Performance

1.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

802.11n is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors - a, b and g.

2.Has dual-band technology
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

Dual-band devices can transmit data quickly on the newest 5GHz band, using recent standards (eg. 802.11n, 802.11ac). They can also use the older 2.4GHz band if needed.

3.internal storage

0MB

Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has a URL filter
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

URL filters are particularly useful if you want to allow different web access depending on the time of day, for instance allowing employees to use personal email outside of working hours.

3.Has a static IP address
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

Static IP addresses remain consistent on each connection. This means the IP address can be used to allow remote access/configuration. Most home devices have a dynamic IP address, whereas larger companies usually use a static IP address.

4.Has L2TP Passthrough
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

You can enable L2TP Passthrough. L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) is a VPN (Virtual Private Network) protocol for carrying data from one device to another securely over the Internet.

5.Has WPA2-PSK
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

WPA2-PSK is a method of securing your network using WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) as well as a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) password. This was designed for home users without an enterprise authentication server.

6.Has MAC address filtering
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

This is a security feature in which network access is granted to devices based on their unique MAC address. It can provide increased security, but it can be a risk if the user loses the device.

Features

1.Has QoS
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

With (QoS) Quality of Service, you can optimise performance by deciding which traffic to prioritise when a bottleneck occurs. You can decide which traffic is important based on things like IP address and type of Internet service.

2.IPv6 enabled
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

IPv6 is a newer version of the Internet Protocol. IPv6 operates as a separate network to IPv4, and has the capacity for more IP addresses and more features.

3.Network Time Protocol enabled
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

With Network Time Protocol (NTP) you can ensure that devices across a network display the exact same time and date, using UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).

4.Has dynamic routing
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

Dynamic routing is useful if you need to configure several routers, as they can automatically find network destinations and best routes, as well as sharing information between routers. They can reroute automatically if there is a fault somewhere.

5.Has Universal Plug n Play
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

Universal Plug n Play (UPnP) is a set of networking protocols that permits networked devices, such as PCs, printers, Internet gateways, Wi-Fi access points and mobile devices to find each other and exchange information on the network.

6.Has static routing
DrayTek Vigor 2830n

Static routing is a simple form of routing, recommended if you have just one, or a small number, of routers to connect. They need to be configured and updated manually.
