General info

1.LAN ports


With more LAN ports you are able to connect more computers to the network directly using LAN cables.
2.warranty period


When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
3.WAN ports


A WAN (Wider Area Network) port is most commonly used to connect the router to the internet. It can also be used to connect to an external private network.


We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
5.USB ports


With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.


We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.


1.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
DrayTek Vigor 2850n
Wi-Fi 4 (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.


1.external antennas


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.


1.Has a built-in network firewall
DrayTek Vigor 2850n
A network firewall protects a computer network from unauthorized access.
2.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.
3.Has SPI intrusion protection
DrayTek Vigor 2850n
All incoming traffic will be blocked except for those types selected in the Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) section. This helps to protect your network from unwanted traffic.
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 DoS protection
DrayTek Vigor 2850n
DoS protection guards a content network against DoS (Denial of Service) attacks. These flood a network with server requests, slowing overall traffic and potentially causing long term interruptions.
6.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.


1.Has QoS
DrayTek Vigor 2850n
With (QoS) Quality of Service, you can optimize performance by deciding which traffic to prioritize when a bottleneck occurs. You can decide which traffic is important based on things like IP address and the type of internet service.
2.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.
3.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).
4.operating power consumption


How much power the device consumes when it's switched on.
5.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.
