Vigor 2926 Series Ethernet Router Firewall & Load-Balancer

The Vigor 2926 series is our dual-Ethernet WAN firewall for load-balancing or failover. It's also a fully featured firewall, VPN concentrator and content filtering device.

This latest router series includes support for professional features such as VLAN tagging, Gigabit Ethernet, built-in wireless LAN (Vigor 2926n or Vigor 2926ac). An alternative WAN connectivity is by a USB 3G/4G/LTE cellular modem which can be your primary WAN feed, backup or load-balanced with your fixed line.

Vigor 2926 front panel sockets

The Vigor 2926 series supports many professional features such as VLAN tagging, QoS (Quality of Service Assurance), High Availability, DNS Filter, Policy Based Routing, and User Access Control. Wired and Wireless models also include our new Hotspot features. If you deploy DrayTek Wireless Access Points, the Vigor 2926 can act as the Central Management Controller (click on any of those links for an explanation of each feature). 

A 5-port Gigabit Ethernet switch on the LAN side provides high speed connectivity for your server, other local PCs or for uplink to a larger Ethernet switch.

Comprehensive security features include content filtering, web application controls and an object based firewall management system. Port 5 is switchable with 'WAN2' to use it as an Ethernet WAN port instead of a LAN port*.

*requires f/w 3.8.8 or later, otherwise 5th Ethernet port is for WAN2 only.

If you need more ports, we have a complete range of gigabit Ethernet switches, or add a Vigor G1080 and USB cable for a self-powered combination (see right).


Need more ports? Add a G1080 switch.

 

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 users, rules and restrictions to suit multi-departmental organisations. The Vigor 2926 also allows selective direction firewall rules of LAN to WAN, WAN to LAN or LAN to LAN/VPN.

Central Management with VigorACS

The Vigor 2926 series (along with most other DrayTek routers, Access points and switches) can be centrally managed by our VigorACS central management platform.

This scalable solution provides visibility, control and reporting of your entire DrayTek product estate, ideal for dealers/SIs manageing 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.

WAN Load Balancing & Backup

The Vigor 2926 features WAN connectivity via its two WAN Ethernet ports, two USB ports for connection of a compatible 3G/4G modem and Wireless WAN.

The ethernet ports can connect to DSL modems (e.g. Vigor 130), a cable modem or any other Ethernet-based Internet feed.

The multiple WAN interfaces can be used either for WAN-Backup or Load Balancing. Load-balancing or failover supports IPv4 only currently (not IPv6).

Vigor 2925 Load Balancing with two Internet connections
The Vigor 2926 makes use of two simultaneous WAN connections

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

The USB port provides Internet connectivity (main, backup or load balanced) by connecting to a compatible USB modem (or cellphone) for access to the high speed 3G/4G/LTE cellular networks from UK providers such as Vodafone, O2, 3 and EE. If you don't have a wired Internet connection at all, the USB/3G/4G access method can be used as your primary/only Internet connection, ideal for temporary locations, mobile applications or where broadband access is not available.


Alternatively, if you will be making more regular use of 3G/4G/LTE, consider the Vigor 2862Ln model with its built-in cellular modem & SIM slot.

Web Content Filtering

The content control features of the Vigor 2926 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.

Internet Connection via Wireless

Most commonly, your router will connect to the Internet via fixed line or cellular (3G/4G/LTE) but the wireless models of the Vigor 2926 series, such as the Vigor 2926ac can use a Wireless connection as its WAN (Internet) feed, using it either as a primary or backup Internet connection.

For instance, the Vigor 2926ac can connect to your mobile phones wireless hotspot facility and use that as an Internet connection, or load balancing it with wired connections.

Importantly, when using this feature, your own Wireless LAN still works - i.e. the wireless base facility provided to your laptops/phones/tablets by the Vigor router still works.

Rack Mounting Kit

Vigor 2820 in RM1 Rack mounting bracket

The RM1 Rackmount Bracket enables you to fit any Vigor 2926 series router into a standard 19" rack or cabinet.

The bracket takes up one rack slot (1U) and includes a cable retainer at the back to keep the power cord captive.

The front mounted sockets of the router remain fully accessible. For wireless models, we then recommend extension aerials (or aerial extensions).

User Management/Authentication

The Vigor 2926 has built-in user management which allows you to provide conditional internet access to individual users.

Apply Time and Data usage quotas to different users, based on their own unique login, which is stored in the router, or on an external Radius server.

USB Port for Ad-Hoc Storage / Logging

USB Memory

The Vigor 2926's USB port can also be used to add storage memory to the unit in the form of a USB memory key (as shown right).

The Vigor 2926 then provides FTP access file uploading/downloading which can be from the local LAN or from anywhere on the Internet - ideal for a simple to deploy file depository.

If you do have a USB memory key connected, you can also have the router save it's system logs (syslog) to that memory instead of to a connecting computer; useful for technical personnel (SysAdmins).

IPv6 - Next Generation Internet Routing

The Vigor 2926 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 both from your own ISP, but if your ISP does not (yet) support IPv6, the Vigor 2926 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.
