FRITZ!Box 7330 Service

Opening the FRITZ!Box user interface in "IP Client" or "wireless repeater" mode when the IP address is unknown

If you use the FRITZ!Box as an "IP client" or "wireless repeater", you can no longer enter fritz.box to access the user interface. Instead, you can only use the IP address manually assigned to the FRITZ!Box.

If you have forgotten the IP address that was manually assigned to your FRITZ!Box, you can still open the FRITZ!Box user interface.

Important:Some of the settings described here are only displayed if the advanced view is enabled in the user interface. The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS

1 Opening the FRITZ!Box user interface

If you are using an additional FRITZ!Box as a wireless access point or router and FRITZ!OS 5.20 or later is installed on it, then you can access the user interface as follows:

  1. Open the user interface of the FRITZ!Box that you are using as the wireless access point or router.
  2. Click "Home Network" and then "Network".
