Re: Draytek Vigor 166 G.fast Modem / Router Review
« Reply #300 on: April 10, 2021, 11:24:51 AM »

I finally got my g.fast service yesterday.
I upgraded the Vigor 166 to the latest UK firmware prior to using it on the line. Otherwise, it is left with all the default settings at the moment. This includes its IP which is 192.168.2.1. All good.
My question is though, previously I had a Vigor 130 in my setup and could connect to the modem directly from my browser (my main network is on different subnet 192.168.178.1/24) by using its IP address, which is the same as the Vigor 166. However I can no longer connect to the modem this way, although I can plug my laptop into the other LAN port on the modem and connect to it that way. Not as convenient. My entire network, router setup has not changed so am a little puzzled.

So - does anyone know what I should change in the modem config to allow a connection via my browser on my main network?

I don't have the Vigor 160 connected at the moment, but you should be able to connect the 2nd LAN port to your router on the internal network and configure it with an IP address in the same network as your PC, the 192.168.178.0/24 network.

I can confirm that this works when running the V166-K in Bridge mode:
- On the V166, I set an IP (e.g. 192.168.178.X) in LAN > General Setup
- On my router (also Vigor), I used the LAN > Bind IP to Mac to do just that - set 192.168.178.X to always be assigned to the V166's MAC address

I'm upgrading from VDSL2 to G.fast soon, so I got the V166 in anticipation (due to helpful advice on this forum!). Have got it all working with my existing VDSL2 connection, so hopefully the transition over to G.fast will be smooth.

For anyone with an EU GEN1 or GEN2 model, DrayTek in Germany now has a dedicated BETA firmware page here:

I see someone in the UK is auctioning off the latest GEN2 Version of the EU variant on eBay at the moment, a German import apparently.
