The Vigor 2762 is an ADSL/VDSL2, Ethernet or 3G/4G router, that's ideal for your small office or home business/office. It provides connectivity to your PCs or other Internet-connected devices (laptops, tablets, games consoles, smartphones) via its 4 built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports, or using Wireless LAN (on 'n' & 'ac' models).
The firewall helps protect your network from external threats, as well as the Vigor2762's built-in Content Filtering which gives you control over what and when your local users can access or download. The Vigor 2762 series can alternatively connect to an Ethernet Internet connection, such as a cable/fiber modem (e.g. Virgin Media) instead of connecting to a ADSL/VDSL line. Compatible 3G & 4G (LTE) modems can also optionally be added to the USB port to provide backup or main Internet connectivity without any fixed line.
The DrayTek Vigor 2762ac adds 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless to your network, with up to 866Mbps on the 5GHz 11ac band, and up to 300Mbps on the 2.4GHz band, allowing devices access to the Internet from around the property. The Vigor 2762ac operates simultaneously in both the 2.4Ghz and less congested 5Ghz band so your devices can connect to either, with Band Steering to ensure that each wireless device connecting is guided to its most suitable wireless band.
Many broadband connections offered by ISPs are referred to as Fibre Broadband, although technically in many cases they're actually VDSL based connections which run over your phone line. The phone line's twisted pair telephone cable runs from the premise to a street cabinet (these are typically 4ft green boxes with a Openreach logo on) which contain a VDSL MSAN (multi-service access node) that connects to fibre infrastructure which runs to the local exchange and then on to the ISPs core network. The Vigor 2762's built-in DSL interface (WAN1) is ideal for connecting this type of VDSL based connection.
As well as being able to connect to ADSL/VDSL lines directly through the Vigor 2762's RJ11 'DSL' socket, the Vigor 2762 series can instead connect to Ethernet-fed Internet connections, such as that provided by cable modems (e.g. VirginMedia). When Ethernet WAN is enabled, LAN Port 4 switches to become your WAN port into which you can connect to your cable modem or other Ethernet feed.
The other 3 Gigabit LAN ports (1-3) remain available for normal LAN connectivity. Note, you cannot have Ethernet WAN and ADSL/VDSL enabled at the same time; if Ethernet WAN is enabled, the ADSL/VDSL port is disabled (and vice versa). The photo on the right shows the Vigor 2762 connected to a fiber modem using the Ethernet WAN Port.
The Vigor 2762 supports IPv6 - the successor to the current IPv4 addressing system that has been used since the Internet was first created. IPv4 address space is full up and IPv6 allows for much more efficient routing and a larger address space. IPv6 is supported directly from your own ISP, but if your ISP does not (yet) support IPv6, the Vigor 2762 also supports IPv6 broker/tunnel services to provide IPv6 access using either TSPC or AICCU via 3rd party IPv6 providers.
The advanced networking features of the Vigor 2762, such as the object-based Firewall, Quality of Service, Content Filtering and VLANs support both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
