Vigor 2830 Series ADSL Router Firewall
The Vigor2830 is the latest generation of our flagship ADSL router/firewall range, winner of the PC Pro wireless router award for three years in a row. This latest series includes support for professional features such as VLAN tagging, Gigabit Ethernet and WiFi (ess models). The Vigor 2830's secondary WAN interface can be connected to other modems now or later (e.g. a second ADSL, BT Infinity or cable modem etc.).
Packed with features, the Vigor 2830 offers truly comprehensive ADSL connectivity and security.
Compatible with all variants of ADSL (including ADSLMax, ADSL2+ and Annex M) the Vigor 2830 can also be used for cable-modem and leased line applications using its additional gigabit ethernet WAN port. A four port Gigabit switch on the LAN side provides high speed connectivity for your server or other local PCs, for the highest speed local data transfer. Security features include content filtering, web application controls and new object based firewall management system.
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 unauthorised remote systems. Wireless, Ethernet and VPN are also protected by various protection systems. The latest ('Version 3') 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 organisations. The Vigor 2830 now also allows selective direction firewall rules of LAN to WAN, WAN to LAN or LAN to VPN. In addition, QoS (Quality of Service Assurance) can now be selectively applied to specific users.
IPv6 - Next Generation Internet Routing
The Vigor 2830 now 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 2850 also supports IPv6 broker/tunnel services to provide IPv6 access using either TSPC or AICCU via 3rd party IPv6 providers. To learn all about IPv6, you can get our book here.
IPv6 on the Vigor 2830 provides the following features:
- Operation on any one of the WAN ports (ADSL, VDSL, Ethernet or 3G)
- Connectivity to direct native IPv6 ISPs
- Built-in tunnelling to 3rd party IPv6 brokers supporting TSPC or AICCU methods
- Default stateful firewall for all IPv6 LAN Clients/Devices
- DHCPv6 Client or Static IPv6 Client
- DHCPv6 & RADVD for client configuration
- IP Filtering Rules
- QoS for IPv6 with DiffServ
- Router Management over IPv6 (Telnet/HTTP) with IPv6 Access List
- Simultaneous (concurrent) operation with IPv4 ("Dual-Stack")
- Other router features are available on IPv4 only currently
