When can I connect my Telstra modem?
If you received a Telstra Gateway Frontier®/Telstra Smart Modem™, you can plug it in and connect to the internet when you receive it.
If it’s any other kind of Telstra-supplied modem, make sure your home broadband connection is active before you plug it in.
How do I find out if my connection is active?
- Check to see if your broadband has been activated using our online order tracker
- If your service is on the nbn™ network use our online nbn order tracker
- View your order status on your Telstra 24x7 My Account dashboard.
If your connection is active, you can go ahead and plug in your new modem.
