Modem Setup Guides

When connecting to the nbn, we recommend that you use a Dodo modem*, however you can use your own modem so long as it’s compatible with the nbn technology available at your address, and not locked to another provider.

*Our technical support team are fully trained on Dodo branded hardware, we can only offer limited support for non-Dodo devices, depending on the age, make and model of your device. 

Depending on your nbn connection type, your modem will need a ‘DSL’ port, or a ‘WAN’ port, if your modem has both of these, you should be able to use it.

FTTN (Fibre to the Node) and FTTB (Fibre to the Basement) both require a ‘DSL’ port, other technology types use a ‘WAN’ port.

Ports

If you’re unsure of your nbn technology type, you can find it in your Dodo welcome email, if you are still unsure you can log a request using My Dodo.
