Recommended Firmware Version: 2.6.2.6

SmartRG firmware update/s available to NCF members only. Firmware updates have been validated and tested against a custom configuration for NCF DSL members. Non-NCF requests will be disregarded.

Caution:

  • We recommend that you only do firmware updates over an Ethernet connection and NOT via Wi-Fi.
  • DO NOT power off the modem during a firmware update, as this will cause your modem become unresponsive (stuck in brick/recovery mode).

You can verify your firmware by checking the software version on the Device Info page. ⚠Caution: Modems with firmware older than version 2.5.0.14 must be first upgraded to version 2.5.0.14 before upgrading to version 2.6.2.6. Failure to do so may cause functionality problems which will not be covered by the manufacturer's warranty.
