Setting up your D-Link EXO 882

Network and Tech Support

Your D-Link EXO 882 is purpose-built to offer the full potential of fibre. Check out the below guide on how to get it all set up.

Please note that the D-Link EXO 882 doesn't work on VDSL connections, however, it could be used as an AP.

Before you begin

  • You should have received a text message from MyRepublic informing you when you'll be connected.
  • If a technician is required (usually when it's a new fibre install) please have the router available for them.
  • If your services are just being activated (when you already have fibre installed) use this guide to get you connected.

Getting connected: Internet



  1. Plug one end of the power pack/power cable into an electrical outlet, and the other end into the D-Link’s power port.
  2. Connect one end of the supplied black Ethernet cable to the Yellow INTERNET port on the back of the D-Link and the other end to Port 1 on the ONT installed by your technician.
  3. Once everything is connected, power on the D-Link EXO 882 by pressing the black button on the back of the router.

Getting connected: Phone

On MyRepublic Fibre, your home phone connects to the Fibre ONT (Optical Network Terminal). In some cases, your phone may work through your existing wall jacks. Please visit this guide for more information.

Getting connected: Devices

  • Connect any Ethernet devices to the yellow ports on the back of the D-Link EXO 882

  • Connect any wireless devices to the D-Link EXO 882 using the password provided on the WiFi card.
If you lose this, the password is printed on the bottom of the router. If you'd like to customise your WiFi username or password, check out our guide on this here
