DrayTek Vigor130 Modem Router

This video provides an overview of the Vigor130 router which has become one of the more popular as well as one of the cheaper routers DrayTek has on offer. The reason for its popularity is not hard to understand. There are two groups of people the Vigor130 is ideally suited to. The first is someone with no need of a network who just needs a basic ADSL or VDSL modem to plug their PC into, with some bonus security features to get them online quickly and safely. The second group needs a basic modem with no security features to plug into a more advanced router or hardware firewall. The Vigor130 can be configured to work either way.
