    Settings for all connection types

    These settings are required regardless of the type of nbn connection you have:

    • Internet Connection Type/Protocol: IPoE/DHCP/Automatic
    • VLAN ID/Tagging: Blank/No/0
    • IP Configuration: Dynamic/obtain IP address automatically
    • No Username or password.

    Settings for FTTN/B

    These settings are required for fibre to the node and fibre to the basement connections.

    • Seamless Rate Adaption (SRA): Enabled
    • VDSL2 Profile: 17a
    • G.Vector: Enabled
    • Non-standard G.Vector: disabled
    • G.INP: Enabled

    Some modems may not have all these settings, but modems capable of VDSL2 and purchased in Australia should come pre-configured to work on FTTN/B.


    An incorrectly configured modem may cause connection issues and we can’t provide support for your third party device.
