Draytek Vigor2860n config

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

Here;s some instructions for configuring the router with BT infinity - you'll need to create a free account with Draytek to open it if you already do not have one.


States 2850 but same for 2860 as well.

For initial setup you need to connect your computer to the LAN port (1) on the router. It should then be accessible on IP (I believe). Default username and password is admin / admin I think.
