Introduction
Vigor2830 series is an ADSL2+ router. It integrates IP layer QoS, NAT session/bandwidth
management to help users control works well with large bandwidth.
By adopting hardware-based VPN platform and hardware encryption of AES/DES/3DES, the
router increases the performance of VPN greatly, and offers several protocols (such as
IPSec/PPTP/L2TP) with up to 32 VPN tunnels.
The object-based design used in SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) firewall allows users to set
firewall policy with ease. CSM (Content Security Management) provides users control and
management in IM (Instant Messenger) and P2P (Peer to Peer) more efficiency than before.
By the way, DoS/DDoS prevention and URL/Web content filter strengthen the security
outside and control inside.
Object-based firewall is flexible and allows your network be safe. In addition, Vigor2830
series supports USB interface for connecting USB printer to share printer or USB storage
device for sharing files.
Vigor2830 series provides two-level management to simplify the configuration of network
connection. The user mode allows user accessing into WEB interface via simple configuration.
However, if users want to have advanced configurations, they can access into WEB interface
through admin mode.

3.1 WAN
Quick Start Wizard offers user an easy method to quick setup the connection mode for the
router. Moreover, if you want to adjust more settings for different WAN modes, please go to
WAN group.
3.1.1 Basics of Internet Protocol (IP) Network
IP means Internet Protocol. Every device in an IP-based Network including routers, print
server, and host PCs, needs an IP address to identify its location on the network. To avoid
address conflicts, IP addresses are publicly registered with the Network Information Centre
(NIC). Having a unique IP address is mandatory for those devices participated in the public
network but not in the private TCP/IP local area networks (LANs), such as host PCs under the
management of a router since they do not need to be accessed by the public. Hence, the NIC
has reserved certain addresses that will never be registered publicly. These are known as
private IP addresses, and are listed in the following ranges:
From 10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255
From 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255
From 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255
63
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
What are Public IP Address and Private IP Address
As the router plays a role to manage and further protect its LAN, it interconnects groups of
host PCs. Each of them has a private IP address assigned by the built-in DHCP server of the
Vigor router. The router itself will also use the default private IP address: 192.168.1.1 to
communicate with the local hosts. Meanwhile, Vigor router will communicate with other
network devices through a public IP address. When the data flow passing through, the
Network Address Translation (NAT) function of the router will dedicate to translate
public/private addresses, and the packets will be delivered to the correct host PC in the local
area network. Thus, all the host PCs can share a common Internet connection.
Get Your Public IP Address from ISP
In ADSL deployment, the PPP (Point to Point)-style authentication and authorization is
required for bridging customer premises equipment (CPE). Point to Point Protocol over
Ethernet (PPPoE) connects a network of hosts via an access device to a remote access
concentrator or aggregation concentrator. This implementation provides users with significant
ease of use. Meanwhile it provides access control, billing, and type of service according to
user requirement.
When a router begins to connect to your ISP, a serial of discovery process will occur to ask for
a connection. Then a session will be created. Your user ID and password is authenticated via
PAP or CHAP with RADIUS authentication system. And your IP address, DNS server, and
other related information will usually be assigned by your ISP.
Network Connection by 3G/4G USB Modem
For 3G/4G mobile communication through Access Point is popular more and more,
Vigor2830 adds the function of 3G/4G network connection for such purpose. By connecting
3G/4G USB Modem to the USB port of Vigor2830, it can support
HSDPA/UMTS/EDGE/GPRS/GSM and the future 3G standard (HSUPA, etc). Vigor2830n
with 3G/4G USB Modem allows you to receive 3G signals at any place such as your car or
certain location holding outdoor activity and share the bandwidth for using by more people.
Users can use four LAN ports on the router to access Internet. Also, they can access Internet
via 802.11n wireless function of Vigor2830n, and enjoy the powerful firewall, bandwidth
management, VPN features of Vigor2830n series.
After connecting into the router, 3G/4G USB Modem will be regarded as the third WAN port.
However, the original WAN1 and WAN2 still can be used and Load-Balance can be done in
the router. Besides, 3G/4G USB Modem in WAN3 also can be used as backup device.
Therefore, when WAN1 and WAN2 are not available, the router will use 3.5G for supporting
automatically. The supported 3G/4G USB Modem will be listed on DrayTek web site. Please
visit www.draytek.com for more detailed information.

3.2 LAN
Local Area Network (LAN) is a group of subnets regulated and ruled by router. The design of
network structure is related to what type of public IP addresses coming from your ISP.
3.2.1 Basics of LAN
The most generic function of Vigor router is NAT. It creates a private subnet of your own. As
mentioned previously, the router will talk to other public hosts on the Internet by using public
IP address and talking to local hosts by using its private IP address. What NAT does is to
translate the packets from public IP address to private IP address to forward the right packets
to the right host and vice versa. Besides, Vigor router has a built-in DHCP server that assigns
private IP address to each local host. See the following diagram for a briefly understanding.
In some special case, you may have a public IP subnet from your ISP such as
220.135.240.0/24. This means that you can set up a public subnet or call second subnet that
each host is equipped with a public IP address. As a part of the public subnet, the Vigor router
will serve for IP routing to help hosts in the public subnet to communicate with other public
hosts or servers outside. Therefore, the router should be set as the gateway for public hosts.
103
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
What is Routing Information Protocol (RIP)
Vigor router will exchange routing information with neighboring routers using the RIP to
accomplish IP routing. This allows users to change the information of the router such as IP
address and the routers will automatically inform for each other.
What is Static Route
When you have several subnets in your LAN, sometimes a more effective and quicker way for
connection is the Static routes function rather than other method. You may simply set rules to
forward data from one specified subnet to another specified subnet without the presence of
RIP.
What are Virtual LANs and Rate Control
You can group local hosts by physical ports and create up to 4 virtual LANs. To manage the
communication between different groups, please set up rules in Virtual LAN (VLAN) function
and the rate of each.
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide

3.2.2 General Setup
This page provides you the general settings for LAN. Click LAN to open the LAN settings

There are four subnets provided by the router which allow users to divide groups into different
subnets (LAN1 – LAN4). In addition, different subnets can link for each other by configuring
Inter-LAN Routing. At present, LAN1 setting is fixed with NAT mode only. LAN2 – LAN4
can be operated under NAT or Route mode. IP Routed Subnet can be operated under Route

Available settings are explained as follows:
Item
Description
IP Address
Type in private IP address for connecting to a local private
network (Default: 192.168.1.1).
Subnet Mask
Type in an address code that determines the size of the
network. (Default: 255.255.255.0/ 24)
RIP Protocol Control
Disable - deactivate the RIP protocol. It will lead to a
stoppage of the exchange of routing information between
routers. (Default)
Enable – activate the RIP protocol.
DHCP Server
Configuration
DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol.
The router by factory default acts a DHCP server for your
network so it automatically dispatch related IP settings to
any local user configured as a DHCP client. It is highly
recommended that you leave the router enabled as a DHCP
server if you do not have a DHCP server for your network.
If you want to use another DHCP server in the network
other than the Vigor Router’s, you can let Relay Agent help
you to redirect the DHCP request to the specified location.
Enable Server - Let the router assign IP address to every
host in the LAN.
Disable Server – Let you manually assign IP address to
every host in the LAN.
Enable Relay Agent –Specify which subnet that DHCP
server is located the relay agent should redirect the DHCP
request to.
Start IP Address - Enter a value of the IP address pool for
the DHCP server to start with when issuing IP addresses. If
the 1st IP address of your router is 192.168.1.1, the starting
IP address must be 192.168.1.2 or greater, but smaller than
192.168.1.254.
IP Pool Counts - Enter the maximum number of PCs that
107
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
you want the DHCP server to assign IP addresses to. The
default is 50 and the maximum is 253.
Gateway IP Address - Enter a value of the gateway IP
address for the DHCP server. The value is usually as same
as the 1st IP address of the router, which means the router is
the default gateway.
Lease Time – Enter the time to determine how long the IP
address assigned by DHCP server can be used.
Retrieve IPs from inactive clients periodically –
Whenever a DHCP client requests an IP address from the
LAN DHCP server, the server will give out an IP to this
client for a certain amount of time (e.g., 1 day). However,
even if this client only uses the IP for say 5 minutes, the
server still "reserves" 1 day for that client. Because a DHCP
server only has a limited number of IPs to lease to its
DHCP clients, soon enough all the IPs will be used out and
then no one will be able to get any IPs from this server
anymore. Therefore, this feature is used to get the IP back
from inactive clients (i.e. doesn't use the IP but the server
still reserves the IP for him).
DNS Server
Configuration
DNS stands for Domain Name System. Every Internet host
must have a unique IP address, also they may have a
human-friendly, easy to remember name such as
www.yahoo.com. The DNS server converts the
user-friendly name into its equivalent IP address.
Primary IP Address -You must specify a DNS server IP
address here because your ISP should provide you with
usually more than one DNS Server. If your ISP does not
provide it, the router will automatically apply default DNS
Server IP address: 194.109.6.66 to this field.
Secondary IP Address - You can specify secondary DNS
server IP address here because your ISP often provides you
more than one DNS Server. If your ISP does not provide it,
the router will automatically apply default secondary DNS
Server IP address: 194.98.0.1 to this field.
The default DNS Server IP address can be found via Online
Status:
If both the Primary IP and Secondary IP Address fields are
left empty, the router will use the DNS server assigned by
ISP. If not, the router will assign its own IP address to local
users as a DNS proxy server.

