Summary: I needed something for a client who wanted to "block FB on my son’s computer from 8pm" and no other. After emailing OzCableGuy then buying and playing with the CMS and Firewall Filter, it turned out to be the ideal solution. I am becoming a huge fan of Draytek.
Summary: I use these all over the place in businesses I support. they are rock solid, VPN connection is excellent and gives simple content/web/url filtering options too so the boss can ban Facebook and P2P.
Summary: I selected this one after excellent information from Ozcableguy, plus questions answered promptly and accurately over email by Draytek support. I use the 2710n with a Bigpond Sierra 312U 3G dongle and a Kyocera Mita FS-1010 printer both connected to the router USB port using a "Gadget Geek" powered USB hub. The Draytek manual in the box does not cover printer installation for Windows 7 nor the 3G configuration but the information is on the Draytek website.
Summary: I spent some time looking for an ethernet router and nowhere until you have the box in your hand does this one mention ADSL - it says DSL but that is NOT ethernet. So if there are any more semi pc literates looking remember it does not work for broadband by cable only ASDL by phone line.
Summary: Just bought one of these for a number of reasons as follows: Its a lot of money for a dsl router when you can get a generic netgear/belkin etc for 50 quid that will work ok. However my main reason for this purchase is that my son is spending ever more time on the web and as a parent I feel I should protect him from the myriad volume of porn sites. This router is not for the faint hearted, it has lots of settings and some not all that obvious really.
Summary: I too bought the Draytek Vigor2710n after having a Belkin and reading reviews which rated the Draytek highly. Like the Belkin, the signal strength still seems to vary constantly which means that my Sony Blu-Ray Player doesn't always connect wirelessly. The design looks nice and sleek but the manual is not very helpful at all, even to someone who has eventually managed to set up several different routers.
Summary: I bought this router to replace a Belkin one which didn't have the bells and whistles I needed (url filtering, multiple SSIDs etc). No problem to set up (though I do work in IT so have some 'background'). However, after an hour or so broadband performance degrades so much as to become practically unusable. I have wasted hours trying to get to the bottom of it. Performance always speeds up when the router is rebooted.
Excellent router but not one for the non-technical

Summary: I needed a router that gave me better signal strength in my house. This attractive looking routers does this job very well indeed. However, this is not the easiest router to set up, and I work in IT. So I would not recommend this router for those with no access to technical help. But if you are confident technically and want a business level router then I would highly recommend this product.
Summary: Coverage is excellent, and I noticed no throughput difference between using wireless, compared with through my existing wired binatone ADSL. However, My Epson photo 340 printer however did have difficulty with both my desktop and laptop - it lost some functionality (e.g status of ink) and intermittently the PC's would lock up or throw a wobbly with the printer e.g printed the document 1.5 times - I suspect there's something in the bowels of the Draytek that I need to...
