This listing is for the Draytek Vigor 2860ac dual band wireless router/firewall that can support either ADSL or VDSL (BT Infinity/FTTC services). This makes the Vigor 2860ac ideal for users with ADSL now who might upgrade to VDSL later. Alternative WAN ports can also provide connectivity to Ethernet feeds, secondary xDSL modems or a 3G/4G cellular service using a compatible USB adapter or modem. This router series includes support for professional features such as VLAN tagging, QoS, SSL VPN, IPv6 addressing, 6-port Gigabit Ethernet switch and built-in dual band wireless. Packed with professional-level features, the Vigor 2860ac offers truly comprehensive DSL connectivity and security. Compatible with all UK variants of ADSL (including ADSL2+ and Annex M), VDSL and VDSL2, the Vigor 2860ac can also be used for cable-modem, leased line and EFM applications using its Gigabit Ethernet WAN port. On VDSL, the Vigor 2860ac supports the very latest services for speeds up to 80Mb/s (dependent on line quality and length). The Vigor 2860ac supports simultaneous dual band operation in both the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands at the 802.11n wireless LAN specification and has been certified by the WiFi alliance for cross compatibility and WiFi compliance (including WPA/WPA2 and WMM). The Vigor 2860ac includes a hardware co-processor for WiFi to ensure best performance and encryption processing. The Vigor2860ac model provides support for high speed Wireless AC1600 (802.11ac) operation in 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands (up to 300Mbps @2.4GHz 11n and up to 1300Mbps @5GHz 11ac). The 5Ghz band is far less congested so if your PCs or other devices support the 5Ghz band, you can use that. The Vigor2860ac operates both bands at the same time, so your devices can use either. If you want to add 5Ghz band support to your PC/laptop, you can use the DrayTek N65 USB adaptor. The 2860ac supports IPv6 operation on any of the WAN ports and simultaneous (concurrent) operation with IPv4 (“Dual Stack”).

A worthy alternative I’ve been trying to solve my wi-fi woes for quite a long time and I have tried many different routers from the likes of ASUS, Buffalo, Zyxel and Billion. All had some disappointing aspects, whether it was lack of some important features or unreliable wi-fi, so I thought I would pay extra and go for (hopefully) something better, having also tried powerline adapters and range extenders without complete success.My first impression of the 2860ac was that it seemed to be well-made and…

An excellent “top end” home VDSL router Let’s get the price out of the way first. If you want the features it is worth the money, if you don’t then an ISP router or a consumer “aftermarket” router is what you want.I bought a Draytek 2820 about 5 years ago and it has been superbly stable and “just worked”. I upgraded to “fibre” and used the 2820 with an Openreach modem for a while but I wanted more ports on the router and a “one box” solution.I bought the 2860 and uploaded a…

I live nearly 5 miles from my telephone exchange and need rock solid ADSL performance. If we stop there than I would happily give the 2860AC five stars for the 20% internet speed boost and much steadier connection than the TP-Link modem it replaces. The WiFi power is marginally better but not exceptional with a couple of bars power at the corners of a reasonable size 4 bed house from a rather less than optimal position.The set up menus are reasonably user-friendly with sensible default…
