VDSL Appointments
Tip! If you are trying to see an appointment in FWFM, you will need to add VDSL to the end of the phone number.
If the customer's phone number is (905) 555-6666, then in FWFM enter 9055556666VDSL and pressSubmit. This will show you all VDSL-related appointments.

Clients often call with a wireless issue and router configurations must be redone. Configuring the wireless is easier if a wired connection is set up. Agents can use Log Me In, to configure both the customer's modem and computer. If the client does not have an extra ethernet cable to connect to the router you may have to call CPOC for a tech appointment.

In order to access the 6520 firmware, you can try a direct connection from the 6520 modem to the computer to configure the wireless settings. Keep in mind that many customers are seniors and are physically unable to set up a wired connection. Call CPOC (CPOC ON 1 866 915 3212 Mon-Sun 8:00-21:00) to book a tech.

1. Unplug the Ethernet cable from port 4 on the router and plug it into port 1,2 or 3.

2. Unplug the Ethernet cable from ExpressVu and plug it into P.C

3. Login to and go through setup.

4. After entering the User ID/Pass you will get an error as there is no connection to the EXVU receiver.

5. Press “Back” and a “Skip” option will be available to continue wireless configurations.

6. Once the setup is finished, reverse step 1 and 2.

7. Setup the PC wireless adapter.

8. Is the customer able to connect with a wired connection but unable to connect wirelessly? Check the wireless card on the computer.

9.Type > basic set up > (left side) How do I check if my home network is working properly?
