BYO Modem Pre-requisites 
Confirm your BYO modem is "unlocked" if from another RSP, compatible with the NBN service at your premises and is connected properly by following this supporting article before continuing.

Restart/Reset Your Modem
When properly connected, most modems will auto-detect the required settings and automatically connect for you. If your modem does not go online after 5-10 minutes, try the following.

Turn the modem off for 2 minutes then turn it back on again. Wait 5-10 minutes for the modem to connect.

If the modem still does not connect, try factory resetting the modem as per the manufacturer's instructions. Usually, there will be a small recessed "reset" button in the back of the modem. With the modem powered on, hold this button in for 10-15 seconds then release it. (Note that customs settings will need to be re-applied). Wait 5-10 minutes for the modem to connect.

Notes before resetting
  • A reset will remove any changes you have made to the settings on your modem, including Wi-Fi password changes.
  • If you are using a mobile phone, it's always best to switch to 4g before the reset to avoid any service disruptions.
NOTE: For instructions on how to restart or reset your nbn™ equipment please visit this link.
