AmpliFi HD and Amplifi Instant Setup Guide

Configuring your AmpliFi router for use with Pentanet is quick and easy, here’s how:

Before you begin:

You’ll need to know your PPPoE username and PPPoE password, which can be found in the welcome email we sent you.

Not able to locate your welcome email? No worries – you can also find these details under settings in the “Services” tab in the customer portal (https://my.pentanet.com.au)

To manage most settings in your Amplifi, you’ll need to install the AmpliFi app on your mobile device. If you haven’t already done so, tap the link below to install the app for your device:
