    Have your modem powered on and connected directly to your PC via Ethernet Cable before you begin, as these instructions are based on wired Ethernet connection.

2. NETWORK CONFIGURATION
PPPoE connection uses authentication to establish the Internet connection and once connected your modem will be assigned an IP and DNS settings from TPG.
To begin, your PC needs to receive a private IP address from the modem. Most modems have DHCP enabled by default that will take care of this.

4.CHANGE OF PASSWORD
For security purposes we highly recommend that you change your
password if you are using your default or if you believe your password security has been compromised.
To change your password, first please visit tpg.com.au/password
Your new password will take approximately 10-15 minutes to take effect, after which you must reconfigure your new password in your router.

 

 

PLEASE NOTE:
Each time your router is powered on, it will initialize this automated authentication process after which your router will receive a public IP address (fixed or dynamic depending on your plan) and DNS settings from TPG.
