D-Link Taipan - AC3200 Ultra Wi-Fi Modem/Router Set Up Guide

Here’s how to set up your D-Link Taipan AC3200 Modem/Router for NBN or Fixed Wireless on the Pentanet network. Let’s go!

Before you start, you’ll need the following details.

  • PPPoE Username and Password - this is your Pentanet authentication username and password. You can find it in your customer welcome email or in the customer portal.
  • Service Type - Pentanet Fixed Wireless or NBN (including your technology type).

On your computer/laptop, connect to the Wi-Fi - you can find the default SSID username and password on a sticker on the back/side of the modem. If you’ve used the TAIPAN before and have changed the login details, use those.

    • Enable Automatic DHCP-PD in LAN: Enable

  • Click Save, and test that IPv6 is working correctly by visiting https://ipv6test.google.com/

And that’s it!

You can now enjoy your superfast Pentanet internet connection to stream, browse, and game online.

Note: your router has two Wi-Fi networks which broadcast on different frequencies - 2.4GHz and 5GHz. 5GHz can reach faster speeds, but doesn’t penetrate walls well. 2.4GHz travels farther, but often won’t be as fast. We recommend using the 5GHz network when you’re nearby the unit, or the 2.4GHz if you’re in a different room or further away.
