I am not sure of how many features are on the router configuration. 
 This is a D-Link 604 and the "web page" I can get to from the iMac has 
the following tab pages:

Home, Advanced, Tools, Status, and Help.

On each tab page are several buttons:

Home has Wizard, WAN, LAN, DHCP
Advanced has  Virtual Server, Applications, Filters, Firewall, and DMZ
Tools has Admin, Time, System, Firmware and Misc.
Status has Device Info, Log and Stats
Help has only a menu:

Setup Wizard,
WAN settings
Lan Settings
DHCP server
Virtual server,
Special applications
Firewall rules
Administrator settings
System time
System Settings
Firmware upgrade
Miscellaneous items
Device information
Log, and Traffic statistics

There is also an faq
