How to access the FRITZ!Box user interface?

Unlimited NBN Plans from $49.90/mth - See Plans

You can easily open the user interface on all computers, smartphones, or tablets connected to the FRITZ!Box (for example over Wi-Fi) by entering the address http://fritz.box in a web browser. After you enter the FRITZ!Box password, you can configure all of the FRITZ!Box functions and view detailed information about the product, your access, and connections in the user interface.

You do not have to set up the FRITZ!Box to open the user interface. Internet access is also not required.

Please note:

 

a. You can either enter http://fritz.box or the IP address of the FRITZ!Box (http://192.168.178.1 in the factory settings) to open the user interface. In addition, you can always use the emergency IP http://169.254.1.1 to access the FRITZ!Box.

b. It is not possible to call up the user interface via the guest access.

c. Always enter the complete address http://fritz.box. If you enter the address without the "http://", for example, the web browser may start a web search instead of opening the user interface.

The user interface of your FRITZ!Box is protected with a unique password in the factory settings. The FRITZ!Box password is located on the bottom of the FRITZ!Box.

 

With the FRITZ!Box password, you can access the user interface on all of the devices connected to the FRITZ!Box. To connect a device via Wi-Fi, you need the Wi-Fi network key that is also on the bottom of the device. You can then configure settings in the user interface and change the Wi-Fi network key or default password.

 

If you changed the FRITZ!Box password and then forgot it, there is no way to find out what it is. It is therefore best to configure the "forgot password" push service right away, so you can simply have the password sent to you by email. If you forget the password and have not configured the push service, you cannot open the user interface again until you have restored the factory settings.
