4.0 out of 5 stars Wi-Fi dead on the first unit, but...., 26 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Draytek Vigor 2830N ADSL2/2+ Wireless 11n Router Firewall & 4 Gigabit LAN Ports (Personal Computers)
The first unit I bought was defective, all options for Wi-Fi were absent in the configuration menus.
The returns process was handled in reasonable time and I ended up spending extra on a 2830N+ else where. The replacement is giving a stronger Wi-Fi signal than the high end £100-£120 Netgear I had before but it still fails to maintain full signal strength down the 3 floors of our house even though I have adjusted the Wi-Fi aerials to spread the signal in the right direction.
The configuration options are very comprehensive though I would say the "automatic" set up process was not as automatic the the previous Netgear which may put off less technical people. The user guide provides enough detail to complete the set up provided you know or can obtain technical details like Primary and Secondary DNS server addresses from your internet service provider.
In fairness this is aimed at small and medium sized businesses who are likely to have IT technical support people around to set it up.
