DSL modem web interface

Line stats displayed on a TP-Link 8901G modem web interface

DSL modems contain a computer comparable to a desktop or laptop computer running a Linux operating system. For the purposes of configuring it, there are several ways to communicate with that computer, but the easiest way is to use a web browser.

Open a web browser on any computer connected by ethernet or wireless to your DSL modem. Type in the address bar of your browser:

and press Enter. This is address of your DSL modem, and it will load its interface, which looks and acts like a web page.

If you are prompted for a Username and Password, enter:

  • Username:
    • "Administrator" (SpeedTouch 585 and 516v6)
    • "ncfdsl" (SpeedTouch 516v5)
    • "admin" (TP-Link, Sagemcom and SmartRG)
  • Password: (enter here the password provided to you by NCF for your modem)

If the modem was pre-configured by NCF, the password is provided to you on a sheet of paper with your modem package; it is not the same as your NCF StartPage password. If your modem was reset to factory defaults then for a Speedtouch it will not require a password to log in. For TP-Link, Sagemcom and SmartRG modems the default password is admin.

Once logged in, the modem will display the web interface page and allow you to read statistics or to configure it and make changes.
