well i pretty much got that answer from draytek support, but then i thought well whats the point in putting it there if its not to be used.
Presumably to cater for other ISPs (in perhaps other countires) which do support the feature.
Also its a draytek vigor 2800, there are about 15 tick boxes in DoS , i like the sound of block ping of death
I presume enabling ping of death defense will cause the router to drop any ping packets greater than 65565 bytes (if memory serves me right), no modern OS should be affected by that any way so again, unlikely to be of benefit
fwiw I don't have any of the DoS features enabled on my Draytek... simply not needed for my home use and if it's not enabled then it can't be responsible for causing problems.
