DrayTek Vigor 2860N-Plus ADSL2, I have it doing almost everything I want. Perhaps

The greatest modem router i at any time use.

I ordered this router to swap an openreach fibre modem coupled with draytek 2830. Each had previously been employed on bt infinity one and then on bt infinity two. I also use a ubiquity organization wifi with the draytek 2830. In spite of some of the inadequate testimonials this router operates a desire. It is uncomplicated to configure and there is loads of superior documentation on the draytek web-site. The one box replaces all 3 prior containers and now i can use the ubiquity method to give a substantially-extended wifi variety. The draytek also has a much far more comprehensive set of amenities i necessary i. Vpn to a different draytek router.

A really superior piece of soho stability. Great and speedy with very good options. The firewall section is a bit puzzling at very first but at the time the ‘order’ is figured out there are no extra tears. Wifi signal energy is quite excellent.

Comments from buyers

“Just wanted to quickly post, for people considering this , Rock solid reliability., That said the end result is far superior to BT Business Hub and most significantly it works “

(update firmware if neccasry).

I have it accomplishing practically every thing i want. Most likely i will get the failover operating with the loadsharing the way i would favor, but it is a wide improvement on what i experienced prior to.

Amazing router and i like draytek. Things just do the job and they are reilable. So substantially much better than the old bt hub we experienced. Delivered quickly and packaged perfectly.

Bought this router to change openreach modem and plusnet’s personal router. Superfast and quick to set up. Plusnet assisted with some of their options. Really delighted with this purchase.

A little more robust signal than my previous bt hub five with the excellent advantage that you can setup different networks/passwords for 2. four & 5ghz circuits including a guest a single. Nevertheless, the handbook is quite significantly from consumer pleasant so everything’s a wrestle – it truly is obviously not meant for retail punters. The handbook was while fairly obvious that it really should work seamlessly with both equally adsl and vdsl (bt infinity) but it would not. I won’t be able to get it to link so i’ve had to go to the default bt property hub 6 which worked straight absent but won’t be able to be configured in this kind of a specific way. So i have obtained a £240 pile of junk on my hands.

Arrived promptly and appears to do the career marketed, looks to have solved a great deal of difficulties we had been acquiring with our broadband reliability with bt hub.

We received this to exchange a bt company hub three that struggled to have an ‘up time’ of additional than fifteen minutes. It’s easy to set up and is vastly configarable. We have a lodge and have had about fifty end users logged on at one particular time with no troubles but most impressive of all is the ‘up time’ reliability as the attached pic reveals.

Flawlessly reputable small business broadband gateway. Admin is uncomplicated enough, the configuration website application is a little bit dated but functions. We had challenges with vodaphone guaranteed indicators (which use their own ipsec vpn signalling) immediately after switching to this system, but solved by disabling the vpn inspection/snooping that is on by default.

This products its truly is a single of the finest items its just so good the high-quality feels amazing and it never ever makes you regret for why you bought it believe in me this is what you have to have dont even feel about going to someplace ells.

This is a professional piece of technology that necessitates some know-how to set up. That explained the conclusion final result is considerably excellent to bt business hub and most drastically it is effective very easily with vodafone guaranteed sign. Technological support is also excellent.

Quick to established up outstanding variety.

Wonderful, unquestionably excellent assistance, so rapidly .

Setup two ssid and gadgets had trouble connecting to 5gh band often had to electrical power cycle to get it performing. Sonos units unable to connect to solitary ssid and not connecting till two ssid produced. Technically complicated to set up and handbook crap. I labored in it and a lot less complicated to set up managed swap and wifi from tp-website link.

Just required to swiftly article, for people today thinking of this for use with bt infinity, when i looked for a substitute of my outdated two box solution (openreach modem & authentic bt homehub) i go through heaps of conflicting critiques on the web about drops in sync speed and line steadiness and so forth, which set me off switching for a longtime. In any case lengthy tale short, i have had no complications at all with line velocity or steadiness. Line has been up with no interruptions for 2 weeks now, syncing at close to ample just the same speed as prior to, and i’ve managed to switch 3 containers (modem, router and 5-port swap) with the a single box :).

Arrived the following day just after my technological know-how meltdown. The previous vigor lasted for 4 many years so mustn’t grumble.

It did what i require and a lot more, my complex people are really impresses with this product.

Great router, incredibly steady operates perfectly, despite the fact that the setup is advanced / sophisticated but if you persevere with it it it really is fine. A phd in networking would be an edge.

Utilizing it for past dew months. Much far more stable and much better than the common junk supplied by the isp’s.

However, the manual is very far from user friendly so everything’s a struggle – it’s clearly not meant for retail punters.

I can’t get it to connect so i’ve had to go to the default bt home hub 6 which worked straight away but can’t be configured in such a detailed way. So i’ve got a £240 pile of junk on my hands.

    I purchased this router to replace an openreach fibre modem coupled with draytek 2830. Both had previously been used on bt infinity 1 and then on bt infinity 2. I also use a ubiquity enterprise wifi with the draytek 2830. Despite some of the poor reviews this router works a dream. It is easy to configure and there is plenty of good documentation on the draytek website. The single box replaces all three previous boxes and now i can use the ubiquity system to provide a much-extended wifi range. The draytek also has a much more comprehensive set of facilities i needed i. Vpn to another draytek router.

    Setup two ssid and devices had problem connecting to 5gh band often had to power cycle to get it working. Sonos devices unable to connect to single ssid and not connecting until two ssid created. Technically complicated to setup and manual crap. I worked in it and much easier to setup managed switch and wifi from tp-link.
