Try a factory reset of the Draytek

Which suggests that the Draytek is not serving out an IP address via DHCP.

The 169.254 is a failed to get address address.

Check that the Draytek default to 192.168.1.1 IP address and try setting the following manual on the Ethernet interface of the PC

IP 192.168.1.21
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Gateway 192.168.1.1
DNS 192.168.1.1

Re: Cant access Draytek 2850n


[re: MrSaffron] [link to this post]
 
First step is actually to determine how the OP has physically connected the hardware. My reading of all this is that he has FTTC so would have an FTTC modem. The output side is an ethernet cable, so where is that actually conhnected to? I could assime from what the OP says that he has perhaps daisy changed from modem to HH to Draytek but surely not! Has both the FTTC modem and HH been binned leaving just the 2850 in place? Even that is not clear from the information given.

Perhaps the FTTC modem is there and the ethernet cable from it connects to the 2850? Who knows? But if that is the case, you connect to the DrayTek's WAN port not to a LAN port. Of course some confoguration is needed in the Draytek to use the WAN port. Some might find this difficult to do.

What is painfully obvious is that an IP address starting 169 is internally generated by the PC which is evident from no gateway address beinhg shown in ipconfig. So where do we start with answering the OPs question? First let us get an idea of what pieces of equipment he is going to use and how he intendsw to connect it all together.. Then we can all start to advise him what to do.

However if a 2850 has been purchased why is it that it is not the only piece of hardware being used?

Some earlier responses were of no help at all.

Yes, and to disable any firewall on the PC that might be blocking DHCP.

Many Thanks for taking the time to Help

The Issue with connecting to the Draytek is resolved
after a couple of factory resets i now get an IP 192.168.1.1
I can connect to the 2850
The setup is
BT White Modem to HH3 ( Works as expected )
2850 directly connected to BT with no White Modem works when used as wired
but not on Wireless ( Yet )
What i would like is to use the White Modem and Take Ethernet direct to 2850 WAN Port
Cant seem to get that going yet
I know it works without the BT Modem but would like to use it

Since you have a built-in modem you may need to disable WAN 1 in the 2850 and then connect an ethernet patch cable between the ECI and the 2850's WAN 2 port.

Then, if it's similar to my 2830, go into the 'WAN' menu, select 'Internet Access' then in the 'Access Mode' dropdown for WAN2 select 'PPPoE'

Then click on the 'Details page' button to open the PPPoE tab. On there you just need to select 'Enable', put in your ISP username/password and click 'OK' Your router should then reboot and connect.