Go to LAN page and click General Setup, select 1st Subnet as the RIP Protocol
Control. Then click the OK button.
Note: There are two reasons that we have to apply RIP Protocol Control on 1st
Subnet. The first is that the LAN interface can exchange RIP packets with the
neighboring routers via the 1st subnet (192.168.1.0/24). The second is that those
hosts on the internal private subnets (ex. 192.168.10.0/24) can access the Internet via
the router, and continuously exchange of IP routing information with different
subnets.

3.2.4 VLAN (Multi-Subnet)
Virtual LAN function provides you a very convenient way to manage hosts by grouping them
based on the physical port. Go to LAN page and select VLAN. The following page will
appear. Click Enable to invoke VLAN function. The multi-subnet can let a small businesses
have much better isolation for multi-occupancy applications.
Tagged VLAN
The tagged VLANs (802.1q) can also mark data with a VLAN identifier. This identifier can be
carried through an onward Ethernet switch to specific ports. The specific VLAN clients can
also pick up this identifier as it passes to the LAN. Users can set the priorities for LAN-side
QoS and can assign each of the VLANs to each of the different IP subnets that the router may
also be operating in order to provide even more isolation. This functionality is tag-based
multi-subnet.
Port-Based VLAN
Relative to tag-based VLAN which groups clients with an identifier, port-based VLAN uses
physical ports to separate the clients into different VLAN group.
Note: Such page will be different slightly in accordance with the type of the router you
have and settings in this page only applied to LAN port but not WAN port.
Available settings are explained as follows:
Item
Description
Enable
Check this box to enable such function.
LAN
P1 – P4 – Check the LAN port(s) to be grouped under the
selected VLAN.
Wireless LAN
SSID1 – SSID4 – Check the SSID box(es) for the wireless
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide

clients to be grouped under the selected VLAN.
Subnet
Choose one of them to make the selected VLAN mapping
to the specified subnet only. For example, LAN1 is
specified for VLAN0. It means that PCs grouped under
VLAN0 can get the IP address(es) that specified by the
subnet.
VLAN Tag
Enable – Check it to enable the function of VLAN with
tag.
The router will add specific VLAN number to all packets
on the LAN while sending them out.
Please type the tag value and specify the priority for the
packets sending by LAN.
VID – Type the value as the VLAN ID number. The range
is form 0 to 4095.
Priority – Type the packet priority number for such VLAN.
The range is from 0 to 7.
Permit untagged device in
P1 to access router
It can help users to communicate with the router still even
though configuring wrong VLAN tag setting. For Vigor
router has one LAN physical port only, it is recommended
to enable the management port (LAN 1) to ensure the data
transmission is unimpeded.
Note: Leave one VLAN untagged at least to prevent from not connecting to Vigor router
due to unexpected error.
Vigor2830 series features a hugely flexible VLAN system. In its simplest form, each of the
Gigabit LAN ports can be isolated from each other, for example to feed different companies or
departments but keeping their local traffic completely separated.

router might not be accessed.
3.2.6 LAN Port Mirror
LAN port mirror can be applied for the users in LAN. Generally speaking, this function copies
traffic from one or more specific ports to a target port. This mechanism helps manager track
the network errors or abnormal packets transmission without interrupting the flow of data
access the network. By the way, user can apply this function to monitor all traffics which user
needs to check.
There are some advantages supported in this feature. First, it is more economical without other
detecting equipments to be set up. Second, it may be able to view traffic on one or more ports
within a VLAN at the same time. Third, it can transfer all data traffics to be mirrored to one
analyzer connect to the mirroring port. Next, it is more convenient and easy to configure in
user’s interface. Last, connect a PC with Smart Monitor installed to the mirror port of this
router to capture monitored information.

3.2.7 Wired 802.1x
IEEE 802.1x is an IEEE Standard for port-based Network Access Control (PNAC). It is part
of the IEEE 802.1 group of networking protocols. It provides an authentication mechanism for
the device that is attached to a LAN or WLAN.
Wired 802.1x provides authentication for one network device on each LAN port. The
RADIUS Server settings must be configured before enabling 802.1x because the EAP
(Extensible Authentication Protocol) Authenticator relies on the RADIUS Server in its
authentication process. Each LAN port with Wired 802.1x configured will only forward
802.1x packets and block all other packets until the authentication has successfully completed.

3.4 NAT
Usually, the router serves as an NAT (Network Address Translation) router. NAT is a
mechanism that one or more private IP addresses can be mapped into a single public one.
Public IP address is usually assigned by your ISP, for which you may get charged. Private IP
addresses are recognized only among internal hosts.
When the outgoing packets destined to some public server on the Internet reach the NAT
router, the router will change its source address into the public IP address of the router, select
the available public port, and then forward it. At the same time, the router shall list an entry in
a table to memorize this address/port-mapping relationship. When the public server response,
the incoming traffic, of course, is destined to the router’s public IP address and the router will
do the inversion based on its table. Therefore, the internal host can communicate with external
host smoothly.
The benefit of the NAT includes:

Save cost on applying public IP address and apply efficient usage of IP address.
NAT allows the internal IP addresses of local hosts to be translated into one public IP
address, thus you can have only one IP address on behalf of the entire internal hosts.

Enhance security of the internal network by obscuring the IP address. There are
many attacks aiming victims based on the IP address. Since the attacker cannot be aware
of any private IP addresses, the NAT function can protect the internal network.
On NAT page, you will see the private IP address defined in RFC-1918. Usually we use the
192.168.1.0/24 subnet for the router. As stated before, the NAT facility can map one or
more IP addresses and/or service ports into different specified services. In other words, the
NAT function can be achieved by using port mapping methods.
Below shows the menu items for NAT.
3.4.1 Port Redirection
Port Redirection is usually set up for server related service inside the local network (LAN),
such as web servers, FTP servers, E-mail servers etc. Most of the case, you need a public IP
address for each server and this public IP address/domain name are recognized by all users.
Since the server is actually located inside the LAN, the network well protected by NAT of the
router, and identified by its private IP address/port, the goal of Port Redirection function is to
131
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
forward all access request with public IP address from external users to the mapping private IP
address/port of the server.
The port redirection can only apply to incoming traffic.
To use this function, please go to NAT page and choose Port Redirection web page. The
Port Redirection Table provides 20 port-mapping entries for the internal hosts.
Each item is explained as follows:
Item

