Preparation

Updated: 2018-08-20 Recommended Firmware Version: 2.5.0.14

Before you start configuring the SmartRG SR505n, there are 4 things to check:

  1. Firmware Check: Check if you're using older firmware and upgrade to the recommended firmware version. If you're unable to access the internet to request newer firmware, note that the screenshots shown and steps outlined may not align with what you see. Contact the support@ncf.ca for assistance if you run into problems.
  2. Factory Settings and Standard Configuration: These instructions assume you're configuring SmartRG SR505n modem out of the box or after a factory reset. If the modem is not new, it is recommended to reset the modem to the factory defaults by holding down the reset button with a paper clip for ~10 seconds.
    • Also, these settings are our recommendations for most NCF members. To learn more about making custom changes to your particular modem, consult the manual.
  3. Modem Installation - Configure over Ethernet: Consult the SmartRG SR505N modem instruction sheet (page 1) on how to set up the modem and connect to it over ethernet. We do not recommend configuring your modem over a WiFi connection.
  4. Configurations Methods: The 2 main ways of configuring the SmartRG SR505n modem:
    • Using a custom configuration File: You can request a custom configuration file for your NCF DSL connection from support@ncf.ca.
    • Manually following configuration steps
  5. Configuration Options:
    • Routed Operation with WiFi - Standard configuration for most members with SmartRG SR505n serving as both modem and WiFi router.
    • Routed Operation with separate WiFi Router - Recommended configuration for members with their own WiFi router. The modem will make the PPPoE authentication and both devices will negotiate DHCP.
    • Bridged Operation with separate WiFi Router - (Advanced) for members with their own routers and are knowledgeable about managing it themselves. The router with handle both authentication and DHCP.

Routed Operation with WiFi

The SmartRG SR505n modem router supports both ADSL mode and VDSL mode. Provided it is configured correctly, it can be switched between ADSL and VDSL plans without the owner having to buy a new modem or even reconfigure your existing one.

  • Note: Fees for changing plans may still apply. Consult: DSL Rates

Routed Operation with separate WiFi Router

Configure your modem for Routed Operation

If you have a router, we recommend the following configuration steps:

1. Follow the configuration steps outline for Routed Operation with WiFi and make the following changes:

  • Under Wireless, Uncheck the Enable Wireless Option,
  • Click Apply/Save
    SR505n-Wireless-Disabled
    SR505n-Wireless-Disabled

Router Configuration

2. On your router, set the Connection Mode or Type to Automatic IP, Automatic DHCP or Dynamic IP mode.

Bridge Operation

Do this only if you prefer to use your own external router rather than the one built into your SmartRG unit.

  1. Connect power and turn on the modem with the button on the back.
  2. Connect an Ethernet LAN cable to one of the yellow rear ports
  3. In the browser's address bar, enter the IP address for the modem interface page: 192.168.1.1
  4. If the modem is fresh from the factory, use the default user name and password to gain access
    1. user: admin
    2. password: admin

If the modem was previously configured for someone, the password would be the previous user's DSL password. If it is unknown then do a reset to factory default, using a paper-clip in the reset hole on the back. Hold for 6 to 9 seconds to reset. The user name and password will now be as above.

  1. Click on Advanced Setup and WAN Service and click on Add
  2. The defaults are fine; click on Next.
  3. Click on Bridging and ensure the 802.1P and 802.1Q are set to 0 and 35, then click on Next.
  4. Click on Apply/Save
  5. Done!

See screenshots below:

Firmware

We recommend that you only do firmware update over an ethernet connection and NOT via wifi. Also DO NOT power off the modem in the middle of a firmware update

The current firmware available to the NCF Office is 2.5.0.14. You can verify your firmware by checking the software version on the Device Info page.

SmartRG SR505n Firmware version check on Device Info Page
SmartRG SR505n Firmware version check on Device Info Page

To request a copy of this firmware email [support@ncf.ca]. To install this new firmware onto your modem perform the following steps:

  1. Download the firmware file and save it to a location on your computer that you can find easily.
  2. Open a web browser and go to the address http://192.168.1.1
  3. Select Manage Gateway (Advanced) and log in (by default the username is admin and password is your dsl password as shown in Getting Started above)
  4. Click on ManagementUpdate Software
  5. Click on Browse
  6. Upload the firmware file that you downloaded in step 1.
  7. Click Update Software
SR505n firmware update
SR505n firmware update

Note: the modem will reboot once the new firmware has been uploaded. This process may take up to 15 minutes to resync (DSL light returns to solid green) and reconnect (the internet light starts blinking again).
