The Vigor 2862 series is both router or firewall and it is 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.
The Vigor 2862's built in DSL interface will connect to either an ADSL or VDSL2 line. If you have a second line (of either type) you can add an additional modem (or your existing modem from your other line) to the Vigor 2862's Ethernet WAN ports. You can set the two lines up in load balancing mode, where traffic is split across both of them, or into failover mode, where the other DSL line only kicks-in if your primary DSL line fails (or vice versa). ADSL makes a particularly good method of failover for VDSL because they are delivered differently. VDSL service is provided and powered by a cabinet in your street - that's where the line terminates. ADSL service, on the other hand, comes all the way from your local exchange, which could be miles away and is powered from there. That means that if your street's VDSL cabinet is damaged, its DSLAM fails or you lose power to your street, you lose VDSL, but your ADSL line comes via a different method and route, so it's less likely that both would be affected.
Robust & comprehensive firewall
Security is always taken seriously with DrayTek routers. The firewall protects against attacks including DoS (Denial of Service) attacks, IP-based attacks and access by unauthorized remote systems. Wireless, Ethernet and VPN are also protected by various protection systems. The DrayTek object-based firewall allows even more setup flexibility than ever, enabling you to create combinations of users, rules and restrictions to suit multi-departmental organizations. The Vigor 2862 also allows selective direction firewall rules of LAN to WAN, WAN to LAN or LAN to VPN.
IPv6 - next generation Internet routing
The Vigor 2862 supports IPv6 - the successor to the current IPv4 addressing system that has been used since the Internet was first created. IPv4 address space is full up and IPv6 allows for much more efficient routing and a larger address space. IPv6 is supported both from your own ISP, but if your ISP does not (yet) support IPv6, the Vigor 2862 also supports IPv6 broker/tunnel services to provide IPv6 access using either TSPC or AICCU via 3rd party IPv6 providers.
Web content filtering
The content control features of the Vigor 2862 series allow you to set restrictions on web site access, blocking download of certain file or data types, blocking specific web sites with whitelists or blacklists, blocking IM/P2P applications or other potentially harmful or wasteful content. Restrictions can be per user, per PC or universal and according to time schedules. Using the GlobalView service, you can block whole categories of web sites (e.g. gambling, adult sites etc. ), subject to an annual subscription, which is continuously updated with new or changed site categorizations or sites which have become compromised (such as infected with Malware).
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, 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. If you don't have VDSL or ADSL, the Ethernet WAN port can instead be used as your primary/only Internet connection (using NAT) so the same router can be used regardless of whether you have xDSL or Ethernet Internet connections currently. 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.