range of IP address and port.
Public Port
Specify which port can be redirected to the specified
Private IP and Port of the internal host. If you choose
Range as the port redirection mode, you will see two boxes
on this field. Simply type the required number on the first
box. The second one will be assigned automatically later.
133
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
Private IP
Specify the private IP address of the internal host providing
the service. If you choose Range as the port redirection
mode, you will see two boxes on this field. Type a complete
IP address in the first box (as the starting point) and the
fourth digits in the second box (as the end point).
Private Port
Specify the private port number of the service offered by
the internal host.
After finishing all the settings here, please click OK to save the configuration.
Note that the router has its own built-in services (servers) such as Telnet, HTTP and FTP etc.
Since the common port numbers of these services (servers) are all the same, you may need to
reset the router in order to avoid confliction.
For example, the built-in web user interface in the router is with default port 80, which may
conflict with the web server in the local network, http://192.168.1.13:80. Therefore, you need
to change the router’s http port to any one other than the default port 80 to avoid conflict,
such as 8080. This can be set in the System Maintenance >>Management Setup. You then
will access the admin screen of by suffixing the IP address with 8080, e.g.,
http://192.168.1.1:8080 instead of port 80.
3.4.2 DMZ Host
As mentioned above, Port Redirection can redirect incoming TCP/UDP or other traffic on
particular ports to the specific private IP address/port of host in the LAN. However, other IP
protocols, for example Protocols 50 (ESP) and 51 (AH), do not travel on a fixed port. Vigor
router provides a facility DMZ Host that maps ALL unsolicited data on any protocol to a
single host in the LAN. Regular web surfing and other such Internet activities from other
clients will continue to work without inappropriate interruption. DMZ Host allows a defined
internal user to be totally exposed to the Internet, which usually helps some special
applications such as Netmeeting or Internet Games etc.
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide

3.5 Firewall
3.5.1 Basics for Firewall
While the broadband users demand more bandwidth for multimedia, interactive applications,
or distance learning, security has been always the most concerned. The firewall of the Vigor
router helps to protect your local network against attack from unauthorized outsiders. It also
restricts users in the local network from accessing the Internet. Furthermore, it can filter out
specific packets that trigger the router to build an unwanted outgoing connection.
Firewall Facilities
The users on the LAN are provided with secured protection by the following firewall facilities:

User-configurable IP filter (Call Filter/ Data Filter).

Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI): tracks packets and denies unsolicited incoming data

Selectable Denial of Service (DoS) /Distributed DoS (DDoS) attacks protection
IP Filters
Depending on whether there is an existing Internet connection, or in other words “the WAN
link status is up or down”, the IP filter architecture categorizes traffic into two: Call Filter and
Data Filter.

Call Filter - When there is no existing Internet connection, Call Filter is applied to all
traffic, all of which should be outgoing. It will check packets according to the filter rules.
If legal, the packet will pass. Then the router shall “initiate a call” to build the Internet
connection and send the packet to Internet.

Data Filter - When there is an existing Internet connection, Data Filter is applied to
incoming and outgoing traffic. It will check packets according to the filter rules. If legal,
the packet will pass the router.
The following illustrations are flow charts explaining how router will treat incoming traffic
and outgoing traffic respectively.
143
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI)
Stateful inspection is a firewall architecture that works at the network layer. Unlike legacy
static packet filtering, which examines a packet based on the information in its header, stateful
inspection builds up a state machine to track each connection traversing all interfaces of the
firewall and makes sure they are valid. The stateful firewall of Vigor router not just examine
the header information also monitor the state of the connection.
Denial of Service (DoS) Defense
The DoS Defense functionality helps you to detect and mitigate the DoS attack. The attacks
are usually categorized into two types, the flooding-type attacks and the vulnerability attacks.
The flooding-type attacks will attempt to exhaust all your system's resource while the
vulnerability attacks will try to paralyze the system by offending the vulnerabilities of the
protocol or operation system.
The DoS Defense function enables the Vigor router to inspect every incoming packet based on
the attack signature database. Any malicious packet that might duplicate itself to paralyze the
host in the secure LAN will be strictly blocked and a Syslog message will be sent as warning, if
you set up Syslog server.
Also the Vigor router monitors the traffic. Any abnormal traffic flow violating the pre-defined
parameter, such as the number of thresholds, is identified as an attack and the Vigor router will
activate its defense mechanism to mitigate in a real-time manner.
The below shows the attack types that DoS/DDoS defense function can detect:
1. SYN flood attack
2. UDP flood attack
3. ICMP flood attack
4. Port Scan attack
5. IP options
6. Land attack
7. Smurf attack
8. Trace route
9. SYN fragment
10. Fraggle attack
11. TCP flag scan
12. Tear drop attack
13. Ping of Death attack
14. ICMP fragment
15. Unassigned Numbers

Accept large incoming…
Some on-line games (for example: Half Life) will use lots
of fragmented UDP packets to transfer game data.
Instinctively as a secure firewall, Vigor router will reject
these fragmented packets to prevent attack unless you
enable “Accept large incoming fragmented UDP or
ICMP Packets”. By checking this box, you can play these
kinds of on-line games. If security concern is in higher
priority, you cannot enable “Accept large incoming
145

Enable Strict Security
Firewall
Check the box to enable such function.
All the packets, while transmitting through Vigor router,
will be filtered by firewall settings configured by Vigor
router if such feature is enabled. If the firewall system does
not have any response (pass or block) for these packets,
such as no response coming from web content filter, then
the router’s firewall will block the packets directly.
Accept routing packet
from WAN
Usually, IPv6 network sessions/traffic from WAN to LAN
will be blocked by IPv6 firewall to prevent remote client
accessing into the PCs on LAN in default.
IPv6 - Check the box to make the packets (routed from
WAN to LAN) via IPv6 being accepted by such router. It is
effective only for the packets routed but not for packets
translated by NAT.

3.5.4 DoS Defense
As a sub-functionality of IP Filter/Firewall, there are 15 types of detect/ defense function in
the DoS Defense setup. The DoS Defense functionality is disabled for default.
Click Firewall and click DoS Defense to open the setup page.
Available settings are explained as follows:
Item
Description
Enable Dos Defense
Check the box to activate the DoS Defense Functionality.
Select All
Click this button to select all the items listed below.
Enable SYN flood defense
Check the box to activate the SYN flood defense function.
Once detecting the Threshold of the TCP SYN packets from
the Internet has exceeded the defined value, the Vigor
router will start to randomly discard the subsequent TCP
SYN packets for a period defined in Timeout. The goal for
this is prevent the TCP SYN packets’ attempt to exhaust the
limited-resource of Vigor router.
By default, the threshold and timeout values are set to 2000
packets per second and 10 seconds, respectively. That
means, when 2000 packets per second received, they will be
regarded as “attack event” and the session will be paused
for 10 seconds.
Enable UDP flood defense
Check the box to activate the UDP flood defense function.
Once detecting the Threshold of the UDP packets from the
Internet has exceeded the defined value, the Vigor router
will start to randomly discard the subsequent UDP packets
for a period defined in Timeout.
The default setting for threshold and timeout are 2000
packets per second and 10 seconds, respectively. That
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
158
means, when 2000 packets per second received, they will be
regarded as “attack event” and the session will be paused
for 10 seconds.
Enable ICMP flood
defense
Check the box to activate the ICMP flood defense function.
Similar to the UDP flood defense function, once if the
Threshold of ICMP packets from Internet has exceeded the
defined value, the router will discard the ICMP echo
requests coming from the Internet.
The default setting for threshold and timeout are 250 packets
per second and 10 seconds, respectively. That means, when
250 packets per second received, they will be regarded as
“attack event” and the session will be paused for 10
seconds.
Enable Port Scan
detection
Port Scan attacks the Vigor router by sending lots of packets
to many ports in an attempt to find ignorant services would
respond. Check the box to activate the Port Scan detection.
Whenever detecting this malicious exploration behavior by
monitoring the port-scanning Threshold rate, the Vigor
router will send out a warning.
By default, the Vigor router sets the threshold as 2000
packets per second. That means, when 2000 packets per
second received, they will be regarded as “attack event”.
Block IP options
Check the box to activate the Block IP options function.
The Vigor router will ignore any IP packets with IP option
field in the datagram header. The reason for limitation is IP
option appears to be a vulnerability of the security for the
LAN because it will carry significant information, such as
security, TCC (closed user group) parameters, a series of
Internet addresses, routing messages...etc. An eavesdropper
outside might learn the details of your private networks.
Block Land
Check the box to enforce the Vigor router to defense the
Land attacks. The Land attack combines the SYN attack
technology with IP spoofing. A Land attack occurs when an
attacker sends spoofed SYN packets with the identical
source and destination addresses, as well as the port number
to victims.
Block Smurf
Check the box to activate the Block Smurf function. The
Vigor router will ignore any broadcasting ICMP echo
request.
Block trace router
Check the box to enforce the Vigor router not to forward any
trace route packets.
Block SYN fragment
Check the box to activate the Block SYN fragment function.
The Vigor router will drop any packets having SYN flag and
more fragment bit set.
Block Fraggle Attack
Check the box to activate the Block fraggle Attack function.
Any broadcast UDP packets received from the Internet is
blocked.
Activating the DoS/DDoS defense functionality might
block some legal packets. For example, when you activate
the fraggle attack defense, all broadcast UDP packets
159
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
coming from the Internet are blocked. Therefore, the RIP
packets from the Internet might be dropped.
Block TCP flag scan
Check the box to activate the Block TCP flag scan function.
Any TCP packet with anomaly flag setting is dropped. Those
scanning activities include no flag scan, FIN without ACK
scan, SYN FINscan, Xmas scan and full Xmas scan.
Block Tear Drop
Check the box to activate the Block Tear Drop function.
Many machines may crash when receiving ICMP datagrams
(packets) that exceed the maximum length. To avoid this
type of attack, the Vigor router is designed to be capable of
discarding any fragmented ICMP packets with a length
greater than 1024 octets.
Block Ping of Death
Check the box to activate the Block Ping of Death function.
This attack involves the perpetrator sending overlapping
packets to the target hosts so that those target hosts will
hang once they re-construct the packets. The Vigor routers
will block any packets realizing this attacking activity.
Block ICMP Fragment
Check the box to activate the Block ICMP fragment
function. Any ICMP packets with more fragment bit set are
dropped.
Block Unassigned
Numbers
Check the box to activate the Block Unknown Protocol
function. Individual IP packet has a protocol field in the
datagram header to indicate the protocol type running over
the upper layer. However, the protocol types greater than 100
are reserved and undefined at this time. Therefore, the router
should have ability to detect and reject this kind of packets.
Warning Messages
We provide Syslog function for user to retrieve message
from Vigor router. The user, as a Syslog Server, shall receive
the report sending from Vigor router which is a Syslog
Client.
All the warning messages related to DoS Defense will be
sent to user and user can review it through Syslog daemon.
Look for the keyword DoS in the message, followed by a
name to indicate what kind of attacks is detected.

