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

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 Wifi router, so you can use it without an additional device on nbn™ FTTN and FTTB connections.

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