Product Overview Vigor 2862 Series VDSL/ADSL Router Firewall

The Vigor 2862 series is our new flagship router/firewall. Exact feature support varies by model (see specification tab). It is what we've called the 'Ultimate DSL router' supporting both ADSL or VDSL (BT Infinity™/FTTC) and packed with professional level features to increase security, flexibility and functionality, making it ideal as your standard router for almost any scenario.

As well as ADSL/VDSL support, alternative WAN ports can instead provide connectivity to Ethenet feeds (Gigabit WAN2 is switchable with LAN Port 5*), secondary xDSL modems or a 3G/4G cellular service using a supported USB adapter (or there is the Vigor 2862Ln model with 3G/4G/LTE built-in). These multiple LAN feeds can be combined for failover or load-balancing.

This latest router series includes support for other professional features such as VLAN tagging, QoS (Quality of Service Assurance), High Availability, DNS Filter, Policy Based Routing, and User Access Control. Hotspot features with customisable branding and wording which can be applied to guest network VLANs & SSIDs. If you deploy DrayTek Wireless Access Points, the Vigor 2862 can act as the Central Management controller (click on any of those links for an explanation of each feature).

A 5-port Gigabit Ethernet switch on the LAN side provides high speed connectivity for your server, other local PCs or for uplink to a larger Ethernet switch. Comprehensive security features include content filtering, web application controls and an object based firewall management system. Port 5 is switchable with 'WAN2' to use it as an Ethernet WAN port instead of a LAN port*.
*requires f/w 3.8.8 or later, otherwise 5th Ethernet port is for WAN2 only.

WAN Load Balancing & Backup
The Vigor 2862 features multiple methods of WAN connectivity - ADSL/VDSL, Ethernet, USB port for connection of a 3G/4G modem, optional built-in 3G/4G or (on wireless models) and Wireless WAN. The Ethernet port can connect to a second ADSL/VDSL modem (e.g. Vigor 130), a cable modem or any other Ethernet-based Internet feed. The multiple WAN interfaces can be used either for WAN-Backup or Load-Balancing. WAN-Backup provides contingency (redundancy) in case of your primary ADSL line or ISP suffering temporary outage). Internet Traffic will be temporarily routed via the secondary Internet access. When normal service is restored to your primary line, all traffic is switched back to that

Internet Connection via Wireless
The USB port provides Internet connectivity (main, backup or load balanced) by connecting to a compatible USB modem (or cellphone) for access to the high speed 3G/4G/LTE cellular networks from UK providers such as Vodafone, O2, 3 and EE. If you don't have DSL at all, the USB/3G/4G access method can be used as your primary/only Internet connection, ideal for temporary locations, mobile applications or where broadband access is not available. Alternatively, if you will be making more regular use of 3G/4G/LTE, consider the Vigor 2862Ln model with its built-in cellular modem & SIM slot.

Most commonly, your router will connect to the Internet via fixed line (ADSL, VDSL, cable) or cellular (3G/4G/LTE) but the wireless models for the Vigor 2862 series, such as the Vigor 2862ac can use a Wireless connection as its WAN (Internet) feed, using it either as a primary or backup Internet connection.

For instance, the Vigor 2862ac can connect to your mobile phones wireless hotspot facility and use that as an Internet connection, or load balancing it with wired connections.

User Management/Authentication

The Vigor 2862 has built-in user management which allows you to provide conditional internet access with Time and Data usage quotas to different users, based on their own unique login (stored in the router, or on an external Radius server)

Importantly, when using this feature, your own Wireless LAN still works - i.e. the wireless base facility provided to your laptops/phones/tablets by the Vigor router still works.

DrayTek Vigor 2862ac VDSL/ADSL 3G/4G/LTE Router Firewall with 5 Gigabit LAN Ports, with USB NAS USB Modem Support is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This unit has everything one needs to see how your connected and who is connected I just purchased this unit yesterday, it did not take long to set up, The security of this unit is extremely good, not only to what’s on the internet DSL side but on the Wi-Fi side as well, You can check your connection very easy from dropdown menu at the click of the mouse, I was indeed happy to see an improvement is speed performance, getting that bit extra from my ISP, there is a lot you can do with this unit,& I dare say a lot more than need, but I wanted to buy a Top High End VDSL / ADSL Router that will also suport FTTC when my ISP will come out with it shortly, I would recommend getting larger antenna's if your suffer from a lot of co channel interference, but still no problems with this unit whatsoever, I was getting around 66MBs on fibre Broadband with this unit on Wi-Fi, & I am really surrounded by WiFi from other apartments, Very well built Professional Unit, that you can do a lot with, I could see what web sites my Children are on etc., safety features on this unit are brilliant,
