Westnet Broadband Settings

Setup guides for Westnet modems are available here.

You can check which type of broadband you have by checking your address on our website.

If you encounter a setting that isn't listed here (e.g. MTU) in your modem's Setup Wizard/Quick Setup, simply leave it as the default.

Please note: If you use a third party modem, your included phone service (and any calls) will not be available.
