Vigor 2920 Series Router Firewall

The Vigor 2920 series is a dual-WAN port Firewall Router, also supporting IPv6 - the next generation Internet system (click IPv6 tab below for moe information).

Robust & Comprehensive Firewall

Security is a major feature Vigor 2920 Series. The firewall features measures for protection against attacks including DoS (Denial of Service) attacks, IP-based attacks and access by unauthorised remote systems. Wireless, Ethernet and VPN are also protected by various protection systems (see later). The DrayTek object-based firewall allows vast flexibility, enabling you to create combinations of users, rules and restrictions to suit multi-departmental organisations.

Content control features of the firewall allow you to set restrictions on web site access, blocking download of certain file types, blocking specific web sites, blocking IM/P2P applications or other potentially harmful or wasteful content. Filtering using web site categorisations enable you to block whole categories of web sites (e.g. gambling, adult sites etc.), subject to subscription.

Dual-WAN Load Balancing & Backup

Either (or both) Ethernet WAN ports on the Vigor 2920 can be connected to an ADSL modem, cable modem or any other Ethernet-based Internet feed. When you are using both ports, the secondary interface can be used either for WAN-Backup or load balancing.

WAN-Backup provides contingenry (redundancy) in cases of your primary feed or ISP suffering temporary outage. Internet Traffic will be temporarily routed via the secondary Internet access. When normal services is restored to your primary ADSL line, all traffic is switch back to that.

In load-balancing mode, the Vigor 2920 will make use of both of your WAN feeds together, spreading your Internet traffic across both either as equally as possible or according to user-configurable rules. For example, you might want all of your VoIP traffic to be routed only through one ISP connection.

The Vigor 2920's USB port provides an alternative connection method for Internet backup by connecting to a compatible USB modem (or cellphone) for access to the high speed 3G cellular networks from UK providers such as Vodafone, O2, Orange, 3 and T-Mobile. The 3G access method can be used as your primary/only Internet connection, ideal for temporary locations, mobile applications or where broadband access is not available.

Note : For WAN failover you can use only one method at a time, e.g. Ethernet, 3G.
