Setting up your Linksys SPNMX42HF-UK for Hey!Broadband ISP WiFi 6 Whole Home Mesh System

This article will show you how to set up and configure your Linksys SPNMX42HF-UK for Hey!Broadband ISP WiFi 6 Whole Home Mesh System.

Before you begin, take note of the following:

  • The default WiFi name is Hey!Broadband_xxxx where xxxx is the last four digits of the MAC address.
  • After setup, you can then link your Linksys network to your Linksys cloud account using the Linksys app to manage your network from anywhere.
  • Admin password - Once the parent node has an internet connection, the default password will automatically change to the default WiFi password located on the product label.  A node on factory defaults with no internet connection uses admin as the default password.
  • Auto Configuration Server support (ACS) - This node supports Automatic Setup via ACS with Hey!Broadband.  It means that once the node is plugged into the Hey!Broadband modem, the node will call home and download the internet profile and automatically configure itself.  Once the light turns solid blue, the node is set up and online
NOTE:  DO NOT try to set up the node with the Linksys app while the node is going through the ACS setup because the Linksys app will not detect the node.  Wait until the node self-configures and the status light is solid blue.
Step 1:
Connect an ethernet cable from your modem's 10GE port to the internet port of the Linksys node.
Step 2:
Power ON your node and wait for the status light to turn solid purple, indicating that is ready for setup.  The status light will then begin to flash white, which indicates that the node is going through an ACS setup.

Step 3:
Wait a few minutes until the status light turns solid blue.  This may take a few minutes.  Once the status light is solid blue, the router is ready to use.

NOTE:  If the status light does not begin to flash in white, check your connection from the Linksys node to your ISP equipment, and make sure both devices are powered ON.
Step 4:
Now you can connect your mobile devices using the WiFi name and password located on the product label of the node.

Your node is now set up.  To manage your node with the Linksys app, proceed to the next step.

Step 5:
Download the latest Linksys app.  For an Android™ device, click here.  For iOS devices, click here.

Step 6:
Create a Linksys cloud account or log in with your existing credentials.

Step 7:
Click Add to Account when prompted.

When prompted for the node's password, enter the default WiFi password located on the product label


Your node is now linked to your Linksys cloud account.
