If you have access to email, we can send you a file to automatically configure the modem with your NCF account and our recommended settings, which is much easier than going through all the steps manually.  You can request a config file from [mailto:support@ncf.ca support@ncf.ca] then follow our [[SmartRG SR516ac Config from File|instructions to configure your modem with a config file]].
