For the past few years, DrayTek has performed well in our Best Tech Awards, and in 2009 readers gave the firm six out of six for reliability, speed and range.

We've no way of testing for long-term reliability in the Labs, but our speed and range tests confirmed the opinion of our readers.

At close range, we recorded an average speed from router to laptop of 86Mbits/sec, and 57Mbits/sec from laptop to router. That's about as fast as we'd expect a single-band router with only a 10/100 Ethernet connection to go.

At long range, the Vigor performs solidly too, achieving a router to laptop rate of 48Mbits/sec and 56Mbits/sec in reverse. The speeds in both locations were solid enough to maintain dropout-free Full HD video, and the Vigor sailed through our soak test.

It maintained a glitch-free VoIP call, smooth iPlayer playback and internet radio playback, while we carried out simultaneous file transfers over SSL VPN, FTP and SMB.

The feature set is unimpeachable. There's built-in support for VPN dial-out, and a subscription-based website-blocking feature to bar websites of a particular category.

A USB port on the rear supports storage devices, printers and mobile broadband dongles, and the admin pages allow in-depth control. Even ADSL users are catered for - just buy the identical 2710n instead.

It's a very good product and one that, based on the experiences of thousands of PC Authority readers, should be reliable too.

It may not be dual band, but otherwise it's hard to fault.