3.6 User Management
User Management is a security feature which disallows any IP traffic (except DHCP-related
packets) from a particular host until that host has correctly supplied a valid username and
password. Instead of managing with IP address/MAC address, User Management function
manages hosts with user account. Network administrator can give different firewall policies or
rules for different hosts with different User Management accounts. This is more flexible and
convenient for network management. Not only offering the basic checking for Internet access,
User Management also provides additional firewall rules, e.g. CSM checking for protecting
hosts.
Note: Filter rules configured under Firewall usually are applied to the host (the one that
the router installed) only. With user management, the rules can be applied to every user
connected to the router with customized profiles.
Note: If Transparency Mode is selected in Firewall>>General Setup, User
Management cannot be used any more. Please uncheck Transparency Mode first if you
want to utilize user management to handle users in LAN, WAN or WLAN.

3.8 CSM Profile
Content Security Management (CSM)
CSM is an abbreviation of Content Security Management which is used to control IM/P2P
usage, filter the web content and URL content to reach a goal of security management.
APP Enforcement Filter
As the popularity of all kinds of instant messenger application arises, communication cannot
become much easier. Nevertheless, while some industry may leverage this as a great tool to
connect with their customers, some industry may take reserve attitude in order to reduce
employee misusage during office hour or prevent unknown security leak. It is similar situation
for corporation towards peer-to-peer applications since file-sharing can be convenient but
insecure at the same time. To address these needs, we provide CSM functionality.
URL Content Filter
To provide an appropriate cyberspace to users, Vigor router equips with URL Content Filter
not only to limit illegal traffic from/to the inappropriate web sites but also prohibit other web
feature where malicious code may conceal.
Once a user type in or click on an URL with objectionable keywords, URL keyword blocking
facility will decline the HTTP request to that web page thus can limit user’s access to the
website. You may imagine URL Content Filter as a well-trained convenience-store clerk who
won’t sell adult magazines to teenagers. At office, URL Content Filter can also provide a
job-related only environment hence to increase the employee work efficiency. How can URL
Content Filter work better than traditional firewall in the field of filtering? Because it checks
the URL strings or some of HTTP data hiding in the payload of TCP packets while legacy
firewall inspects packets based on the fields of TCP/IP headers only.
On the other hand, Vigor router can prevent user from accidentally downloading malicious
codes from web pages. It’s very common that malicious codes conceal in the executable objects,
such as ActiveX, Java Applet, compressed files, and other executable files. Once downloading
these types of files from websites, you may risk bringing threat to your system. For example, an
ActiveX control object is usually used for providing interactive web feature. If malicious code
hides inside, it may occupy user’s system.
Web Content Filter
We all know that the content on the Internet just like other types of media may be
inappropriate sometimes. As a responsible parent or employer, you should protect those in your
trust against the hazards. With Web filtering service of the Vigor router, you can protect your
business from common primary threats, such as productivity, legal liability, network and
security threats. For parents, you can protect your children from viewing adult websites or chat
rooms.
Once you have activated your Web Filtering service in Vigor router and chosen the categories of
website you wish to restrict, each URL address requested (e.g.www.bbc.co.uk) will be checked
against our server database. This database is updated as frequent as daily by a global team of
Internet researchers. The server will look up the URL and return a category to your router. Your
Vigor router will then decide whether to allow access to this site according to the categories you
have selected. Please note that this action will not introduce any delay in your Web surfing
because each of multiple load balanced database servers can handle millions of requests for
categorization.
Note: The priority of URL Content Filter is higher than Web Content Filter.

you may simply specify the full or partial URL such as “www.sex.com” or “sex.com”.
Also the Vigor router will discard any request that tries to retrieve the malicious code.

3.9.3 Quality of Service
Deploying QoS (Quality of Service) management to guarantee that all applications receive the
service levels required and sufficient bandwidth to meet performance expectations is indeed
one important aspect of modern enterprise network.
One reason for QoS is that numerous TCP-based applications tend to continually increase their
transmission rate and consume all available bandwidth, which is called TCP slow start. If
other applications are not protected by QoS, it will detract much from their performance in the
overcrowded network. This is especially essential to those are low tolerant of loss, delay or
jitter (delay variation).
Another reason is due to congestions at network intersections where speeds of interconnected
circuits mismatch or traffic aggregates, packets will queue up and traffic can be throttled back
to a lower speed. If there’s no defined priority to specify which packets should be discarded
(or in another term “dropped”) from an overflowing queue, packets of sensitive applications
mentioned above might be the ones to drop off. How this will affect application performance?
There are two components within Primary configuration of QoS deployment:

Classification: Identifying low-latency or crucial applications and marking them for
high-priority service level enforcement throughout the network.

Scheduling: Based on classification of service level to assign packets to queues and
associated service types
The basic QoS implementation in Vigor routers is to classify and schedule packets based on
the service type information in the IP header. For instance, to ensure the connection with the
headquarter, a teleworker may enforce an index of QoS Control to reserve bandwidth for
HTTPS connection while using lots of application at the same time.
One more larger-scale implementation of QoS network is to apply DSCP (Differentiated
Service Code Point) and IP Precedence disciplines at Layer 3. Compared with legacy IP
Precedence that uses Type of Service (ToS) field in the IP header to define 8 service classes,
DSCP is a successor creating 64 classes possible with backward IP Precedence compatibility.
In a QoS-enabled network, or Differentiated Service (DiffServ or DS) framework, a DS
domain owner should sign a Service License Agreement (SLA) with other DS domain owners
to define the service level provided toward traffic from different domains. Then each DS node
in these domains will perform the priority treatment. This is called per-hop-behavior (PHB).
The definition of PHB includes Expedited Forwarding (EF), Assured Forwarding (AF), and
Best Effort (BE). AF defines the four classes of delivery (or forwarding) classes and three
levels of drop precedence in each class.
Vigor routers as edge routers of DS domain shall check the marked DSCP value in the IP
header of bypassing traffic, thus to allocate certain amount of resource execute appropriate
policing, classification or scheduling. The core routers in the backbone will do the same
checking before executing treatments in order to ensure service-level consistency throughout
the whole QoS-enabled network.
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
214
However, each node may take different attitude toward packets with high priority marking
since it may bind with the business deal of SLA among different DS domain owners. It’s not
easy to achieve deterministic and consistent high-priority QoS traffic throughout the whole
network with merely Vigor router’s effort.

to be identified by server on ISP.
For example, in the following illustration, the VoIP packets in LAN go into Vigor router
without any header. However, when they go forward to the Server on ISP through Vigor
router, all of the packets are tagged with AF (configured in Bandwidth >>QoS>>Class)
automatically.

3.10 Applications
Below shows the menu items for Applications.
3.10.1 Dynamic DNS
The ISP often provides you with a dynamic IP address when you connect to the Internet via
your ISP. It means that the public IP address assigned to your router changes each time you
access the Internet. The Dynamic DNS feature lets you assign a domain name to a dynamic
WAN IP address. It allows the router to update its online WAN IP address mappings on the
specified Dynamic DNS server. Once the router is online, you will be able to use the
registered domain name to access the router or internal virtual servers from the Internet. It is
particularly helpful if you host a web server, FTP server, or other server behind the router.
Before you use the Dynamic DNS feature, you have to apply for free DDNS service to the
DDNS service providers. The router provides up to three accounts from three different DDNS
service providers. Basically, Vigor routers are compatible with the DDNS services supplied by
most popular DDNS service providers such as www.dyndns.org, www.no-ip.com,
www.dtdns.com, www.changeip.com, www.dynamic- nameserver.com. You should visit
their websites to register your own domain name for the router.

3.10.3 Schedule
The Vigor router has a built-in real time clock which can update itself manually or
automatically by means of Network Time Protocols (NTP). As a result, you can not only
schedule the router to dialup to the Internet at a specified time, but also restrict Internet access
to certain hours so that users can connect to the Internet only during certain hours, say,
business hours. The schedule is also applicable to other functions.
You have to set your time before set schedule. In System Maintenance>> Time and Date
menu, press Inquire Time button to set the Vigor router’s clock to current time of your PC.
The clock will reset once if you power down or reset the router. There is another way to set up
time. You can inquiry an NTP server (a time server) on the Internet to synchronize the router’s
clock. This method can only be applied when the WAN connection has been built up.

3.10.6 UPnP
The UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) protocol is supported to bring to network connected
devices the ease of installation and configuration which is already available for directly
connected PC peripherals with the existing Windows 'Plug and Play' system. For NAT routers,
the major feature of UPnP on the router is “NAT Traversal”. This enables applications inside
the firewall to automatically open the ports that they need to pass through a router. It is more
reliable than requiring a router to work out by itself which ports need to be opened. Further,
the user does not have to manually set up port mappings or a DMZ. UPnP is available on
Windows XP and the router provide the associated support for MSN Messenger to allow full
use of the voice, video and messaging features.
Available settings are explained as follows:
Item
Description
Enable UPNP Service
Accordingly, you can enable either the Connection Control
Service or Connection Status Service.
Default WAN
It is used to specify the WAN interface for applying such
function.
The default setting is WAN1.
After setting Enable UPNP Service setting, an icon of IP Broadband Connection on Router
on Windows XP/Network Connections will appear. The connection status and control status
will be able to be activated. The NAT Traversal of UPnP enables the multimedia features of
your applications to operate. This has to manually set up port mappings or use other similar
methods. The screenshots below show examples of this facility.
235
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
The UPnP facility on the router enables UPnP aware applications such as MSN Messenger to
discover what are behind a NAT router. The application will also learn the external IP address
and configure port mappings on the router. Subsequently, such a facility forwards packets from
the external ports of the router to the internal ports used by the application.
The reminder as regards concern about Firewall and UPnP
Can't work with Firewall Software
Enabling firewall applications on your PC may cause the UPnP function not working
properly. This is because these applications will block the accessing ability of some network
ports.
Security Considerations
Activating the UPnP function on your network may incur some security threats. You should
consider carefully these risks before activating the UPnP function.
 Some Microsoft operating systems have found out the UPnP weaknesses and hence
you need to ensure that you have applied the latest service packs and patches.
 Non-privileged users can control some router functions, including removing and
adding port mappings.
The UPnP function dynamically adds port mappings on behalf of some UPnP-aware
applications. When the applications terminate abnormally, these mappings may not be
removed.

3.11 VPN and Remote Access
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is the extension of a private network that encompasses links
across shared or public networks like the Internet. In short, by VPN technology, you can send
data between two computers across a shared or public network in a manner that emulates the
properties of a point-to-point private link.
Below shows the menu items for VPN and Remote Access.
241
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
3.11.1 Remote Access Control
Enable the necessary VPN service as you need. If you intend to run a VPN server inside your
LAN, you should disable the VPN service of Vigor Router to allow VPN tunnel pass through,
as well as the appropriate NAT settings, such as DMZ or open port.
3.11.2 PPP General Setup
This submenu only applies to PPP-related VPN connections, such as PPTP, L2TP, L2TP over
IPSec.
Available settings are explained as follows:
Item
Description
Dial-In PPP
Authentication
PAP Only - elect this option to force the router to
authenticate dial-in users with the PAP protocol.
PAP or CHAP - Selecting this option means the router will
attempt to authenticate dial-in users with the CHAP
protocol first. If the dial-in user does not support this
protocol, it will fall back to use the PAP protocol for
authentication.
Dial-In PPP Encryption
(MPPE)
Optional MPPE - This option represents that the MPPE
encryption method will be optionally employed in the
router for the remote dial-in user. If the remote dial-in user
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
242
does not support the MPPE encryption algorithm, the router
will transmit “no MPPE encrypted packets”. Otherwise, the
MPPE encryption scheme will be used to encrypt the data.
Require MPPE (40/128bits) - Selecting this option will
force the router to encrypt packets by using the MPPE
encryption algorithm. In addition, the remote dial-in user
will use 40-bit to perform encryption prior to using 128-bit
for encryption. In other words, if 128-bit MPPE encryption
method is not available, then 40-bit encryption scheme will
be applied to encrypt the data.
Maximum MPPE - This option indicates that the router
will use the MPPE encryption scheme with maximum bits
(128-bit) to encrypt the data.
Mutual Authentication
(PAP)
The Mutual Authentication function is mainly used to
communicate with other routers or clients who need
bi-directional authentication in order to provide stronger
security, for example, Cisco routers. So you should enable
this function when your peer router requires mutual
authentication. You should further specify the User Name
and Password of the mutual authentication peer.
Assigned IP Start
Enter a start IP address for the dial-in PPP connection. You
should choose an IP address from the local private network.
For example, if the local private network is
192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0, you could choose
192.168.1.200 as the Start IP Address.
You can configure up to four start IP addresses for LAN.
LDAP Server Profiles for
PPP Authentication
Configured LDAP profiles will be listed under such item.
Simply check the one you want to enable the PPP
authentication by LDAP server profiles.
However, if there is no profile listed, simply click the link
of PPTP LDAP Profile to create/add some new LDAP
profiles you want.

3.11.3 IPSec General Setup
In IPSec General Setup, there are two major parts of configuration.
There are two phases of IPSec.

Phase 1: negotiation of IKE parameters including encryption, hash, Diffie-Hellman
parameter values, and lifetime to protect the following IKE exchange, authentication of
both peers using either a Pre-Shared Key or Digital Signature (x.509). The peer that
starts the negotiation proposes all its policies to the remote peer and then remote peer
tries to find a highest-priority match with its policies. Eventually to set up a secure tunnel
for IKE Phase 2.

Phase 2: negotiation IPSec security methods including Authentication Header (AH) or
Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) for the following IKE exchange and mutual
examination of the secure tunnel establishment.
There are two encapsulation methods used in IPSec, Transport and Tunnel. The Transport
mode will add the AH/ESP payload and use original IP header to encapsulate the data payload
only. It can just apply to local packet, e.g., L2TP over IPSec. The Tunnel mode will not only
add the AH/ESP payload but also use a new IP header (Tunneled IP header) to encapsulate the
whole original IP packet.
Authentication Header (AH) provides data authentication and integrity for IP packets passed
between VPN peers. This is achieved by a keyed one-way hash function to the packet to create
a message digest. This digest will be put in the AH and transmitted along with packets. On the
receiving side, the peer will perform the same one-way hash on the packet and compare the
value with the one in the AH it receives.
Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) is a security protocol that provides data confidentiality
and protection with optional authentication and replay detection service.
Available settings are explained as follows:

Enable PING to keep alive is used to handle abnormal
IPSec VPN connection disruption. It will help to provide
the state of a VPN connection for router’s judgment of
redial. Normally, if any one of VPN peers wants to
disconnect the connection, it should follow a serial of
packet exchange procedure to inform each other. However,
if the remote peer disconnect without notice, Vigor router
will by no where to know this situation. To resolve this
dilemma, by continuously sending PING packets to the
remote host, the Vigor router can know the true existence of
this VPN connection and react accordingly. This is
independent of DPD (dead peer detection).

3.12 Certificate Management
A digital certificate works as an electronic ID, which is issued by a certification authority
(CA). It contains information such as your name, a serial number, expiration dates etc., and the
digital signature of the certificate-issuing authority so that a recipient can verify that the
certificate is real. Here Vigor router support digital certificates conforming to standard X.509.
Any entity wants to utilize digital certificates should first request a certificate issued by a CA
server. It should also retrieve certificates of other trusted CA servers so it can authenticate the
peer with certificates issued by those trusted CA servers.
Here you can manage generate and manage the local digital certificates, and set trusted CA
certificates. Remember to adjust the time of Vigor router before using the certificate so that
you can get the correct valid period of certificate.

3.13 VoIP
Note: This function is used for “V” models.
Voice over IP network (VoIP) enables you to use your broadband Internet connection to make
toll quality voice calls over the Internet.
There are many different call signaling protocols, methods by which VoIP devices can talk to
each other. The most popular protocols are SIP, MGCP, Megaco and H.323. These protocols
are not all compatible with each other (except via a soft-switch server).
The Vigor V models support the SIP protocol as this is an ideal and convenient deployment
for the ITSP (Internet Telephony Service Provider) and softphone and is widely supported.
SIP is an end-to-end, signaling protocol that establishes user presence and mobility in VoIP
structure. Every one who wants to talk using his/her SIP Uniform Resource Identifier, “SIP
Address”. The standard format of SIP URI is
sip: user:password @ host: port
Some fields may be optional in different use. In general, "host” refers to a domain. The
“userinfo” includes the user field, the password field and the @ sign following them. This is
very similar to a URL so some may call it “SIP URL”. SIP supports peer-to-peer direct calling
and also calling via a SIP proxy server (a role similar to the gatekeeper in H.323 networks),
while the MGCP protocol uses client-server architecture, the calling scenario being very
similar to the current PSTN network.
After a call is setup, the voice streams transmit via RTP (Real-Time Transport Protocol).
Different codecs (methods to compress and encode the voice) can be embedded into RTP
packets. Vigor V models provide various codecs, including G.711 A/μ-law, G.723, G.726 and
G.729 A & B. Each codec uses a different bandwidth and hence provides different levels of
voice quality. The more bandwidth a codec uses the better the voice quality, however the
codec used must be appropriate for your Internet bandwidth.
Usually there will be two types of calling scenario, as illustrated below:
273
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide

Calling via SIP Servers
First, the Vigor V models of yours will have to register to a SIP Registrar by sending
registration messages to validate. Then, both parties’ SIP proxies will forward the
sequence of messages to caller to establish the session.
If you both register to the same SIP Registrar, then it will be illustrated as below:
The major benefit of this mode is that you don’t have to memorize your friend’s IP
address, which might change very frequently if it’s dynamic. Instead of that, you will
only have to using dial plan or directly dial your friend’s account name if you are with
the same SIP Registrar.

Peer-to-Peer
Before calling, you have to know your friend’s IP Address. The Vigor VoIP Routers will
build connection between each other.

Our Vigor V models firstly apply efficient codecs designed to make the best use of
available bandwidth, but Vigor V models also equip with automatic QoS assurance.
QoS Assurance assists to assign high priority to voice traffic via Internet. You will
always have the required inbound and outbound bandwidth that is prioritized exclusively
for Voice traffic over Internet but you just get your data a little slower and it is tolerable
for data traffic.

3.13.1 DialPlan
This page allows you to set phone book and digit map for the VoIP function. Click the Phone
Book and Digit Map links on the page to access into next pages for dialplan settings.
Available settings are explained as follows:
Item
Description
Enable Secure Phone
It allows users to have encrypted RTP stream with the peer
side using the same protocol (ZRTP+SRTP). Check this
box to have secure call.
Enable SAS Voice Prompt If it is enabled, SAS prompt will be heard for both ends
every time. If it is disabled, no SAS prompt will be heard
any more.
Application for Secure Phone
Enable SAS Voice Prompt, for ex: if vigor router A calls vigor router B with checking Enable
Secure Phone and Enable SAS Voice Prompt, then:
1. After the connection established, vigor router A will send SAS voice prompt to A and
vigor router B will send the SAS voice prompt to B.
2. Then the RTP traffic is secured until the call ends.
3. If vigor router A wants to call vigor router B again next time, both A and B will not hear
any voice prompt again even checking Enable SAS Voice Prompt on web UI. It means
only the first call between them will have voice prompt.
Enable SAS Voice Prompt, for ex: if vigor router A calls vigor router B with checking Enable
Secure Phone but not Enable SAS Voice Prompt, then:
1. After the connection established, vigor router A will NOT send SAS voice prompt to
vigor router A and vigor router B will NOT send the SAS voice prompt to vigor router B.
2. Even no voice prompt, but the RTP traffic is still secured until the call ends.
Note: If the incoming or outgoing calls do not match any entry on the phonebook, the
router will try to make the call "being protected". But, if the call ends up "unprotected"(e.g.
peer side does not support ZRTP+SRTP), the router will not play out a warning message.

3.14 Wireless LAN
This function is used for “n” models only.
3.14.1 Basic Concepts
Over recent years, the market for wireless communications has enjoyed tremendous growth.
Wireless technology now reaches or is capable of reaching virtually every location on the
surface of the earth. Hundreds of millions of people exchange information every day via
wireless communication products. The Vigor “n” model, a.k.a. Vigor wireless router, is
designed for maximum flexibility and efficiency of a small office/home. Any authorized staff
can bring a built-in WLAN client PDA or notebook into a meeting room for conference
without laying a clot of LAN cable or drilling holes everywhere. Wireless LAN enables high
mobility so WLAN users can simultaneously access all LAN facilities just like on a wired
LAN as well as Internet access.
The Vigor wireless routers are equipped with a wireless LAN interface compliant with the
standard IEEE 802.11n draft 2 protocol. To boost its performance further, the Vigor Router is
also loaded with advanced wireless technology to lift up data rate up to 300 Mbps*. Hence,
you can finally smoothly enjoy stream music and video.
Note: * The actual data throughput will vary according to the network conditions and
environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, network overhead and
building materials.
In an Infrastructure Mode of wireless network, Vigor wireless router plays a role as an Access
Point (AP) connecting to lots of wireless clients or Stations (STA). All the STAs will share the
same Internet connection via Vigor wireless router. The General Settings will set up the
information of this wireless network, including its SSID as identification, located channel etc.
Multiple SSIDs
Vigor router supports four SSID settings for wireless connections. Each SSID can be defined
with different name and download/upload rate for selecting by stations connected to the router
wirelessly.
295
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
Security Overview
Real-time Hardware Encryption: Vigor Router is equipped with a hardware AES encryption
engine so it can apply the highest protection to your data without influencing user experience.
Complete Security Standard Selection: To ensure the security and privacy of your wireless
communication, we provide several prevailing standards on market.
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is a legacy method to encrypt each frame transmitted via
radio using either a 64-bit or 128-bit key. Usually access point will preset a set of four keys
and it will communicate with each station using only one out of the four keys.
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access), the most dominating security mechanism in industry, is
separated into two categories: WPA-personal or called WPA Pre-Share Key (WPA/PSK), and
WPA-Enterprise or called WPA/802.1x.
In WPA-Personal, a pre-defined key is used for encryption during data transmission. WPA
applies Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) for data encryption while WPA2 applies AES.
The WPA-Enterprise combines not only encryption but also authentication.
Since WEP has been proved vulnerable, you may consider using WPA for the most secure
connection. You should select the appropriate security mechanism according to your needs.
No matter which security suite you select, they all will enhance the over-the-air data
protection and /or privacy on your wireless network. The Vigor wireless router is very flexible
and can support multiple secure connections with both WEP and WPA at the same time.
Separate the Wireless and the Wired LAN- WLAN Isolation enables you to isolate your
wireless LAN from wired LAN for either quarantine or limit access reasons. To isolate means
neither of the parties can access each other. To elaborate an example for business use, you
may set up a wireless LAN for visitors only so they can connect to Internet without hassle of
the confidential information leakage. For a more flexible deployment, you may add filters of
MAC addresses to isolate users’ access from wired LAN.
Manage Wireless Stations - Station List will display all the station in your wireless network
and the status of their connection.
Below shows the menu items for Wireless LAN.

