standards for deployment worldwide and supports downstream rates of up to 24 Mbps and upstream rates of up to 1 Mbps. Designed for small office, home office and residential users, the router enables even faster Internet connections. You can enjoy ADSL services and broadband multimedia applications such as interactive gaming, video streaming and real-time audio much easier and faster than ever before.

The FBR-1461 supports PPPoA (RFC 2364 – PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) over ATM Adaptation Layer 5), RFC 1483 encapsulation over ATM (bridged or routed), PPP over Ethernet (RFC 2516) to establish a connection with your ISP. Your new router also supports VC-based and LLC-based multiplexing.

The perfect solution for connecting a small group of PCs to a high-speed broadband Internet connection, the FBR-1461 allows multiple users to have high-speed Internet access simultaneously.

Your new router also serves as an Internet firewall, protecting your network from access by outside users. Not only does it provide a natural firewall function with Network Address Translation (NAT), it also provides rich firewall features to secure your network. All incoming data packets are monitored and filtered. You can also configure your new router to block internal users from accessing the Internet.

The FBR-1461 provides two levels of security support. First, it masks LAN IP addresses making them invisible to outside users on the Internet, so it is much more difficult for a hacker to target a machine on your network. Second, it can block and redirect certain ports to limit the services that outside users can access. To ensure that games and other Internet applications run properly, you can open specific ports for outside users to access internal services on your network.

The Integrated DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol) client and server services allow multiple users to get IP addresses automatically when the router boots up. Simply set local machines as a DHCP client to accept a dynamically assigned IP address from the DHCP server and reboot. Each time a local machine is powered up; the router recognizes it and assigns an IP address to instantly connect it to the LAN.

For advanced users, Virtual Service (port mapping) functions allow the product to provide limited visibility to local machines with specific services for outside users. For instance, a dedicated web server can be connected to the Internet via the router and then incoming requests for web pages that are received by the router can be rerouted to your dedicated local web server, even though the server now has a different IP address.

Virtual Server can also be used to re-task services to multiple servers. For instance, you can set the router to allow separated FTP, Web, and Multiplayer game servers to share the same Internet-visible IP address while still protecting the servers and LAN users from hackers.


Express Internet Access – ADSL2/2+ capable

The FBR-1461 complies with ADSL worldwide standards. Supporting downstream rates of 8Mbps with ADSL, the router is capable of up to 12/24 Mbps with ADSL2/2+, and upstream rates of up to 1 Mbps. Users enjoy not only high-speed ADSL services but also broadband multimedia applications such as interactive gaming, video streaming and real-time audio which are easier and faster than ever. The router is compliant with Multi-Mode standard (ANSI T1.413, Issue 2; G.dmt (ITU G.992.1); G.hs (ITU G994.1); G.dmt.bis (ITU G.992.3); and G.dmt.bisplus (ITU G.992.5)

Fast Ethernet Switch
A 4-port 10/100Mbps fast Ethernet switch is built-in with automatic switching between MDI and MDI-X for 10Base-T and 100Base-TX ports, with auto detection allowing you to use either straight or cross-over Ethernet cables.

Multi-Protocol to Establish a Connection
The router supports PPPoA (RFC 2364 - PPP over ATM Adaptation Layer 5), RFC 1483 encapsulation over ATM (bridged or routed), PPP over Ethernet (RFC 2516) to establish a connection with an ISP. The router also supports VC-based and LLC-based multiplexing.

Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) and UPnP NAT Traversal
This protocol is used to enable simple and robust connectivity among stand-alone devices and PCs from many different vendors, and it makes setting up a network simple and affordable. UPnP architecture leverages TCP/IP and the Web to enable proximity networking in addition to control and data transfer among networked devices. With this feature enabled, you can seamlessly connect to Net Meeting or MSN Messenger.

Network Address Translation
Network Address Translation (NAT) allows multiple users to access outside resources such as the Internet simultaneously with one IP address/one Internet access account. Many application layer gateways (ALG) are supported such as web browser, ICQ, FTP, Telnet, E-mail, News, Net2phone, Ping, NetMeeting, IP phone and others.

NAT technology supports simple firewalls and provides options for blocking access from the Internet, like Telnet, FTP, TFTP, WEB, SNMP and IGMP.

Domain Name System Relay
Domain Name System (DNS) relay provides an easy way to map a domain name with a user-friendly name such as www.google.com with an IP address. When a local machine sets its DNS server to the router‟s IP address, every DNS conversion request packet from the PC to this router is forwarded to the real DNS on the outside network.

Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS)
The Dynamic DNS service allows you to alias a dynamic IP address to a static hostname. This dynamic IP address is the WAN IP address. To use the service, you must first apply for an account from a DDNS service such as http://www.dyndns.org/.

PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE)
The FBR-1461 provides an embedded PPPoE client function to establish a connection. You get greater access speed without changing the operation concept, while sharing the same ISP account and paying for one access account. No PPPoE client software is required for the local computer. Automatic Reconnect and Disconnect Timeout (Idle Timer) functions are also provided.

Quality of Service (QoS)
QoS gives you full control over which types of outgoing data traffic should be given priority by the router, ensuring important data like gaming packets, customer information, or management information move through the router at lightning speed, even under heavy load. The QoS features are configurable by Internal IP address, External IP address, protocol, and port. You can throttle the speed at which different types of outgoing data pass through the router, to ensure P2P users don‟t saturate upload bandwidth, or office browsing doesn‟t bring client web serving to a halt. In addition, or alternatively, you can simply change the priority of different types of upload data and let the router sort out the actual speeds.

Virtual Server:
You can specify which services are visible to outside users. The router detects an incoming service request and forwards it to the specific local computer for handling. For example, you can assign a PC in a LAN to act as a Web server inside and expose it to the outside network. Outside users can browse inside the web server directly while it is protected by NAT. A DMZ host setting is also provided for local computers exposed to the outside Internet network.

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
Client and Server On a WAN site, the DHCP client obtains an IP address from the Internet Service Provider (ISP) automatically. On a LAN site, the DHCP server allocates a range of client IP addresses, including subnet masks and DNS IP addresses and distributes them to local computers. This provides an easy way to manage the local IP network.

Rich Packet Filtering
This feature filters the packet based on IP addresses as well as Port numbers. Filtering packets to and from the Internet provides a higher level of security control.

Web-based GUI
A web-based GUI offers easy configuration and management. It also supports remote management capability for remote users to configure and manage this product.

Firmware Upgradeable
You can upgrade the router with the latest firmware through its web-based GUI.
