#1 plug laptop into eth0

#2 Edgerouter X defaults to 192.168.1.1 as did the TG589vac, but that doesn’t matter as it is now just a modem

#3 get on same net segment… statically configure laptop to
IP 192.168.1.42 (’cause Douglas Adams, obvs)
NM 255.255.255.0
DG 192.168.1.1

#4 Browser to 192.168.1.1, default login usr and pswd: ‘ubnt’ / ‘ubnt’

Dice!
