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|
|South Australia, Northern Territory||126.96.36.199||188.8.131.52|
* Telstra does not take any responsibility for incorrect configuration of third-party modems.
