TPG 4-Port Modem
The Netcomm NB6 Plus 4 is a 4-port ADSL2+ compatible modem/router that allows TPG broadband subscribers to connect up to four computers at once to the internet. The Netcomm NB6Plus 4 is ADSL2+ compatible and can allow download speeds up to 24,000kbps to let you take advantage of a high speed TPG ADSL2+ or Naked DSLs ervice. It will also work on an ADSL service and will mean you are ready to upgrade to an ADSL2+ service when it comes available in your area without having to purchase a new modem.
If you purchase the NetcommNB6Plus 4 directly from TPG it will be couriered to your door and TPG will automatically set it up with your username and password. This means as soon as your modem arrives you are ready to plug it in and start browsing the internet once the ADSL, ADSL2+ or Naked DSL service has been successfully installed on your home line. If you purchase a modem elsewhere you will only receive limited technical support from TPG as TPG customer service will only provide full technical support to the range of modems that they sell.
Once you have installed a line filter on every device in your home that runs along the phone line you will need to plug in the power for your modem. Once the modem is on you can connect a telephone cable in the DSL slot on the back of the modem. You will then need to run Ethernet cables from the LAN slots on the back of the modem to connect the other computers you want to have access to your broadband internet.
While the modem will come pre set-up by TPG if you need to re-enter your username or password into the modem you will need to access the modem interface. This is not as hard as it may sound.
All you need to do is open a web browser and in the address bar type: http://192.168.1.1. This will take you to the modem interface. If prompted for a password use ‘admin’ for both. On the modem interface screen you will need to click ‘quick start’ and this will bring up the ‘connect to the internet page.’ On this page you should enter your username and password as supplied to you by TPG . If you are unsure of your username and password you will need to contact TPG technical support.
Once the username and password is correct click ‘connect’ and you should notice a solid green ADSL light on the front of the modem. This means the modem has successfully connected to the internet and is ready to use.
