Answer

How to connect a router to NBN FTTP? The process of connecting a router to NBN FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) is as follows:

  • Locate your nbn™ connection box inside your premise.
  • Connect the black power cord to the black port on the nbn™ box and the other end to a power outlet.
  • Use an Ethernet cable, typically blue or yellow, and connect it from the UNID port of the nbn™ box to the WAN port of your modem. Some modems might label the WAN port as “Internet”.
  • Once connected, you can then connect your devices to one of the LAN ports on your modem to access the internet.
  • For a wireless setup, refer to the wireless security card for the Wi-Fi network name and password. This card can usually be found inside the modem box or on a sticker at the base of the modem