3.14.6 WDS
WDS means Wireless Distribution System. It is a protocol for connecting two access points
(AP) wirelessly. Usually, it can be used for the following application:


Provide bridge traffic between two LANs through the air.
Extend the coverage range of a WLAN.
To meet the above requirement, two WDS modes are implemented in Vigor router. One is
Bridge, the other is Repeater. Below shows the function of WDS-bridge interface:
The application for the WDS-Repeater mode is depicted as below:
The major difference between these two modes is that: while in Repeater mode, the packets
received from one peer AP can be repeated to another peer AP through WDS links. Yet in
Bridge mode, packets received from a WDS link will only be forwarded to local wired or
wireless hosts. In other words, only Repeater mode can do WDS-to-WDS packet forwarding.
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide

3.14.7 Advanced Setting
This page allows users to set advanced settings such as operation mode, channel bandwidth,
guard interval, and aggregation MSDU for wireless data transmission.
Available settings are explained as follows:
Item
Description
Operation Mode
Mixed Mode – the router can transmit data with the ways
supported in both 802.11a/b/g and 802.11n standards.
However, the entire wireless transmission will be slowed
down if 802.11g or 802.11b wireless client is connected.
Green Field – to get the highest throughput, please choose
such mode. Such mode can make the data transmission
happening between 11n systems only. In addition, it does
not have protection mechanism to avoid the conflict with
neighboring devices of 802.11a/b/g.
Channel Bandwidth
20- the router will use 20Mhz for data transmission and
receiving between the AP and the stations.
20/40 – the router will use 20Mhz or 40Mhz for data
transmission and receiving according to the station
capability. Such channel can increase the performance for
data transit.
Guard Interval
It is to assure the safety of propagation delays and
reflections for the sensitive digital data. If you choose auto
as guard interval, the AP router will choose short guard
interval (increasing the wireless performance) or long guard
interval for data transmit based on the station capability.
Aggregation MSDU
Aggregation MSDU can combine frames with different
sizes. It is used for improving MAC layer’s performance
for some brand’s clients. The default setting is Enable.
Long Preamble
This option is to define the length of the sync field in an
802.11 packet. Most modern wireless network uses short
preamble with 56 bit sync field instead of long preamble
with 128 bit sync field. However, some original 11b
wireless network devices only support long preamble. Click
Enable to use Long Preamble if needed to communicate
with this kind of devices.
Packet-OVERDRIVE
This feature can enhance the performance in data
transmission about 40%* more (by checking Tx Burst). It
309
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
is active only when both sides of Access Point and Station
(in wireless client) invoke this function at the same time.
That is, the wireless client must support this feature and
invoke the function, too.
Note: Vigor N61 wireless adapter supports this function.
Therefore, you can use and install it into your PC for
matching with Packet-OVERDRIVE (refer to the following
picture of Vigor N61 wireless utility window, choose
Enable for TxBURST on the tab of Option).
Note: * means the real transmission rate depends on the
environment of the network.

Application and Examples
4.1 How to Configure Multiple Services with PVC to PVC Binding
The router supports a new feature that single PVC can offer more than one service. The
following illustration shows how to bind the functions of NAT and Bridge processed with one
PVC.
From the above figure, Setop Box and DHCP server can reach for each other through
WAN5 with Bridge mode; LAN PC in P1 beneath Vigor router can reach to PPPoE
Server through WAN1 with NAT. Both NAT and Bridge are built through the same
Channel 1.
Follow the steps listed below to configure the settings:
1. Log into the web user interface of Vigor router.
2. Open WAN>>Internet Access. Only PPPoE and MPoA 1483 Bridge can support PVC to
PVC Binding feature, you have to choose PPPoE/PPoA as the Access Mode for WAN1.
371
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
3. Click the Details Page of WAN1 to display the following page. Check Enable and set
Channel 1 as Multi-PVC channel; set 0 and 88 for VPI and VCI; type the username (e.g.,

4.2 How to Configure Multi-Subnet in Vigor2830
There are two types of VLAN. One is Port Based VLAN; the other is Tag Based VLAN. Refer
to the following sections for learning the usage of VLAN.
I. Port Based VLAN
Vigor2830 can divide the physical LAN ports into several groups. For example, it can divide
the internal departments of a company into three different groups. Each group uses different
network segment. See the following graphic for an example.
Group 0 (VLAN0)(Human Resource): LAN Port 1 IP: 192.168.1.0/24
Group 1 (VLAN1)(Finance Dept): LAN Port 2 IP: 192.168.3.0/24
Group 2 (VLAN2)(Sales Dept.): LAN Port 3、Port 4 IP: 192.168.5.0/24
Configuration:
1.
In the page of LAN >> VLAN Configuration, check the box of Enable to enable the
function of VLAN Configuration.
2.
For VLAN0 setting, check P1 and set LAN1 as the Subnet.
3.
For VLAN1 setting, check P2 and set LAN2 as the Subnet.
4.
For VLAN2 setting, check P3 and P4, and set LAN3 as the Subnet.
375
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
5.
In the page of LAN >> General Setup, check the Status box of LAN2 and LAN3 and
enable the function of DHCP.
After finishing the above configuration, the equipment connecting to Vigor2830 LAN
Port can get the corresponding IP address of the network segment.
The equipment connecting to Vigor2830 LAN Port 1 (LAN1) can get the IP address of
192.168.1.0/24
The equipment connecting to Vigor2830 LAN Port 2 (LAN2) can get the IP address of
192.168.3.0/24
The equipment connecting to Vigor2830 LAN Port 3 and Port 4 (LAN3) can get the IP
address of 192.168.5.0/24
For the detailed settings of the network segment, open LAN>>General Setup and click
Details Page. Adjust the settings for your request. Refer to the following figure.
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
376
6.
To make any two of VLAN groups linked with each other, just check the boxes of the
ones in the field of Inter-LAN Routing in the page of LAN >> General Setup. Refer to
the following figure. LAN2 and LAN3 are linked.
377
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
II. Tag Based VLAN
By identifying the tagged message, Vigor2830 can divide the LAN Port into several VLAN
groups. Such LAN port with tagged information will accept the packets only with VLAN ID
number.
For example, Vigor2830 can divide the internal departments of a company into four different
groups by using VigorSwitch 2240. Each group uses different network segment and does not
link for each other. VigorSwitch 2240 Trunk Port 23 and Vigor2830 LAN Port 4 are
connected with network cable. See the following graphic for an example.
Group 0 (VLAN0)( Human Resource): LAN Port 4 IP: 192.168.1.0/24
Group 1 (VLAN1)( Finance Dept): LAN Port 4 IP: 192.168.3.0/24
Group 2 (VLAN2)( Sales Dept.): LAN Port 4 IP: 192.168.5.0/24
Group 3 (VLAN3)(R&D): LAN Port 4 IP: 192.168.7.0/24

4.14 How to Implement the LDAP/AD Authentication for User
Management?
For simplifying the configuration of LDAP authentication for User Access Management, we
implement “Group” feature.
There is no need to pre-configure user profile for each user on Vigor router anymore. We only
need to configure the Groups DN, then the Vigor router (e.g., Vigor 3200 series) can pass the
authentication to LDAP server with the pre-defined Group path.
Below shows the configuration steps:
1.
Access into the web user interface of the Vigor router.
2.
Open Applications>>Active Directory /LDAP to get the following page for
configuring LDAP related settings.
There are three types of bind type supported:
3.

