Telstra Smart Modem

I am currently trying to connect my Apple MacBook to the Velocity internet via a Telstra smart modem.


The WiFi connects with no problems. But the when I try to connect to any website, the load bar will just stall half way and after a minute it will say Page failed to load.


But when I disconnect the WAN connection from the modem and let the modem switch to 4G, all the pages all loading properly.


Does anyone know how I can rectify this? I don't want to run on 4G all the time.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help
