NCF uses two different passwords for modems and user accounts. Although these are explained on the various modem configuration pages, this article is intended to collect information on passwords into one location.
Here are the different passwords that NCF uses:
- Your NCF password (account password)
- This is the password that you chose for your NCF account when you signed up. It consists of eight to 30 numbers, letters or other characters.
- Your DSL password
- This is the password assigned that allows your DSL modem to sign onto the internet via Bell's wired network. It typically consists of 12 letters and numbers starting with "ncf". When you picked up your modem your DSL password will have been supplied to you along with instructions on a sheet of paper. If you have lost it the NCF office can look it up for you.
Password Uses and Changeability
Here are the places that NCF passwords are used:
|NCF Password Uses||Changeability|
|Signing into the start page||Can be changed by you anytime here|
|Signing into Zimbra webmail||Can be changed by you anytime here|
|Signing onto File Transfer Protocol (FTP) at ftp.ncf.ca to upload a web page||Can be changed by you anytime here|
|Having your dial-up modem sign onto NCF dial-up service||Can be changed by you anytime here|
|DSL Password Uses||Changeability|
|Your DSL modem signing onto the internet||cannot be changed without your DSL modem losing its connection|
|Signing into your DSL modem admin account to view the modem interface||used in this location can be changed by you anytime on the modem interface|
|Signing a device onto your wireless connection to your DSL modem to connect to the internet||used in this location can be changed by you anytime on the modem interface|
Note - The older Speedtouch 585 wireless modems sold by NCF until December 2011 come with a pre-programmed wifi password, which is given on the label on the bottom of the unit. NCF did not change these when they were shipped to members, but you can change them by signing onto the interface.