Simple Mode – Just simply do the bind authentication without any search action.

Anonymous – Perform a search action first with Anonymous account then do the
bind authentication.

Regular Mode– Mostly it is the same with anonymous mode. The different is that,
the server will firstly check if you have the search authority.
For the regular mode, you’ll need to type in the Regular DN and Regular
Password.
Create LDAP server profiles. Click the Active Directory /LDAP tab to open the profile

4.15 How to Implement the LDAP/AD Authentication for VPN?
For simplifying the configuration of LDAP authentication for User Access Management, we
implement “Group” feature.
There is no need to pre-configure user profile for each user on Vigor router anymore. We only
need to configure the Groups DN, then the Vigor router (e.g., Vigor 3200 series) can pass the
authentication to LDAP server with the pre-defined Group path.
Below shows the configuration steps:
1.
Access into the web user interface of the Vigor router.
2.
Open Applications>>Active Directory /LDAP to get the following page for
configuring LDAP related settings.
There are three types of bind type supported:
3.

Simple Mode – Just simply do the bind authentication without any search action.

Anonymous – Perform a search action first with Anonymous account then do the
bind authentication.

Regular Mode– Mostly it is the same with anonymous mode. The different is that,
the server will firstly check if you have the search authority.
For the regular mode, you’ll need to type in the Regular DN and Regular
Password.
Create LDAP server profiles. Click the Active Directory /LDAP tab to open the profile
web page and click any one of the index number link.
If we have two groups “RD1” and “SHRD” on LDAP server, we can configure two
LDAP server profiles with different Group Distinguished Name.

4.16 How to Setup Address Mapping
Address Mapping is used to map a specified private IP or a range of private IPs of NAT subnet
into a specified WAN IP (or WAN IP alias IP). Refer to the following figure.
Suppose the WAN settings for a router are configured as follows:
WAN1: 202.211.100.10, WAN1 alias: 202.211.100.11
WAN2: 203.98.200.10
Without address mapping feature, when a NAT host with an IP say "192.168.1.10" sends a
packet to the WAN side (or the Internet), the source address of the NAT host will be mapped
into either 202.211.100.10 or 203.98.200.10 (which IP or mapping is decided by the internal
load balancing algorithm).
With address mapping feature, you can manually configure any host mapping to any WAN
interface to fit the request. In the above example, you can configure NAT Host 1 to always
map to 202.211.100.10 (WAN1); Host 2 to always map to 202.211.100.11 (WAN1 alias);
Host 3 always map to 203.98.200.10 (WAN2) and Group 1 to always map to 202.211.100.10
(WAN1).
NAT Address Mapping function lets you specify the outgoing IP address(es) for one internal
IP address or a block of internal IP addresses.
We will take an example to introduce how to make use of this feature.
1.
Log into the web user interface of Vigor2830.
2.
Open WAN>>Internet Access. For WAN1, choose MPoA/Static or Dynamic IP as the
Access Mode.
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
436
3.
Click the Details Page of WAN 1 to open the following page. From the above figure, set
main WAN IP address as 202.211.100.10.
Click the WAN IP Alias button to configure the other P address which is 202.211.100.11.
Make sure Join IP NAT Pool is not checked. Click OK to save the settings.
437
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
4.
After finished configuration for WAN1, open Load-Balance/Route Policy.
5.
Click Index number 1 and 2 to configure the details. After finished the settings, click OK
to save the settings respectively.
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
438
And
6.
Upon completing the above configuration, you have specified the outgoing IP address(es)
for some specific computers.
7.
Now, you bind some specific computers to some WAN IP alias for outgoing traffic.

and 203.65.1.35; choose WAN1 as the Interface; click default gateway; do not check
Auto Failover To The Other WAN.
4.
After finished the above settings, click OK to save the configuration.
441
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide

Appendix I: VLAN Applications
on Vigor Router
Virtual Local Area Network is so-called VLAN. It offers the logical grouping technique to
separate the physical ports of Ethernet switches, thus we can management our local network
easier, more flexible and secure. For instance, you’re a networking administrator in your
company and you’re planning to isolate the visitors’ traffics from your private network for
security considerations because you cannot ensure that visitors’ computer is clean. Or you
want to separate your private network into several parts by divisions because there are too
many computers in the same network segment and it results in the local traffics heavily.
VLAN helps you to solve these situations, and DrayTek’s products support bellow two
popular types:
Port-based
It uses a matrix table of the physical ports to define the traffics how to exchange between each
port, and the traffics will be isolated from the ports are not being ticked in the same line. It is
the easiest way to setup an isolate network, but not a flexible way to maintain a growing
network. Because the idea of port-based VLAN is grouping by physical ports, but the
difficulty is how to handle the traffics between two or more Ethernet switches. Thus, VLAN is
suitable for some circumstances, for example, the rental apartment, SOHO office…and so on.
These clients may need two or three isolated networks only and setup a network in a simple
way.
Tag-based
The idea of tag-based VLAN is to identify a virtual LAN with a specific ID, therefore, VLAN
ID introduced by tag-based VLAN. Through VLAN ID, ports with different VID (VLAN ID)
will be identified as in different LANs, so the traffics also will be isolated from each of
VLANs. Many administrators who manage an enterprise network or even the internet service
providers (ISP) adopt Tag-based VLAN popularly because it is convenient to maintenance and
management a distributed network. Setting a large-scale network is easy by giving each of
them with different VID and isolating the traffics at the same time. Besides the VLAN ID,
there is another feature, Trunk, introduced. While the role of a port on an Ethernet switch is
setup as a Trunk port, it means the VLAN ID will be kept while forwarding the packets
between switches. By this feature, VLANs are able to distribute over two or more Ethernet
451
Vigor2830 Series User’s Guide
switches easily, moreover design a large and secured network is possible through Trunk port.
When VLAN is being enabled on Vigor routers, the LAN ports are being turned into Trunk
mode automatically. Therefore, a VLAN supported switch, like VigorSwitch G2260/P2261, or
VigorSwitch G1240, is needed.
Vigor routers [Note] support Tag-based feature both on LAN and WAN interfaces. The next
we’ll demonstrate our web design and how to configure the settings by introducing the
functionalities of Vigor router.

Modem router: Vigor2850/Vigor2860
VLAN Packets on Vigor routers
Trunk mode of LAN
Trunk Port can carry the packets with VID but replace the Non-VID packet as the VID of
Trunk port while forwarding the packets to another switch.
Bridge mode of WAN
P1 and P2 are doing NAT flow to access to the internet, but P3 and P4 will forward the
packets between WAN and LAN ports directly.
Web User Interface
So far, there are two kinds of open system on Vigor router. One is DrayOS, which is DrayTek
owned, and another is Linux-like which customized by DrayTek from OpenWRT. Here

Port-based mode
Tag-based mode
By above settings, there are four private networks will be created and computers attached
with each of LAN ports or SSIDs which are able to obtain a private IP address from each
DHCP servers (LAN1/LAN2/LAN3/LAN4). However, the traffics of the LAN port or
SSID that are NOT being grouped in the same VLAN are unable to forward to each other.
The benefit of Port-based is able to extend the wired ports by installing a cheaper dumb
switch as many as you need, but Tag-based offers you a flexible and well-managed
network. The networks are isolated, secured and reduce the broadcasting storm
effectively in each of networks with VLAN.
