Draytek 2766 G.FAST, VDSL or Ethernet WAN Router with WiFi 802.11ac
The DrayTek Vigor 2766ac Triple-WAN G.Fast/VDSL2/ADSL WiFi 5 Router is ideal for Small Office and Home Office networks. It features powerful Firewall and Content Filtering, configurable Quality of Service and an array of VPN capabilities, with the performance to make full use of FTTP Fibre Broadband. Incorporating WiFi 5, the Vigor 2766ac provides a reliable and highly integrated network solution for SoHo environments.
The Vigor 2766ac is a G.Fast, VDSL or Ethernet WAN router with Gigabit performance, allowing you to make full use of DrayTek's advanced feature set with Quality of Service, VPN and Content Filtering. Connect the Vigor 2766ac to Superfast Fibre with its integrated G.Fast and VDSL modem, or connect to VirginMedia Cable and Ultrafast FTTP with Ethernet WAN.
Either connection (or a 4G USB modem, sold separately) can be used as the primary or Failover connections, so that if the main internet connection goes down the Vigor 2766ac can use its backup connections to guarantee reliable internet access and VPN connectivity.
The Vigor 2766ac provides full policy-based control of where and how outbound traffic is routed with Route Policy, to send traffic through VPN services and alternative LAN gateways:
The Vigor 2766ac features extensive VPN (Virtual Private Networking) capabilities. Its VPN capabilities are well suited to SoHo (small office, home office) environments. A VPN enables you to link remote offices and branch offices back to HQ, or home-based/mobile teleworkers back to your office.
The Vigor 2766ac allows you to make full use of Fibre broadband with VPN. Up to 200 Mbps of IPsec VPN throughput for fast and secure connections, to VPN services and other offices. Connect 2 VPN tunnels concurrently to access remote resources securely. Connect the Vigor 2766ac in a branch office or home office to a head office for seamless access to network resources.
It supports all common industry standard VPN protocols, for it to connect to VPN services, link remote offices and handle connections from all types of VPN clients. Supporting IPsec IKEv1 & IKEv2 protocols with EAP and XAuth authentication, DrayTek's SSL VPN and L2TP for both LAN to LAN and Dial-In teleworker VPNs. In addition, teleworkers can connect to the router with OpenVPN. User management for Dial-In Teleworkers is managed through the router's web interface, with mOTP 2-factor authentication available for IPsec, L2TP and SSL VPN Teleworker connections.
Supporting up to 2 concurrently active VPN tunnels and 200 Mbps of IPsec VPN throughput, the Vigor 2766ac is ideal as a branch-office or home-office router, to connect with a head office router such as the Vigor 3910.
Once connected, they have access to your office/remote resources through a secure encrypted tunnel allowing remote desktop, file sharing and seamless access to other resources and devices.
Connect up to 2 DrayTek SSL VPN tunnels. These encrypted tunnels securely link teleworkers or remote DrayTek Vigor routers back to your main office using SSL/TLS technology – similar to the HTTPS security that's used for most secure websites on the internet such as on-line banking and shopping services.
Teleworkers can connect with a secure SSL VPN tunnel to the DrayTek Vigor 2766, using the free DrayTek Smart VPN Client app. Available for Windows, macOS, Apple iOS (iPad, iPhone) and Android devices.
A typical requirement for connecting a VPN tunnel between two points is that the VPN server must be directly accessible on the public internet. Sometimes this can be achieved with NAT Port Forwarding if the router is located behind another router, but if the router is connected to 4G Mobile Broadband or is behind Carrier-Grade NAT (CG-NAT), connecting to that VPN server may be impossible.
DrayTek's VPN Matcher service helps DrayTek routers behind NAT to allow Dial-In Teleworkers to connect, or connect two DrayTek VPN routers that are behind NAT and could not normally establish a VPN tunnel.
The Vigor 2766ac provides 802.11ac (WiFi 5) simultaneous Dual-Band wireless for fast and efficient wireless connectivity. Multi-User MIMO allows the router to send to more than one device at a time, with each of its antennas streaming data to different devices at once, improving efficiency over standard 802.11ac (WiFi 5) wireless and allowing the router to effectively serve more wireless clients.
With firmware 4.3.0, the Vigor 2766ac wireless router can be used as part of DrayTek's Mesh wireless system, allowing the router to work as the Mesh Root, providing internet access and management of Mesh VigorAPs directly.
