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

The 2 main ways of configuring the SmartRG SR506n modem:

Options

    • 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.
