Actiontec MI424WR Revision E Wireless Broadband Router
Creative Solutions for the Digital Life™
Next Generation
ctiontec continues its string of impressive technological
advances with the introduction of its next generation
Wireless Broadband Router. The First “Smart Home
Gateway”, the Wireless Broadband Router, packs in more features
and performance capabilities that any other home router on
the market. It is the first device to feature a dual-core, 64-bit
processor that allows it to support home networking speeds
up to 1 Gbps and permits digital entertainment and information
content to be transmitted and distributed to multiple devices
in the home over coaxial cable.
The First “Smart Home Gateway”
Actiontec’s next generation Wireless Broadband Router sets a
new industry benchmark for performance. As a result, service
providers can increase service speeds up to 1 Gbps to meet the
needs of an increasingly sophisticated consumer market. Able
to support multiple value-added, bandwidth-intensive
applications, this router has become more than just a simple
router. It can handle multiple high-throughput media streams
simultaneously, including standard and HDTV-based video
programming and feed personal video recording functionality
from multiple HD set top boxes or other digital storage
devices to multiple TVs in the house. It can also administrate
most Internet activities including parental controls, online
gaming, music, live sports, children’s entertainments and on
demand movies. The Wireless Broadband router also supports
Ethernet and Wi-Fi as well as coax networking, and it allows
telcos to assign bandwidth priorities for data, video on demand
and voice over IP traffic to ensure quality of service in triple
and quad play environments.
The Industry’s First Dual-core 64-bit Processor
Actiontec’s router features an advanced hardware design
including an industry-first 64-bit, dual core processor. The
Model # MI424WR Rev. E
router’s 64-bit architecture provides a substantial performance
improvement over the 32-bit devices sold today. The router’s
latest MIPS core offers further performance improvement and
additional instructions for networking applications reducing
the number of cycles needed for even greater CPU efficiency.
Additionally, the router features hardware-level Quality of
Service (QoS) with eight input channels and eight output
channels. This innovative design frees the CPU for other
bandwidth needs, and ensures that providers can deliver multiple
high quality video streams without any dropped frames,
frozen frames, or other performance issues that can degrade
IP video services.
Protection and Security
With all that data coming in, the security features had better
be first rate, and the Wireless Broadband Router doesn’t
disappoint. The router ships with wireless encryption using
WEP turned on by default and supports WPA and WPA2
encryptions. The router offers enterprise-level security,
including a fully customizable firewall with Stateful Packet
Inspection, denial of service protection, content filtering, and
intrusion detection to keep unwanted visitors from accessing
the user’s network. The Wireless Broadband Router also offers
Parental control capabilities, including user-defined site
blocking by URL and keyword, the ability to customize filtering
policies for each computer, and user notification of attempted
access to restricted sites.