The Vigor 2766ac provides 4 Gigabit LAN ports for wired links to computers, servers and Network Attached Storage. The 4 LAN subnets and VLANs allow the Vigor 2766ac to provide a guest network fully separate from internal network data or any other configuration that can use 4 subnets, whether that's 4 wireless networks with different IP ranges, or a separate LAN subnet for printers and server. Each network can have its own Content Filtering, Firewall, Quality of Service and Route Policy configurations.
The router has full support for 802.1Q VLAN tagging, so that these subnets can be passed to other devices that support VLAN tags, such as the DrayTek VigorSwitch G1080 8-port switch (sold separately), for additional network ports. The Wireless LAN also links to these VLANs, making the same guest & private networks possible simply using different wireless SSIDs. Alternatively, connect up a DrayTek VigorAP wireless access point, such as the VigorAP 903 (sold separately), to do the same, spanning the router's own wireless and any connected wireless APs.
The Vigor 2766ac can be centrally managed along with VigorAPs and switches via the VigorACS central management platform. This scalable solution provides visibility, control and reporting of your entire DrayTek product estate, ideal for dealers/SIs managing customers' devices or any user who wants to know what's going on with their devices. VigorACS also provides features like automated/bulk firmware updates, VPN management and alarms for connectivity or other issues.
Security is always taken seriously with DrayTek routers. The firewall protects 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.
The DrayTek object-based firewall enables you to create combinations of Firewall rules and Content Filtering to suit a home or small office environment, applying Content Filtering to the whole network, only specified devices or just the network that guests can connect to.
The Vigor 2766ac supports both IPv4 and IPv6 with Dual-Stack IPv4/IPv6. Advanced networking features, such as the object-based Firewall, Quality of Service, Content Filtering and VLANs support both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
The content control features of the Vigor 2766ac allow you to set restrictions on web site access, blocking download of certain file or data types, blocking specific web sites with whitelists or blacklists, blocking IM/P2P applications or other potentially harmful or wasteful content. Restrictions can be per user, per PC or universal and according to time schedules.
Content filtering can also block sites using HTTPS/SSL where URLs are encrypted (and normal routers cannot block). Using the GlobalView service, you can block whole categories of web sites (e.g. gambling, adult sites etc.), subject to an annual subscription, which is continuously updated with new or changed site categorisations or sites which have become compromised (such as infected with Malware). A free 30-day trial is included with this router (see accessories tab for compatible GlobalView licences).
DrayTek provides a free Dynamic DNS address to each Vigor 2766ac router, allowing you to link the router's current IP address to a memorable “drayddns.com" hostname, such as “vigor2766.drayddns.com".
This address automatically updates whenever the internet connection's IP changes, so if one WAN’s IP address allocation is dynamic, or the IP changes when switching from the primary WAN connection to a backup, you can easily locate and access your Vigor 2766ac router. Just use the hostname to access the router's VPN services, management and any other services you have made accessible through the router.
The Vigor 2766ac can also authenticate your DrayDDNS hostname with free SSL/TLS certificates provided by LetsEncrypt. The router manages and automates the certificate process, keeping the certificate up to date and ready for use with SSL VPN and other services.
Prioritise latency-sensitive applications on your network with Quality of Service. App QoS simplifies setting up Quality of Service significantly – simply select which applications or services to prioritise, such as Zoom and Skype. Use 4 separate queues to give priority to servers & PCs (IP address), services such as VoIP or DNS, or packet tagging used by IP phones with 802.1p and DSCP support.
The Vigor 2766ac has two USB ports which can be used for 4G/LTE modem, USB temperature sensor, storage, or a printer for shared access (sold separately). Connect a USB 4G/LTE modem to the Vigor 2766ac and use mobile broadband as your internet connectivity. That can be your primary connection, or the router can switch over to 4G in the case of ADSL/VDSL/G.Fast outage, so that you're always connected.
Use your Vigor 2766ac as a network attached storage (NAS) by connecting a USB flash drive or hard drive (not included). With Windows networking (SMB) & FTP connectivity to allow Windows, Apple, Android and Linux devices to access the router's storage, locally and through VPN.
The Vigor 2766ac can manage and aid in setting up VigorAP access points, connected locally to the router. This enables you to centrally control, manage and administer multiple AP devices installed around your home or office, through the router's web interface for local or remote setup:
The DrayTek router operating as the wireless controller can provision both DrayTek VigorAP access points and its own Wireless LAN settings with Central AP Management profiles configured on the router, with an option to Auto Provision – auto configuring newly installed VigorAP access points with the Auto Provisioning profile, upon initial connection to the DrayTek Vigor router's network.
