It provides connectivity to your PCs or other Internet-connected devices (laptops, tablets, games consoles, smartphones) via its 4 built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports, or using Wireless LAN (on 'n' & 'ac' models).
The firewall helps protect your network from external threats, as well as the Vigor2762's built-in Content Filtering which gives you control over what and when your local users can access or download. The Vigor 2762 series can alternatively connect to an Ethernet Internet connection, such as a cable/fiber modem (e.g. Virgin Media) instead of connecting to a ADSL/VDSL line. Compatible 3G & 4G (LTE) modems can also optionally be added to the USB port to provide backup or main Internet connectivity without any fixed line.
The DrayTek Vigor 2762ac adds 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless to your network, with up to 866Mbps on the 5GHz 11ac band, and up to 300Mbps on the 2.4GHz band, allowing devices access to the Internet from around the property. The Vigor 2762ac operates simultaneiously in both the 2.4Ghz and less congested 5Ghz band so your devices can connect to either, with Band Steering to ensure that each wireless device connecting is guided to its most suitable wireless band.
An Ideal firewall router for Fibre Broadband
Many broadband connections offered by ISPs are referred to as Fibre Broadband, although technically in many cases they're actually VDSL based connections which run over your phone line. The phone line's twisted pair telephone cable runs from the premise to a street cabinet (these are typically 4ft green boxes with a Openreach logo on) which contain a VDSL MSAN (multi-service access node) that connects to fibre infrastructure which runs to the local exchange and then on to the ISPs core network. The Vigor 2762's built-in DSL interface (WAN1) is ideal for connecting this type of VDSL based connection.

Cable Modem and Ethernet WAN Compatible
As well as being able to connect to ADSL/VDSL lines directly through the Vigor 2762's RJ11 'DSL' socket, the Vigor 2762 series can instead connect to Ethernet-fed Internet connections, such as that provided by cable modems (e.g. VirginMedia). When Ethernet WAN is enabled, LAN Port 4 switches to become your WAN port into which you can connect to your cable modem or other Ethernet feed.
The other 3 Gigabit LAN ports (1-3) remain available for normal LAN connectivity. Note, you cannot have Ethernet WAN and ADSL/VDSL enabled at the same time; if Ethernet WAN is enabled, the ADSL/VDSL port is disabled (and vice versa). The photo on the right shows the Vigor 2762 connected to a fiber modem using the Ethernet WAN Port.
IPv6 - Next Generation Internet Routing
The Vigor 2762 supports IPv6 - the successor to the current IPv4 addressing system that has been used since the Internet was first created. IPv4 address space is full up and IPv6 allows for much more efficient routing and a larger address space. IPv6 is supported directly from your own ISP, but if your ISP does not (yet) support IPv6, the Vigor 2762 also supports IPv6 broker/tunnel services to provide IPv6 access using either TSPC or AICCU via 3rd party IPv6 providers. To learn all about IPv6, you can get our detailed guide to IPv6 here and you can view the IPv6 detailed support in the product specification tab.
The advanced networking features of the Vigor 2762, such as the object-based Firewall, Quality of Service, Content Filtering and VLANs support both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
Robust & Comprehensive Firewall
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 allows even more setup flexibility than ever, enabling 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 2762 also allows selective direction firewall rules of LAN to WAN, WAN to LAN or LAN to VPN.
Web Content Filtering
The content control features of the Vigor 2762 series 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 your new router.
4G Cellular Data & Network Attached Storage (NAS)
Network Attached Storage
The Vigor 2762 has two USB ports which can be used for 3G/4G modems, USB storage, or a printer for shared access.
You can connect a USB 3G/4G modem to the Vigor2762 and use the cellular networks (EE, O2, BT, Vodafone, Virgin, Three) as your Internet connectivity. That can be your primary (only) connection, or the router can switch over to 4G in the case of ADSL/VDSL outage so that you're always connected. Check here for the latest list of supported 3G & 4G modems as it is continuously updated as the telcos introduce new modem models..
You can use your Vigor 2762 as a network attached storage (NAS) with Windows networking (SMB) & FTP connectivity, to allow Windows, Apple, Android and Linux devices to easily access the router's storage.
You can also let users upload files - each storage user account can have their own login and read-only or read-write FTP access to a preset directory.
