SWBR5400 & NTL

This procedure for connecting the SWBR5400 with NTL has been shown to work and it has also been reported that other users have had success with Blueyonder.

  • Connect your PC to the SWBR.
  • Power up the SWBR
  • Once it has settled down power up the PC
  • Make sure that it is getting an IP address from the SWBR if using DHCP on the SWBR.
  • If not, set the IP address of the PC to be in the range of the SWBR (normally uses 192.168.123.
  • so set it to Set the default gateway to & subnet mask should set automatically to Set the first DNS server to
  • With the above you should now be able to access the SWBR by typing in your browser. If not then there appears to be a problem between the router and the PC.
  • Assuming that you have reached the router status page, log in as admin (pw default is admin).
  • Power up the CM. Give it about 30 secs or so to stabilise.
  • Connect the CM output to the WAN input of the router.
  • On the admin status page of the router, click the RENEW button at the right of the Remaining Lease time row. It should say ‘configuring’ on the right of the Gateway row.
  • You may have to click on the RENEW button 2 or 3 times before it picks up the info from the CM.
