ASUS DSL-AC68U/ASUS 4G-AC68U Modem Router Setup

Last Updated: Wednesday, 3 May 2023

The ASUS DSL-AC68U is a popular nbn® modem router that will also work with Opticomm connections. This product is both a modem and a Wi-Fi router, so you can use it without an additional device on nbn® FTTN and FTTB connections.

Configure the Asus DSL-AC68U and ASUS 4G-AC 68U Modem Router for nbn® FTTN and FTTB

We recommend configuring the ASUS Modem/Router before connecting it to your nbn® connection terminal or wall plug.

ASUS devices have been known to lock up the port, so if you have any trouble getting an internet connection, you can perform a port reset on your MyAussie app or simply call our customer service team on 1300 880 905.
