NBN and modem installed in a cupboard...

Level 2

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: Please ensure that the Ethernet's wall socket are working/active.
