Draytek Vigor 2710n review

Our Rating :
Price when reviewed : £94
inc VAT

Capable of great speeds and packed with sophisticated features for business users, but ill-fated channel bonding technology is tricky to disable.


802.11n, 4x 10/100Mbit/s Ethernet ports

Draytek is better-known for business rather than consumer products, so the Vigor 2710n’s curvy lines and upright design are something of a surprise. Underneath this pretty facade is a serious router with comprehensive support for advanced features that only experts could get excited about.

The Quick Start Guide isn’t the novice-friendly aid that comes with consumer routers. It’s information-heavy and the steps to set up an internet connection and wireless network only appear three-quarters of the way through. The web-based interface is neatly organised, and within each section there are more features than most people will ever need. All the common features are supported, such as QoS, WPS and a DMZ, as well as more advanced features such as WDS, VLANs and comprehensive content filtering.

Many of the router’s features can be controlled on a schedule, with up to fifteen time slots available to customise. Three separate sections cover filtering for applications, URLs and an extensive pre-defined list of sites arranged by category, although this requires the purchase of a license from DrayTek. Bandwidth management, VPN access, certificate management and an object-based firewall are among the other advanced options.
