Decent Router for VM Business

Joining in

Hi all,

I've got VM 600/60 with a static IP and currently have a Draytek Vigor 2925 router.

The problem I have is that the download speed seems capped at 250Mb rather than extending to the 600Mb I pay for. I need a decent router for the VPN and firewall capabilities among other things.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I've used Asus ones in the past and they always seemed pretty good.

Draytek Vigor 2927. 950Mb throughput per WAN interface.  I use this without any issues.

In the Hitron's status data it should be possible to find the download speed profile ( aka Max Traffic Rate etc ) we would expect to see a figure of over 600Mb/s E.g 660Mb/s   i.e. not one in the 250 to 275 Mb/s range., 

Try a speed test with your computer booted into Safe Mode + Networking. Often the download speed jumps up indicating the computer is bogged down with software applications or anti virus suites & the like.
