6 Hidden Features in the DrayTek Vigor Router Dashboard
Posted by Roy Panetta on 24 May 2017 11:52 AM
DrayTek has designed a Dashboard page for Vigor routers providing information on the router status as well as shortcuts to configuration menus. This article will describe each of these features.
1. DrayTek Home Icon
2. GUI Map Icon
Clicking on the GUI Map icon will display a complete list of configuration menu pages. You can click on any of the links on this page to go directly to the required configuration menu. This will save time navigating the menus.
3. Web Console Icon
Click on the Web Console Icon to establish a telnet session with the router to bring up the Command Line Interface (CLI). This eliminates the need to have telnet software installed on your PC.
The CLI is often used for diagnostics or to configure parameters that are not available in the GUI in the router.
4. Configuration Backup Icon
5. Logout Icon
6. Topology Icon
The Topology icon on the Dashboard will display the connection status of the WAN and LAN ports as well as Virtual WANS and Wi-Fi SSIDs
