A Domain Name Server, or DNS, is what lets your modem communicate with the internet.

If you’re a Telstra broadband customer you should use the Domain Name Server IP address which is assigned to you during login.

However, if you purchased a third-party modem*, or you had to hard reset your Telstra-supplied modem, you may need to manually assign your DNS.

Which DNS Settings should I use?

If you need to manually assign your modem’s DNS, select the IP address according to your State:

Telstra’s DNS Settings:

State Primary DNS Server IP Address Secondary DNS Server IP Address
NSW 61.9.194.49 61.9.195.193
Victoria 61.9.133.193 61.9.134.49
Queensland 61.9.211.33 61.9.211.1
Tasmania 61.9.188.33 61.9.134.49
ACT 61.9.207.1 61.9.195.193
South Australia, Northern Territory 61.9.226.33 61.9.194.49
Western Australia 61.9.242.33 61.9.226.33
