If you prefer your own external router rather than the one built into your SmartRG unit, we recommend [[#Routed Operation with separate WiFi Router|routed operation with a separate WiFi Router]]. However if you have networking expertise and are confident using the modem in bridge mode then take note of the following before configuring your SmartRG for Bridged operation:
 
# Once you complete configuring your SmartRG modem for Bridged operation and disconnect from the modem, the Modem's Web Interface will become inaccessible and you may not be able to regain access to it until you reset the modem.
 
#* '''Backup Settings:''' It is particularly important to backup the '''Running Settings''' on your modem before and after you configure it.
 
#* '''To reset the modem:''' If you need to reset the modem, insert a paper-clip in the '''Reset''' hole on the back. Hold for 10 seconds to reset.
 
# If you set up the modem for Bridge operation, then your router will need to be configured in PPPoE mode with your DSL username and password.

Revision as of 10:24, 29 August 2018

Preparation

Updated: 2018-08-29 Recommended Firmware Version: 2.6.1.6

The SmartRG SR506n 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

Before you start configuring the SmartRG SR506n, 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 SR506n 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 SR506N 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.

Configuration

Methods

The 2 main ways of configuring the SmartRG SR506n modem:

Options

    • Routed Operation - Standard configuration for most members with SmartRG SR506n 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.
