Set up Budii Lite for NBN FTTN or FTTB

This article will show you how to set up a Budii Lite® modem for an NBN™ Fibre to the Building (FTTB) or Fibre to the Node (FTTN) internet.

Please note: Budii Lite is VDSL2-ready so it can be used for some NBN™ FTTB/N broadband connections, however the modem is no longer compatible with iiNet NBN™ FTTB/N connections as of February 2018. Services connected before this date will remain compatible until further notice.

You won't find these instructions in Budii Lite's Quick Setup Guide as the FTTB and FTTN technologies were released after the guide was created, and Budii Lite is no longer sold. For the reason, we've created this article to help any existing customers with a Budii Lite modem who are getting FTTB/N broadband at their address.

Please note: Budii Lite must be running the latest version of its firmware to support NBN™ FTTB/N broadband.


  1. Find the network wall socket in your home. They're most commonly found in the main living room space or bedrooms, but sometimes they're in the kitchen area. It should look something like the photo below.
    Note: If If your home has the older 600-series wall sockets (typically the plug is a yellow square with 3 prongs), you’ll need to purchase an adapter that allows you to plug in a modern RJ11 phone cable. These adapters can be bought at all good electronics and computer stores.

  2. You'll also need an available electric outlet to give your modem power. If you need to use a double-adapter, power board or extension cord this should be okay, but if your modem ever seems to have power issues the first thing you should try is plugging the power supply cable directly into the electrical outlet on the wall.
  3. Take the power supply cable and use it to connect the power port to an electrical outlet. You may turn the modem on now or wait until you've finished plugging in the other cables.

  4. Take your RJ11 phone cable (the thinner, white/grey cable) and plug it into the grey Internet port.

  5. Plug the other end of the RJ11 phone cable directly into the telephony wall socket. Do not use a line filter.
  6. If you have a computer nearby that you'd like to connect via Ethernet, take your Ethernet cable and plug one end into any one of the four black LAN ports. Plug the other end of the cable into the computer's Network port.

  7. Other devices can be connected via WiFi. Budii Lite's default WiFi network will begin broadcasting as soon as it's turned on and has finished booting up. Even if the modem isn't connected to the internet, the WiFi can be used as a local connection between the modem and a computer/WiFi device to access the modem settings.

    The sticker on the back of your modem will have the default WiFi network name (labelled "SSID") and default WiFi password (labelled "WPA") which you can use to identify and connect to the WiFi.

  8. Your setup should look something like the example below.

  9. Let the modem sit for 10-15 minutes. In most cases, Budii Lite will retrieve your connection settings and set up automatically. Try viewing a website - if it works, you've finished setting up.

    If can't view a website, don't worry. Continue to the next step to enter the settings manually.

  10. On a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone that's connected to Budii Lite via Ethernet cable (recommended) or WiFi, open your web browser and go to your
  11. Log in with the default password admin.  
  12. Select 5. Advanced Settings from the top menu bar and then click E. Internet setup & ADSL standard in the left-hand column.
  13. Select One in the list of internet configurations.

    Protocol: MAC Encapsulated Routing
