FRITZ!Box 6890 LTE Service

Setting up FRITZ!Box for internet access via the mobile network (LTE/UMTS)

The FRITZ!Box automatically connects to the internet when you insert your SIM card into the FRITZ!Box and enter the PIN in the FRITZ!Box user interface. All of the computers, smartphones, and other devices connected to the FRITZ!Box can then use the internet connection at the same time and have equal status.

Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.

1 Inserting the SIM card

  1. Insert the SIM card (mini-SIM, 25 x 15 x 0.76 mm) that you received from your mobile network operator into the SIM card slot with the slanted edge of the card on the left and the contacts facing downwards (see fig.).

    Important:Do not use SIM card holders with micro or nano SIM cards that have already been punched out because they can get jammed and damage the SIM slot.

  2. Push the SIM card gently into the SIM card slot until it clicks into place.

    Important:If you are using the FRITZ!Box in an area located on the edge of LTE radio coverage, the two LTE antennas included in the package may not be sufficient for a stable radio connection. In this case, use a outdoor LTE antenna.

    Important:The PIN contains only numbers and not letters or special characters. If you enter the wrong PIN three times, you must enter the SuperPIN/PUK. Refer to your mobile network operator for information on the PIN and SuperPIN/PUK.

    • Now the FRITZ!Box determines your mobile network operator and internet service provider.
  6. If your internet service provider or plan is correctly displayed, click "Next" and follow the wizard's instructions.
