You have set up your modem and now you are wondering how to personalise your connection, well you don't need to call in an IT guy or call into technical support all the information you need to get started is right here.

 

What is 192.168.0.1 ?

192.168.0.1 is your modem's IP address aka. “Your modem configuration page” 192.168.0.1 is the one that we use with the Optus supplied SAGEM F@ST 3864.  If your modem is a different make or model you will need to refer to the manual that came with that device to get your modem's IP address

 

How do I get there?

To get to your modem configuration page after you have set up your modem you just need to open a browser window on your device and in the address bar type in 192.168.0.1 and hit enter you should see something like this.

FYI: if your internet is ADSL you might see a screen asking for a username and password, it's the same ones that are included in your welcome emails or letter that you used to set-up your modem.

 

Once you are this page you'll see a menu on the left hand side with all the options available to configure your modem.

 

What can you do on this page?

There are lots of things you can do with your Optus modem, but we wanted to talk about a couple of the most important things you can do on your Optus modem.

 

Want to change your Wi-Fi password?

Wouldn’t be easier (not to mention more secure) to type in a secure, unique to you and memorable password for your Wi-Fi instead of looking for your magnet every time someone wants to connect to your Wi-Fi?

Want to change your Wi-Fi network name? 

 "Optus_234345" doesn't have the same ring as "Dave's Internet" or "Flat White Café Internet" if your internet connection is somewhere where there are multiple Wi-Fi hotspots having a unique network name will make it quicker and easier for you and your friends/ family/ customers to locate and connect to your Wi-Fi.
