Bright Box 2 Wireless Router - change settings to Fibre using the Migration Wizard

You may need to use the Migration Wizard to update settings if:

  • You've already got a Bright Box 2 and are upgrading to Fibre Broadband
  • You're checking settings and they don't appear to be correct
  • You've been fiddling, and want to reset your Fibre Broadband settings (but not all your router settings)

The steps below show you how.

Log in to your router's admin pages

From a computer connected to your Bright Box 2:

  1. Go to 192.168.1.1 (opens in a new tab or window)

    Enter 192.168.1.1 into browser address bar

  2. The router's login screen will open

    Router's admin pages

  3. Enter the username and password for the admin pages

    - The username is admin (all lower case)
    - The password can be found on a sticker on the bottom of your router

Check your Fibre Broadband status

    Enter the username and password for the router's admin pages

  6. The Broadband Status and Internet Status will display as Connected

This can take up-to 5 minutes - if you're still not connected, see our Bright Box 2 connection guide.
