  3. Click on the "Network Settings" tab.
  4. In the "Time Synchronization" section, enter the NTP time server on the Internet that the FRITZ!Box should synchronize its time with. If the section is not displayed, enable the Advanced View first.

    Note:Normally it is not necessary to change the preconfigured NTP time server 0.europe.pool.ntp.org. You can find a list of alternative NTP time servers here.

  2. Click "Region and Language" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click on the "Time Zone" tab.

  6. If you are using the FRITZ!Box in a country that has daylight savings, enable the option "Enable daylight savings time".
  7. Click "Apply" to save the settings.
