Performance

1.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
DrayTek Vigor 2850n

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 DNS relay
DrayTek Vigor 2850n

With DNS relay or DNS caching, the router stores the response to queries for a short time. This means that the same query will return a quicker response if repeated from another computer in the same network.

Antennas

1.external antennas

3

More antennas result in increased signal strength. External antennas can be repositioned in order to improve the signal, and replaced with a longer antenna if needed.

Security

1.Has a built-in network firewall
DrayTek Vigor 2850n

A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.

2.Has IPsec Passthrough
DrayTek Vigor 2850n

You can enable IPsec Passthrough, to allow IPsec (IP Security Protocol) encrypted/authenticated data to pass through your router, enabling increased security.

3.Has L2TP Passthrough
DrayTek Vigor 2850n

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.

4.Has WPA2-PSK
DrayTek Vigor 2850n

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.

5.Has MAC address filtering
DrayTek Vigor 2850n

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.

6.Has Network Address Translation (NAT)
DrayTek Vigor 2850n

With NAT you can use one IP address, e.g. that of the router, for a network of devices. It can increase security and make it easier to make changes to your internal network.

Features

1.Has QoS
DrayTek Vigor 2850n

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.Network Time Protocol enabled
DrayTek Vigor 2850n

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).

3.Has Universal Plug n Play
DrayTek Vigor 2850n

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.

4.Has static routing
DrayTek Vigor 2850n

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.
