Draytek Vigor2860n config

Last Modified: 2015-06-30
Hi Experts,

I am configuring up my first router. it is a draytek Vigor2860n it is going to be a replacement for a modem + older router we have.

the idea is the router is going to have a BT infinity line go straight into it.

I should be okay with all the config because its identical to the other one plus BT talked me through it before.

my question is how do I initially connect to it? I know this might sound like a dumb question but with regards to the other one, I put a local IP address in which is on a range. how do I connect to start the config?

I have plugged it into my switch and done a netscan but cant see an IP at all.

All help welcome
