# '''Factory Settings:''' '''If you pick up a modem from the NCF office, it should already be configured for your account.''' These instructions are for configuring the modem from elsewhere or after it is been reset to factory settings.  If the modem is not new, we recommend resetting it by '''holding down the reset button with a paper clip for about 10 seconds'''.
 
#* We recommend these settings for most NCF members. To learn more about what the settings do and more advanced settings, consult the [[Modem Manuals|manual]].
 
#'''Ethernet Connection:''' Consult the [https://www.ncf.ca/ncf/support/w/images/4/4b/About_your_SmartRG_SR516ac.pdf About your SmartRG SR516ac modem instruction sheet] to learn how to connect the modem''. We recommend configuring the modem using a computer connected by an ethernet cable, as opposed to over a wireless connection.''
 
=Configuration=
 
'''If you pick up a modem from the NCF office, it should already be configured for your account.''' You can follow our instructions to configure the modem yourself, or contact [mailto:support@ncf.ca support@ncf.ca] if you would like to bring your modem to our office to be configured.

When you first connect the Hitron CODA-4680, you'll be prompted to complete the Hitron EasyConnect Quick Setup. EasyConnect tests the internet connection to ensure that it is working, and will prompt you to set a Wi-Fi network name and password that you would like to use. The password you set in EasyConnect also serves as the password you will use when logging into the modem to access its configuration. You must successfully complete the EasyConnect Setup before you can use your internet connection-- if EasyConnect finds that the connection to the internet is not working, you will be unable to set a Wi-Fi network name and password.

*Connect a device to the modem in one of two ways:
 +
*# Plug an ethernet cable from your device's network card to any one of the LAN ports on the back of the modem, or
 +
*# Connect a device to the modem's EasyConnect Wi-Fi network. The EasyConnect Wi-Fi network only connects your device to the modem, it will not connect your device to the internet. The EasyConnect Wi-Fi network name and password is specific to your modem, and can be found on the label on the back of the modem. It takes the form of:
 +
*#*'''Default Wi-Fi Network:''' CODAXXXXX-EasyConnect    ''(XXXXX is a series of numbers)''
 +
*#*'''Default key:''' ZZZZZZZXXXXX    ''(a series of numbers)''
 +
