Draytek Vigor 2710n review

Our Rating :
Price when reviewed : £94
inc VAT

Capable of great speeds and packed with sophisticated features for business users, but ill-fated channel bonding technology is tricky to disable.


802.11n, 4x 10/100Mbit/s Ethernet ports

It’s even possible to log into the Vigor 2710n using telnet, a command-line tool for expert users. We had to resort to this method to turn off channel bonding, as there’s no option to toggle this in the interface. This is a huge black mark, as channel bonding causes interference to neighbouring networks.

Draytek Vigor 2710n

After we’d disabled channel bonding, the 2710n averaged a respectable 35Mbit/s at close-to-medium range in our wireless tests, and delivered an impressive 10Mbit/s at 20m. Using Draytek’s own Vigor N61 adaptor (£40), it managed over 60Mb/s on average at close-to-medium range, which is a staggering improvement but at a high cost.

The sophistication and flexibility of the Vigor 2710n makes it ideal for technically experienced business users, but the difficulty in turning off channel bonding is a major setback. We recommend that business users go for the Billion BiPAC 7800N, which is more expensive but even faster and easier to use.
