Connect VPN to Sagemcom 5866T Modem

Level 2

I am using a Sagemcom 5866T Modem provided by TPG.  Now I am thinking of subscribing a VPN service.  Can the Sagemcom 5866T Modem be connected to a VPN?  If not, what should I do?

Thank you.



Hi @Helpplease


You may need to inquire with the VPN provider on what's the requirement for their system to work.


Be reminded that your Home Wireless/5G Home Wireless broadband is using CG-NAT.


What is CG-NAT?

Techy types should be aware that Home Wireless Broadband uses CG-NAT. Carrier-grade NAT (Network Address Translation) is a type of network that assigns services with a private IP address, instead of a dynamic public IP address. Our network will then translate that private address into a public address. This means that the following items (which depend on internal NAT) will not work on Home Wireless Broadband:


  • Port forwarding
  • Hosting web, email or file servers internally
  • Smart Home systems (e.g. accessing security camera footage remotely, home automation and printers)
  • Remote Access (i.e. accessing your home computer or devices from another location)


Have a good day!
