DrayTek gained some notice as the first (and only) company to produce a broadband router that connects to DSL modems with USB outputs. I've been in search for a consumer-priced router with bandwidth management capabilities for some time now and it appears that Draytek has produced another first.

The Vigor 2900G Broadband Security Router combines a four port VPN-endpoint router, 802.11g wireless access point and LPR-based USB print server. That in itself is a first, but there are more surprises in store once you start digging into the 2900G's wide array of features.

NOTE!There are actually four products in the 2900 series. The 2900 drops the 2900G's wireless capabilities, while the 2900i and 2900Gi add integrated ISDN terminal adapters to their non-"i" siblings' capabilities. Note the ISDN versions are not available in North America.
