Setting up your modem

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.

 

Connection help

  1. Identify your technology type (you can find this on your welcome email)

If you have selected an nbn™ home phone, your phone will not work with the standard phone socket. Instead, it will now work via the internet - it's called VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). The good thing is you keep your phone number. You will receive an SMS from us letting you know when your phone service is active, just follow the easy steps below:

a. Connect the phone cable between phone1 port (grey) on modem and your home phone. Refer to below diagram.

b. Switch the modem off
