Bright Box router - change settings to Fibre using the Migration Wizard

You may need to use the Migration Wizard to update the broadband type if:

  • You've already got a Bright Box router and are upgrading to Fibre Broadband
  • You're checking settings and they don't appear to be correct
  • You're having connection problems with your Bright Box

The steps below show you how.

Connect your computer to your router

First of all, connect your computer to your Bright Box. If possible, do this using an Ethernet cable, although connecting using wireless is OK.
 

Log in to your router's admin pages

  1. From a computer connected to your Bright Box router, go to 192.168.1.1 (opens in a new tab or window)



  2. The router's LOGIN SCREEN will open



  3. Enter the username and password for the admin pages
    • The username is admin (all lower case)
    • The password is on your KEEP MEE card and on a sticker on the bottom of your router



  4. Select LOGIN



  5. Select BASIC



  6. Select the Migration Wizard from the menu on the left



  7. Select FIBRE/ETHERNET in the ...New Default Broadband Type menu and select APPLY



  8. Select OK to proceed



  9. The migration countdown will begin and you can close your browser

 

Check your broadband status

  1. When your router has restarted, you'll be redirected to the login screen
  2. Enter your router's username and password
  3. Click LOGIN



  4. The STATUS page will open
  5. After a few minutes, your Broadband Username will be updated from readytoconnect@fs to your account username.
  6. The Internet Status will display as Connected


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