Here’s how to set up your ASUS Router for NBN and Fixed Wireless on the Pentanet network. Let’s go!

Before you begin:

You’ll need to know your PPPoE username and password which can be found in the welcome email we sent you. Not able to locate your welcome email? That’s okay - you can also find these details under settings in the “Services” tab in the customer portal (https://my.pentanet.com.au)

(EWAN - Settings)

(Note: This section is for Fixed Wireless, OptiComm, NBN (FTTP/HFC/FTTC) only.)

  1. Plug in the power adaptor and power on the device, making sure to also connect your NBN or Fixed Wireless service to the device’s WAN port.

  2. Use the supplied ethernet cable to connect a computer to one of the yellow LAN ports. You can also connect wirelessly, however we recommend ethernet connection.

  3. Open a web browser and browse to http://192.168.1.1. You will see the below login screen and can use the below details:

    • Default username: admin
    • Default password: admin (if these credentials have previously been changed, please use the new ones. If you don’t know the password and can’t log in, you may need to factory reset the unit)
  4. Under Advanced Settings, select WAN

And that’s it!

You can now enjoy your superfast Pentanet internet connection to stream, browse, and game online.

Note: Your Asus router has two Wi-Fi networks which broadcast on different frequencies - 2.4GHz and 5GHz. 5GHz can reach faster speeds, but doesn’t penetrate walls well. 2.4GHz travels farther, but often won’t be as fast. We recommend using the 5GHz network when you’re nearby the unit, or the 2.4GHz if you’re in a different room or further away.
