Parental controls on Aussie Broadband

It’s easy with Safe Surfer to setup parental controls on Aussie Broadband. Along with protecting your privacy, we also use our own behind-the-scenes technology to block porn and other harmful online content. This guide will efficiently walk you through how to setup protection.

Step 1: Configure DNS

Enter the address into the top search bar of a web browser (such as Google Chrome or Firefox).

Type admin into the username box. Check the bottom of your Netcomm router for a sticker containing the login password—this is different to the Wi-Fi password.

Click into the DHCP menu:

For “Primary DNS server”, type into the text box.
For “Secondary DNS server”, type into the text box.

Step 2: Click the Advanced Setup menu -> LAN

Verify the protection installation by visiting inside a web browser. This is a safe website for testing to see if pornographic websites are being blocked. If it's not blocked, review the previous steps.
