The [[Modem Manuals#Bell Home Hub 2000, four ethernet ports, wireless "AC" ADSL+VDSL|Bell Home Hub 2000 or Sagemcom FAST5250]] is an ADSL/VDSL modem.  As of 2017-05-05, the modem supports all of the DSL speeds available from NCF (i.e. from 6-0.8 to 50-10).
 
 
 
===Factory Reset and Logging in===
 
'''It's best to congifure this modem from factory settings but that means that you existing internet connection will be lost(if your moving from another DSL provider to NCF).'''
 
 
 
:1. Connect the modem to DSL connection and via Ehternet to the computer. Perform a factory reset by holding the '''reset''' button on the side of the modem down for 30 seconds.  Wait for the '''Power''' light to flash 5 times and release the reset button.
 
 
 
: After a factory reset,
 
 
 
:* Configuration server username is "Administrator"
 
:* Configuration server password is "admin"
 
:* Gateway and configuration server are 192.168.2.1
 
:* The firewall is enabled and properly configured
 
:* The modem will connect to ADSL or VDSL
 
:* The modem is not configured to authenticate for an NCF Internet connection
 
:* Wi-Fi is enabled with a default configuration that must be changed
 
:* WPS is enabled
 
 
 
:2. Enter [[http://192.168.2.1 192.168.2.1]] into the address bar of your browser
 
[[File:Bell_HH2000p1.png|600px| Bell Home Hub 2000 Login]]
 
 
 
===Changing Internet/PPPoE Login Settings===
 
 
 
:3. After any successful login, the modem configuration server may ask if you want to use password recovery.  Choose "No" because the Bell password recovery would only work for a Bell DSL customer.
 
 
 
:4. At the Top Left of the Landing page, click on '''Fibe Internet'''.
 
[[File:Bell_HH2000p2.png|600px| Bell Home Hub 2000 Landing]]
 
 
 
The Status will say '''disconnected''' if there's currently no working internet/PPPoE configuration settings on the modem.
 
 
 
[[File:Bell_HH2000p3.png|600px| Bell Home Hub 2000 Internet Settings]]
 
 
 
:5. Click on the '''Settings''' button and enter the default password '''admin''' when prompted.
 
[[File:Bell_HH2000p4.png|600px| Bell Home Hub 2000 admin login prompt]]
 
 
 
:6. Enter your NCF DSL /PPPoE username and password into the '''Username''' and '''Password''' fields and click '''Save'''. It could take up to 30 seconds for the Status to change to '''Connected'''.
 
:* Your DSL/PPPoE username is in the format '''aa000@ncf.ca''' and your DSL/PPPoE password can be obtained from [mailto:support@ncf.ca support@ncf.ca] if you cannot locate it.
 
 
 
[[File:Bell_HH2000p5.png|600px| Bell Home Hub 2000 Internet Login Changes]]
 
 
 
 
 
===Changing WiFi Settings===
 
:7. After getting a successful internet authentication, go back to the home page and click on the '''WiFi settings''' button below the listed WiFi networks in the  '''Manage my Wi-Fi''' section.  If prompted for the admin password enter '''admin''' like before.
 
 
 
:8. Select the '''Primary''' tab on the left of the page. Set the '''WiFi SSID''' and the '''WiFi password''' in the 2.4Ghz network. Click '''Save''' at the bottom of the page.
 
:* Keeping the same network name (SSID) for '''2.4GHz''' and '''5GHz''' wifi connections is okay so far as you understand the pros and cons. If you set diffferent network names you will be able to determine which works better on specific clients. However, we understand this involves additional post-configuration work that not all members are interested in or equipped for.
 
 
 
At this point, the modem will be ready for test on ADSL/VDSL (whatever connection you have) and also over wifi.
 
 
 
===Change the Administrative Password===
 
:9. Return to the Home page and click on the '''Modem Settings''' link at the bottom of the page and enter the default password "admin" when prompted.
 
:10. Click '''Change''' under the '''Password''' section of the '''Administrator Settings'''
 
:11. Enter the Current Password '''admin''', the new password and confirm the new password and select '''Save'''
 
:* NCF recommends using your DSL password as administrative password for your modem. If you choose to use something else, please make a note of it so your can remember it.
 
 
 
===Testing on alternate DSL connection===
 
This is usually only available or necessary the NCF office as many members only have on DSL connection at their premise.
 
 
 
After testing on ADSL, disconnect and unplug the modem, and then reconnect it with VDSL.  The modem will probably assign a different IP address to the computer so, at the computer, you should disconnect and then reconnect the modem interface.  You may also have to re-enter the DSL login password, but the DSL login ID will already be present.
 
 
 
At this point, the modem will be ready for test on VDSL.

DSL Quick Configuration Info
VPI / VCI (ADSL) 0.35
VLAN (VDSL) 35
Protocol PPPoE
DSL username (eg. aa999@ncf.ca)
DSL Password Starts with 'ncf' (not the same

Modems are available for sale to NCF members only. If you don't require configuration, modem sales can be handled over-the-counter in the office.

You have several choices:

Current modems sold by NCF

Older modems previously sold by NCF

Unsupported Modems

Bell allows its DSL customers to either rent or buy their modems. Some of the modems become available as used modems. The modems will work well on the Bell lines used by NCF DSL members.
