Draytek Vidor120 Latest Model etc



  • Hi all,

    New to the forums. Seems that this is one of those forums that the mods lock down threads all the time… So frustrating!

    Just been reading this topic: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,58882.0.html

    Does anyone know the latest model of the Vigor120?

    Also has anyone else had any issues with them? About to buy one.

    Thanks!



  • There are only two versions of the Draytek Vigor 120 modem, a v1 and a v2.

    Don't get the UK and the US mixed up, the firmware may look similar, but there are subtle differences!

    The latest firmwware can be found here:

    UK Link
    v1 - F/W 3.2.4.4
    v2 - F/W 3.2.6

    US Link
    Vigor120 series - 3.2.4.4 - 2010/09/13
    Vigor120 V2 series - 3.2.6 - 2011/05/24

    NOTE: to download from the US Link, you first need to register.



  • I have the uk v2, I stopped using it as it just seemed intermittently sluggish and now use an old speedtouch in pptp pass through mode which I find is better on my noisy line.

    ADSL 2+ up to 16Mbps vigor syncs between 12 - 13 , but as I said internet seems sluggish and hangs on occasion , I have not tried it on pfsense, The speedtouch syncs marginally higher and things just seem smoother - I get more consistent speedtest results. Speedtest on the vigor is all over the place.

    Threads are autolocked after enough time has passed without anyone posting to it.



  • Thanks Exolon!!!

    Eeek! First negative that I've heard about these. Do you have the 500mA power supply or the 1A? Thanks!



  • Its 500ma. Draytek said the uk v2 does not have the psu issue when I asked. Maybs ill try a 1amp.



  • A customer have a 120 plugged into bigger draytek router which auto load balanced two adsl lines but found it sluggish as well.

    I suspect one of the reasons why the 120 is sluggish is the MTU is not 1500 but just under I think 1496 from memory (its back in Jan I last worked on that system) and the UK (BT) adsl uses the full MTU of 1500 unlike elsewhere like the US which uses just under.

    FWIW.
