Abstract

A new node (3) is initially connected to a network as a host. The new node (3) is first configured as a host in the network. The new node receives an address (e.g., IP address) during the host configuration process. This address is then used to transfer router configuration data from another node in the network to the new node in order to configure the new node as a router. When the new node has received the router configuration data, it can switch from a host mode to a router mode and thereafter function at least as a router in the network. This enables a router to be configured at least partially in an automatic manner after being connected to a network. Certain manual router configuration requirements of the prior art may thus be avoided in certain embodiments.
