This is one of those chicken-and-egg deals. You can't talk to the GUI
until the LAN interface has an IP address, and therefore you can't use the
GUI to assign the address (at least, not the first time).
So, you have to use the console to assign which interface you want to be
the LAN, and the IP address for that interface. Everything after that you
can do by pointing a browser at the freshly assigned address.

Once you can connect to the GUI (see above), on the left-hand navigation
bar you should see "Interfaces (assign)". Click on the word "assign".
