If you did not receive a modem from your ISP, please contact your modems supplier for advanced setup.
The only ISP specific information you should require is the following:
Password: this is the password you selected when setting up your ADSL/Broadband account
Primary DNS Server: May be below or consult with ISP
Secondary DNS Server: May be below or consult with ISP
You can try using Open DNS - 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52
The generic ADSL settings for New Zealand are as follows:
VPI should be 0
VCI should be 100
The Protocol needs to be PPPoA (PPP over ATM RFC 2364) with VC multiplexed encapsulation (VC-MUX)
Modulation or Operating mode can be: G.992.1 G.DMT or ANSI T1.413 iss 2, but not G.Lite or G.992.2
Your IP address should be dynamically determined unless your using a static IP which you would know what to do with anyway.
Note some ISP's will only support to a limited extent and only a certain amount of modems and routers.
Telecom use Thomson's and older D-Link's possibly still supported, Slingshot are Dynalink's, Vodafone is Huawei, there 3G sticks, ex-offered telecom D-links, Orcon may also help with Thomson's but this could differ. Woosh are very limited to Netgear if wireless or a basic Netcomm NB series if ADSL.
Most of ISP's will support the model if supported, offered by them only

You should probably clarify that this info only pertains to ADSL connections. For Cable connections in Wellington, Kapiti and Christchuch, you will need the IP details that TelstraClear should have supplied you with or you can find out from their helpdesk.

Thanks mushion22 but I think if you look at 1) Most people would know if there on cable and 2)...

Hay, is it possible to setup a router for the first time (new account) through a different ISP?
For example I am setting up a friends router and
there ISP is slingshot, can I set up the router
through my ISP XTRA or IHUG?

Hey thanks for this! I'm considering signing up on the 'Naked DSL' plan on Slingshot. I was worried about not knowing how to configure the modem and didn't feel like paying $50 for someone to come over and do it for me.
This will help HEAPS in the future! I'll be returning here once I've got everything up and running. :D

A small note on iHug usernames - they are in the format firstname.lastname@example.org - don't forget the 'adsl' bit of they won't work.
