Follow the instructions below to set up your iiNet FTTH (Fibre to the Home) services such as OptiComm or RedTrain.

First, ensure you have:

  • A message from us advising you to plug in your modem.
  • An electrical outlet near your FTTH Connection Box.
  1. Connect the power cable from your modem's Power Port to an electrical outlet.
  2. Connect the included Ethernet cable from the blue WAN port on your modem to the LAN1 or Ethernet 1 port on your FTTH Connection Box. Examples of connection boxes can be found here.
  3. Make sure the electrical outlet for your modem is on, and press the modem's Power button.
  4. To plug in additional devices via Ethernet cable, simply connect the Ethernet cables to any of the four yellow LAN ports on your modem.
  5. If you wish to use your iiNet Netphone service, plug a compatible handset into the grey Phone1 port on your modem.

  7. Next, it's time to configure your modem settings. On a device that's connected to your modem via Ethernet or WiFi, visit http://192.168.1.1.
  8. Log in with the default username admin and default password admin, or use your custom login details.
  9. Select PPPoE.
  10. Enter the following settings:

    Username: Your FTTH broadband username (this can be found in emails about your FTTH order)
    Password: Your FTTH broadband password (please use our password reset tool if you've forgotten your password)
    Confirm Password: Your FTTH broadband password
     
    PPPoE Settings
  11. Hit Save to finish and allow up to 5 minutes for the new settings to apply.
  12. Check the lights on your modem. If the Internet light is green, you're online!

We recommend connecting over the 5GHz WiFi channel for faster performance. See Improving WiFi Signal.
