Customer Review

on 24 November 2012
Has been a source of irritation since the day I bought it, around 8 months ago. When working, it was great, but it would just freeze (actually that's the wrong word - it was far from freezing...) and only a switch off and on would get it working again. It could run for weeks without a problem, or stop twice in a weekend. I upgraded the firmware to the latest available on the Draytek site. I used it with a Soekris net4801 running FreeBSD as a router but this morning I got up to find very intermittent net connectivity. A call to my ISP revealed that they were seeing a lot of line errors. Replacing the Vigor with the standby Netgear DG834 got things working again.
The unit does get hot in operation and may have lasted longer/behaved better if I'd been able to keep it cool, but I'll replace it with something different, likely a TP-Link. Don't let me put you off too much - keep it cool and it may well work for you, and it does do a great job when it works.
