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.

This is the procedure NCF uses to configure a TP-Link TD-W9970 modem out of the box or after a factory reset. To learn more about configuring your particular modem, consult the manual.

Configure router for Dual-Mode ADSL/VDSL operation

Your router can support both ADSL and VDSL modes. If necessary, you could switch between ADSL and VDSL plans without having to buy a new router or even reconfigure your existing one.

Settings for VDSL

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.

Configuring Time Settings

Turn on the Firewall

  • Click 'Firewall' in the left column
  • Select 'Enable Firewall'

Configure as bridge

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
