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.

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


So I showed you the steps to configure the WAN for the Draytek 2960 device. If you configured it correctly, you will see the wan1 icon light up. If the light is not on, please check it again.
