Rushed job

Olaf von Rein, dabs.com

  • Summary: The antenna are on the opposite side to the LAN ports. The box really wants to stand upright. Fine if you hang it on a wall. But if you do so, how are you ever gonna see the diagnostics LEDs? Granted, they aren't essential but it would still be nice if one could actually see them.

*** 2.4Ghz Only ****

DaveB, Amazon
8 June 2012
  • Summary: I'm sure this is a very good router, but do note that it is not dual band as described above. It supports 2.4Ghz only. This applies to the "n" and "Vn" models. The models with a "plus" suffix are dual band.

Draytek Vigor 2830n-plus

Stephen, Misco
30 April 2012
  • Summary: Product easy to setup for domestic/home office use, but also has many more advanced facilities for more complex requirements. Wi-Fi setup in particular is very straightforward, in contrast other products in my experience have taken a lot of work to get devices to reliably connect with them.

  • Summary: Took a while to set up but then I'm no expert. I got work & guest wireless set up, secured & isolated easily enough. Managed to get 3G failover working quickly - had no idea what settings to type into teh boxes so just plugged in my Orange dongle and it worked!

  • Summary: I was initially going to mark the value down a notch as this is a relatively expensive piece of kit, but on hindsight, you get so many more features than standard routers, that I feel it would be unjust.

DrayTek 2830n

Terry, Misco
11 September 2011
  • Summary: Misco. service/delivery is first class. This modem/router is not for the faint hearted. The installation and setup is difficult and needs a good IT background it is not helped by inadequate documentation. Setting up port-forwarding is particularly difficult with little help in the manual.
