Putting iiNet Modems into Safe Mode

G.DMT ("safe mode") applies to ADSL2+ or Naked DSL services only. Alternatively, on-net customers may toggle their Connection Profile to Safe Mode in Toolbox.

G.DMT mode has a maximum speed limit of 8Mbps but it also provides the most stability, making it useful if your connection is suffering dropouts.

If your modem was not purchased from iiNet, please check the manufacturer's website for support information.
