Draytek Vigor 2760n review

Our Rating :
Price when reviewed : £120

Plenty of business-friendly features and VDSL support is a welcome inclusion, but the Vigor 2760n's wireless connectivity is limited


Modem: ADSL2+, VDSL2, Wi-Fi standard: 802.11n, Stated speed: Not Stated, USB ports: 2x USB, Wall mountable: Yes



As we expected, wireless performance was rather disappointing. With no 802.11ac, or even 5GHz wireless N, we were limited to 802.11n on the 2.4GHz frequency. At 10m we only managed 11.8MB/s, and this dropped to a very low 5.3MB/s at 25m. There was no improvement by disabling channel bonding, and it can’t auto-detect the best wireless channel to use, meaning you’ll need to use a third party wireless signal strength tester to check for interference.

Moving as close to the router as possible, we achieved a more respectable 52MB/s, meaning you should be able to work in the same room at reasonable speeds. Of course, our testing environment is a worst case scenario, so speeds will likely improve in areas with less interference from other wireless networks and devices.

The 2760Vn can run up to four separate wireless networks, with one designated as a guest network by default. You can isolate each network from the others and direct them to separate VPNs. The web interface also has a variety of port forwarding and static IP options, optional content filters to prevent access to specific content, although it’s still a convoluted process and the UI doesn’t provide much in the way of assistance. The whole interface is rather basic, with the only helpful diagram replicating the lights on the front of the router for diagnosing issues. Unless you’re familiar with IP Object Profiles and Trusted CA Certificates, you’ll need to frequently refer to the manual to truly make use of all the 2760Vn’s features. It’s also rarely obvious when additional menus are buried within links or shortcuts, meaning you’ll spend a lot of time searching for a particular setting.


Speed was never going to be the 2760n’s defining feature, but we were still disappointed by wireless performance. However, it makes up for this in other ways, particularly if you’re looking for an all-in-one router to manage VOIP accounts or control multiple virtual networks for a small office. That being said, home users will be better off with the much faster, much friendlier ZyXEL NBG6716.
