How to Migrate your 2925 to 2926

The newest DrayTek family member is here, the Vigor 2926. You can find out more details on some of the benefits and improvements over the 2925 in this blog post but I can advance that there is major enhancements with WiFi, VPN and throughput.

We'll focus on the migration in this article.

If it is time to replace your older 2925 but you worry about having to recreate all the configuration in the new 2926 you need to read further down.

You can migrate an existing configuration from a 2925 to the new 2926. Fortunately DrayTek made this task as easy as taking a backup from 2925 and restoring to 2926. 

You can do this in the router GUI under System Maintenance >> Configuration Backup Menu

There is few things we need to watch when doing this:

1. Your 2925 needs to be running firmware version or later. If yours is older then the first step is updating your 2925 firmware.

2. Bind IP to MAC tables do not move automatically to the 2926. If have this table configured, you need to get a backup of the Bind IP to MAC table on the 2925 and restore to 2926.

3. Any setting you had that refers to LAN port 5 on the 2925 won't translate to the 2926. The new 2926 have 4 physical LAN ports. 

Other than that, you should be fine performing this migration. I our test User profiles, VPN profiles, Policy routes and many other setting translated just fine to new 2926.

Please open a case here is you encounter any issue that went unoticed to us.
