The TP-Link TD-W9970 is for use on service over 25 MB/s on networks using Bells' DSL infrastructure. NCF sells these modems for members on 25 MB and faster service.
 
  
This is the procedure NCF uses to configure a TP-Link TD-W9970 modem out of the box or after a factory reset. To learn more about configuring your particular modem, consult the [[Modem manuals (DSL)|manual]].

=Routed=
Your router can support both ADSL mode and VDSL mode. If necessary, you could switch between ADSL plans and VDSL plans without having to buy a new router or even reconfigure your existing one.
 
  
===Settings for VDSL===
+
The TP-Link TD-W9970 modem router supports both ADSL and VDSL, and switches automatically to match the line it is connected to.  
We will start with the mode used for VDSL connections. These include the following NCF DSL Plans:
 
* Freedom 15-10/300
 
* Freedom 25/300
 
* Freedom 50/300

'''IMPORTANT NOTE:''' The Quick Setup process will not set the Wireless Security to use WPA2 exclusively with AES-- this means more recent devices connecting to the device may warn of insufficient security when connecting over Wi-Fi. To avoid this, after completing the Quick Setup, access the Wireless settings for the device, and ensure only '''WPA2''' is selected for the Security protocol, and '''AES''' for the encryption method. A selection of WPA/WPA2 and AES/TKIP is less secure and will cause newer device to issue warnings.

The TP-Link TD-W9970 Modem Front
The TP-Link TD-W9970 Modem Back

The TP-Link TD-W9970 is for use on any service on networks using Bell's DSL infrastructure. To learn more about configuring your particular modem, consult the manual.

Routed

The TP-Link TD-W9970 modem router supports both ADSL and VDSL, and switches automatically to match the line it is connected to.

VDSL

Routed | VDSL | ADSL | DNS Fix | UPnP | Time | Manage Control | CWMP | FirewallBridge | VDSL | ADSLSee Also

We will start with the mode used for VDSL connections.

If the modem is new, a user name of admin and password of admin will gain access to the modem configuration. If the modem is not new, it is recommended to reset the modem to the factory default settings by holding down the Reset/Wi-Fi button for 6 to 9 seconds before continuing to Quick Setup Step 1 below.

Quick Setup

1. Once you access the modem from your browser at http://192.168.1.1 and login (user name: admin and password: admin), click the Quick Setup link in the Menu on the left.

Then click Next on the Quick Setup-Start page.

Wireless

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Quick Setup process will not set the Wireless Security to use WPA2 exclusively with AES-- this means more recent devices connecting to the device may warn of insufficient security when connecting over Wi-Fi. To avoid this, after completing the Quick Setup, access the Wireless settings for the device, and ensure only WPA2 is selected for the Security protocol, and AES for the encryption method. A selection of WPA/WPA2 and AES/TKIP is less secure and will cause newer device to issue warnings.

Do this only if you prefer to use your own external router rather than the one built into your TP-Link unit.

  1. Connect power and turn on the modem with the button on the back.
  2. Connect an Ethernet LAN cable to one of the yellow rear ports
  3. In the browser's address bar, enter the IP address for the modem interface page: 192.168.1.1
  4. If the modem is fresh from the factory, use the default user name and password to gain access
    1. user: admin
    2. password: admin

If the modem was previously configured for someone, the password would be the previous user's DSL password. If it is unknown then do a reset to factory default, press the reset/Wi-Fi button on the back. Hold for 6 to 9 seconds to reset. The user name and password will now be as above.
