As good as the Draytek routers are for business use, the Wi-Fi spec on them isnít great, eg they donít support beam forming nor do they go beyond 2x2 or 3x3 streams (canít remember which). Before you say he should use an additional access point for wifi, the OP has made it very clear he requires an all-in-one router.
However it is apparently a small flat with just himself and he does not care much about WiFi performance. As such the Draytek will provide that and long term give you security updates which Netgear et al. won't. No brainer IMHO.
For home use, there's nothing wrong with using a consumer router equipped with the latest firmware and WPA2 encryption enabled. Yes I'm fully aware that consumer routers do (and will) get hacked but if this was happening too frequently then the likes of Tim Higgins on SNBForums
would be making a huge issue of it and telling people NOT to buy consumer routers. However this clearly isn't the case and suggesting people shouldn't be using consumer routers is akin to telling people not to cross the road, just in case they get run over. Of course businesses may think differently, however this thread is not about routers in a business/commercial environment.
