SmartRG SR506N Links

NCF Support is available to make configuring your SmartRG modem easier and to help you avoid potential mistakes. Here are simpler configuration options for your SmartRG modem:

  1. You can request a custom configuration file for your NCF DSL connection from support@ncf.ca.
    • You may need an alternate means of accessing the internet to download the configuration file.
  2. Call 613-721-1773 x0 to book a Modem Appointment.

If you prefer your own external router rather than the one built into your SmartRG unit, we recommend 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
