The DWR-956 Wireless AC1200 4G LTE Multi-WAN Router allows you to seamlessly switch to a 4G LTE mobile internet backup network when your broadband internet goes down, with download speeds of up to 150Mbps, so you can keep using the Internet without interruptions.

You can create failover connectivity if either your fixed line or mobile broadband fails. Simply connect your main broadband to the WAN Port and follow the setup instructions. The Router will instantly switch to the backup mobile Internet when you need it most, allowing you to stay connected and enjoy the Internet without interruptions so you can maintain your productivity.

The router supports speeds of up to 1200Mbps with AC Wave 2 - 300Mbps (2.4GHZ) + 900 Mbps (5GHz). Enough bandwidth for internet surfing, video chats, streaming, and social media.

The DWR-956 provides Voice over IP technology with advanced communication features, and is compatible with Telstra 4GX and Optus 4G Plus Networks, so you can make and receive calls reliably. Use the FXS phone port on the DWR-956 to connect an ordinary phone set for your VoIP phone calls, and use the Router functions to connect all of your family members or personnel to the Internet for a fast online experience throughout your home or office.

Includes built-in dual-active firewalls (SPI and NAT) to protect against malicious attacks. The latest WPA/WPA2 wireless encryption helps keep your wireless network secure and your traffic safe, helping stop unauthorised users from accessing your network.
