FRITZ!Box 4020 Service

Setting up the FRITZ!Box for use with a DSL modem

With an ADSL or VDSL modem you can use the FRITZ!Box on any DSL line. Since the FRITZ!Box establishes and controls its own internet access via the modem, all FRITZ!Box functions (such as the firewall, parental controls, MyFRITZ!) are also available without restriction in this operating mode.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.

1 Connecting the FRITZ!Box with a DSL modem

  1. Use a network cable (for example the white network cable included with delivery) to connect the "WAN" port on the FRITZ!Box to the LAN port on the DSL modem.

2 Configuring the internet connection in the FRITZ!Box

  1. Open the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Enter the FRITZ!Box password on the bottom of the device and click "Log In".
  3. Click "Internet" and then "Account Information".
  4. Select "DSL or fiber optic modem" from the drop-down list "Internet connection via".
  5. If your internet service provider is displayed in the drop-down list, select your provider and enter the account information you received from your internet service provider in the corresponding fields.
    • If your internet service provider is not displayed:
      1. Select "Other internet service provider".
      2. Enter the internet account information you received from your internet service provider in the relevant fields. If account information is not required, enable the option "No".
      3. Enter the speeds of your internet connection in the "Downstream" and "Upstream" fields.
      4. If your internet service provider requires you to use a particular VLAN ID, click "Change connection settings", enable the option "Use VLAN for internet access", and enter the VLAN ID.
  6. Click "Apply" to save the settings.

Now the FRITZ!Box uses the account information you entered to establish the internet connection. Then you can connect your wireless devices with the FRITZ!Box.
