What's the purpose of this guide?
This will help you get started with your ADSL2+ with Homephone service.
Before you get started, you need:
1. Email advising service has been installed
2. ADSL2+ compatible modem/router or TPG supplied modem/router (current modem TP-Link WD9970).
3. An ADSL Filter/Splitter
It’s time to plug in your ADSL2+ compatible modem/router to your telephone socket.
Manually configuring the modem (if required)
Note: If you get your modem from TPG, you are not required to configure your modem as TPG has already configured your modem with your account details.
Connecting wireless devices to your TPG modem/router
You can connect your wireless devices using the information written on the sticker of your modem/router. The SSID is your wireless name that should be visible on the sticker on the bottom of the modem. Use the wireless password in order to connect securely to your modem/router.
That's all! If you have any trouble getting online, reach out on TPG Community or give us a call on 13 14 23 and we’ll be happy to help.
If you don't have a telephone handset or if you have no intention of using the included home phone service, you can simply connect your modem directly to the telephone wall socket without using the supplied DSL splitter.
On the other hand, if you want to connect your telephone handset on a wall socket separate from where the modem is connected (for example, in a different room), then you need to use the DSL filter on that phone.
