DanieBlog - Set up WAN for Draytek 2960. After you have successfully logged into the Draytek device, we will start the first task that is to set the WAN for the device.

Draytek 2960 has 2 default WANs

You know, depending on the product version. For me, Draytek 2960 has 2 default WAN ports and it is named wan1 and wan2.

Now, go to menu WAN -> General Setup, you’ll see there are 2 default profiles, wan1 and wan2. And if you see, there will be no profile Add button here but only the Edit button.

Declare wan1 account information from ISP provider.

In it, there are 3 information that you will have to ask the service provider.

  • Username
  • Password
  • MTU/MRU

After completing all the information, click Apply to save the configuration.

Usually this information will be included in the contract that the provider sends you. You need to save this information for use in case of device configuration.

Or you can call the provider and ask them for information support.
