Setting up the Linksys SPNMX55CF

This article will show you how to set up the Linksys SPNMX55CF Community Fibre ISP.

Before you begin:

  • If you have reset your node and need to set it up again, do not attempt to set up the node with the Linksys app.  The Linksys SPNMX55CF supports Auto Configuration Server (ACS) which means once the node is powered ON and connected to the ISP equipment, it will begin to detect an internet connection automatically and configure itself as the parent node.
  • Once the light turns solid blue, it indicates that the node is online.  You can now use the Linksys app to manage your network.   You can also use the Linksys app to add nodes to extend your WiFi.
  • The node's default WiFi name (SSID) is CommunityFibre10Gb_xxxxx where xxxxx is the last five digits of the MAC address.
  • Once the parent node has an internet connection, the default admin password will automatically change to the default WiFi password.
  • Steps may vary depending on the operating system of your mobile device.


IMPORTANT:  The Linksys SPNMX55CF is normally set up by the ISP installers.  However, in situations when you reset the node and want to set it up again, follow the steps below:
