TPlink modem/router AC2800 from NBN connection



I would like to connect my netgear AC2800 modem/router I have the NBN connected with the telstra supplied modem. 


I have managed to somehow get my home phone reworking after 3 years.......since the NBN has been connected.


I have tried to connect to the netgear router with the supplied web managment pages but it goes directly to the telstra one. 


I would like to know how to reconfige this telstra one to the netgear one thanks.

Was this helpful?

Re: TPlink modem/router AC2800 from NBN connection

To configure AC2800 connect your device directly to the AC2800 and disconnect device from Telstra modem. Open a web browser and go to


Set TP Link internet connection type as DHCP or Auto IP page 13 of manual.

Connect TP link directly to NBN and connect Telstra modem's WAN port to a LAN port of TP Link modem.

Turn off WFi on Telstra modem and connect all devices to TP Link modem.

If you have trouble with incoming calls change SIP ALG settings on TP Link modem. Page 65 of manual.




Telstra Smart Modem

Plug in and connect in minutes. Smart.
