The Vigor 130 is a pre-configured VDSL2 / ADSL2+ modem that takes a VDSL2 or ADSL2+ connection and performs full pass-through / bridge to Ethernet presentation, which can then be used by a device such as a router to connect directly to the internet. The Vigor 130 does not store any Internet usernames or passwords itself - those go into your router's configuration instead.

The settings on the Vigor 130 are correct for most UK lines out of the box, so in most cases it should only be necessary to configure the router that it is connected to.

The DrayTek Vigor 130 modem has a web interface available on (username of "admin" and password of "admin" by default). This can be used to check ADSL / VDSL diagnostic information or re-configure the modem to bridge a DHCP / Static IP connection if required. The computer will need to be plugged into the modem's Ethernet port to access this interface.

Default Vigor 130 settings:

  • Configured to pass through a PPPoE connection
  • VDSL2 VLAN Tag is set to 101
  • ADSL VPI/VCI is set to 0/38 for PPPoA connections, 0/101 for MPoA connections

Setup Procedure:

  1. Connect the RJ-11 port (marked 'DSL') on the Vigor 130 to the VDSL or ADSL line.
  2. Configure the WAN interface on your router to use PPPoE and enter the username and password details for the internet connection.
  3. Connect the RJ-45 Ethernet port on the Vigor 130 to the WAN ethernet port of your Apple AirPort router.
