NBN and modem installed in a cupboard...

Level 1

WiFi is on, but I want Ethernet.  There are 4 ethernet plugs in the cupboard too (or to my amateur eye, that's what they look like).  I'm hoping that if I connect my modem to one of those plugs, it will activate other plugs around my apartment.  Is that the case?  Surely I don't need to run a long cable from the cupboard modem to my computer.  I'd be grateful for someone's help, please.

Hi @Zandie ,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

Yes, you may connect the modem/router's LAN port to your Wall Ethernet port just simply change the connection mode to DHCP. You may visit this article: https://community.tpg.com.au/t5/Modems-and-Devices/Are-the-Tpg-routers-DHCP-compatible/m-p/25448#M25.... Please ensure that the Ethernet's wall socket are working/active.

 

Let us know how it will go and should you require further assistance.

 

Cheers!
