The TP-Link TD-W9970 Modem Front
The TP-Link TD-W9970 Modem Back

The TP-Link TD-W9970 is for use on any service on networks using Bells' DSL infrastructure. To learn more about configuring your particular modem, consult the manual.

Routed

The TP-Link TD-W9970 modem router supports both ADSL and VDSL, and switches automatically to match the line it is connected to.

VDSL

Routed | VDSL | ADSL | DNS Fix | UPnP | Time | Manage Control | CWMP | FirewallBridge | VDSL | ADSLSee Also

We will start with the mode used for VDSL connections. These include the following NCF DSL Plans:

  • Freedom 10-7/Unl
  • Freedom 15-10/Unl
  • Freedom 25/Unl
  • Freedom 50/Unl

Quick Setup

NOTE: If the modem is brand new, "user name: admin" and "password: admin" will gain access.

If the modem is not new, it is recommended to reset the modem to the factory defaults by holding down the Reset/Wi-Fi button for 6 to 9 seconds and then do step 1.

1. Once you access the modem from your browser at http://192.168.1.1 and login (user name: admin and password: admin), click the Quick Setup link in the Menu on the left.

Then click Next on the Quick Setup-Start page.

Do this only if you prefer to use your own external router rather than the one built into your TP-Link 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, press the reset/Wi-Fi button on the back. Hold for 6 to 9 seconds to reset. The user name and password will now be as above.
