If you prefer to do this, we recommend getting a qualified network specialist to set up your equipment.

Network settings for your Compatible Modem.
To access your network settings, you’ll need to login to your Compatible Modem or router’s default gateway server.
Please check your User Guide for details on how to access your network settings before you configure your Compatible Modem.
Here’s how your Compatible Modem general network settings should be configured.
- Set the Network Connection Type to IPoE.
Difference between PPPoE, Dynamic, and Static IP
For some modems or routers, this is referred to as either DHCP or Dynamic IP.
- If you are connecting to FTTN or FTTB, set the DSL Modulation type in your modem settings to VDSL2 or Auto-sync Up.
- Set the L2 Maximum Transfer Unit (MTU) size to 1500 Bytes.
Don’t set it any higher as this can affect the performance of your nbn™ service.
- Set the Upstream Maximum Bit Rate (MBR) to the uplink speed profile of the nbn™ service that you’re subscribed to.
