The Draytek Vigor 2862 VDSL/ADSL WiFi Modem Router is a new flagship router/firewall. It supports both ADSL or VDSL (BT Infinity™/FTTC) and is packed with professional-level features to increase security, flexibility and functionality, making it ideal as your standard router for almost any scenario.

VPN Features & SSL VPN - VPN - Linking remote offices, HQ, teleworkers and mobile staff - A feature central to DrayTek routers is its VPN (Virtual Private Networking) capabilities. A VPN enables you to link remote offices and branch offices back to HQ, or home-based/mobile teleworkers back to your office. Once connected, they have access to your office/remote resources through a secure encrypted tunnel allowing remote desktop, file sharing and seamless access to other resources and devices.

DrayTek SSL VPN - Link teleworkers and remote networks with TLS encryption - The Vigor 2862 supports up to 16 DrayTek SSL VPN tunnel connections. These are encrypted tunnels linking your teleworkers or remote DrayTek Vigor routers back to your main office using SSL/TLS technology - the same encryption that you use for secure web sites such as your bank.

Dual-band MU-MIMO Wireless ('ac' models) - The Vigor 2862ac supports simultaneous operation of the newer 5Ghz band as well as the more common 2.4Ghz band. The 5Ghz band is far less congested so if your PCs or other devices support the 5Ghz band, you can use that. The Vigor 2862ac operates both bands at the same time, so your devices can use either. New in the Vigor 2862ac operating 802.11ac is support for MU-MIMO, TX Beam Forming, 1733Mb/s Link Rate and up to 4 spatial streams.

Wireless Router-Assisted Client Mobility - A wireless network covering a large area is usually made up of several Wireless Access Points (APs), to provide coverage between rooms and avoid wireless dead spots. 
A wireless client, such as a Laptop, Phone or Tablet, when moving around such a building, is typically expected to make the decision of when to uncouple from one wireless access point and re-connect to a closer one. In some cases, a client will try to stay connected to an AP even when that client has moved outside of the AP's optimal range, which can result in longer wait times for videos to buffer and pages to load.

Wireless Security - The Vigor 2862 Series wireless models provides several independent levels of security including encryption (up to WPA2), authentication (802.1x) and methods such as MAC address locking and DHCP fixing to restrict access to authorised users only. The Web interface lets you see how many and which clients are currently connected as well as their current bandwidth usage. An 'instant' block lets you disconnect a wireless user temporarily in case of query. The Wireless VLAN facility allows you to isolate wireless clients from each other or from the 'wired' LAN.
