Accessing Web-Based Monitoring and Control System

I just pulled up the Data Sheet for the office's 3COM 3300 Switch.  The Data Sheet states that the switch has "Web-based monitoring and control system, embedded Remote Monitoring (RMON), and 3Com Network Supervisor (trial copy included on CD)."  Two questions:
1) If I can monitor the unit with an web browser, how do I access it?  There's no IP address.  It's a layer 2 object, after all.
2) Can I monitor bandwidth usage on each port using the "Web-based monitoring"?  Ideally, I'd like the monitor packets headed for the default gateway.  (Our DSL is overloaded.)

1. The 3Ccom 3300 series come with a default IP (I believe 192.168.1.x). You can change it to whatever you like. It is only used for management purposes.

2. I wouldn't say you could monitor, more like view statistics on port usage, etc.

Will the default IP be different if the switch resides in a 10.20.2.0/24 subnet?

You have to change it to what you want.
