I am trying to configure DrayTek Vigor26000V router with TelstraClear cable modem. I am basically trying to transfer my
PC IPConfig details onto the router, but not sure where exactly the details should go. I tried with DHCP 
server on the router but didn't work. Can somebody guide me in the right direction please.

IP address details obviously go on the WAN interface, so you are currently very confused. Given Draytek WAN interface is ADSL (I haven't checked the specs) it can't be used anyway.

The 2600V can't be used as a NAT router with a cable modem. It's designed for ADSL only so if of no use as a router.

You can use it as an ATA fine by specifying a local IP and plugging your network into the LAN port.

Do you mean to say I wouldn't be able to use it by itself or even in conjunction with Motorola Flexi Board cable modem. Thanks

If you want to use it just for the VoIP ATA then you can use it but only for that.

It can't be used as a router/firewall for cable modems (or any other ethernet device). It's only designed for ADSL.
