5* Great product
Reviewed by Mark on 23/10/2010
I have had this for over 2 year and haven’t had a problem yet. I have 2 internet connections (Virgin + BT); the options available are phenomenal. You can’t compare this to the Belkin or Netgear routers, this offers much more; you can only compare this against high end enterprise devices from people like Cisco. If you are a techie or have a small business then this is a must!
5* Great unit. You wont be dissapointed.

Ive had one since December and like all the other Drayteks I have owned over the last 10? years it was simple to set up and works perfectly. Im here today to buy another one for my dad which replace his aeging Vigor2600+. Ive tried all brands and Draytek are the best IMHO. My X had a really crappy (BT) ADSL broadband connection, no router would work with it. BT said the service was fine haha. Only the Draytek would pick up a signal and allow a diagnostic. The BT router and a Dlink router.. (which I rate to be a decent cheap router by the way) failed to get any signal. Ive never tried a Cisco yet so maybe a better router than the Draytek exists but Cisco are mega bucks? Buy Draytek and scorn all lesser makes.
4* Very good router if you need the features at offers
Reviewed by YG on 20/11/2009
I bought this router as I wanted more features and control compared to your typical £80 router.

Basic configuration is easy, with your typical menus to connect to the internet. Same thing for network and wifi settings - the setup is easy and you do not have to step into the tons of additional options unless you want to. The UI is ugly compared to many modern routers though.

The ADSL + 3G connections work well (BT ADSL and Vodafone 3G dongle) with automatic switchover to 3G if the ADSL drops. Cool!

I have not tried most of the advanced settings but the configuration options look pretty straightforward if you know what you are doing.

Bottom line: for simple wifi and ADSL connection you can buy good routers for 1/2 the price. However, if you are looking for more advanced ADSL/3G/wifi/firewall/VPN - this is a very good piece of kit which is not overpriced considering all the things it can do.
3* High hopes dashed
Reviewed by Mike on 22/05/2008
Expected a lot from this high spec router but a) it doesn't have any useful traffic stats display for FUP compliance unless an SNMP client monitors it 24x7, b) it DHCP allocated same ip address to multiple MAC addresses, c) wireless connection just drops for no apparent reason (where BT2700HGV works perfectly), d) ADSL speed is 20% less than BT router, e) documentation badly written and unhelpful for the complex user interface.
1* SH*TTY ROUTER
Reviewed by George on 01/08/2011
This router is the worst I have ever used... cost me in excess of £150, so I was expecting something legendary... especially with the DrayTek logo on it!

Anyway, cut a long story short... if the networking genius dinosaurs at DrayTek still haven't evolved to be able to do Wireless properly, then they simply shouldn't make Wireless products... This thing can't sustain a proper wireless connection despite trying loads of different settings, and even waiting over a year for new firmware upgrades, with none of them solving the problems... This absolutely sucks... Seriously, get a flippin cheap chinese Huawei or whatever they're called, it'll do you better!
