Certain settings are missing from the FRITZ!Box user interface

You want to use or set up a certain function in the FRITZ!Box user interface. However, the corresponding settings, for example menu items or buttons, are not displayed although these settings are available in the user interface of a different FRITZ!Box of the same type.

Simply proceed as described below. After each measure, check whether the problem is solved.

1 Enabling the Wi-Fi network

Some Wi-Fi settings are only displayed if the Wi-Fi network is enabled:

  1. Click "Wi-Fi" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Wi-Fi Channel" ("Radio Channel") in the "Wi-Fi" ("Wireless") menu.
  3. Enable the option "Adjust Wi-Fi channel settings".
  4. Enable the Wi-Fi network for the 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency band.
  5. Click "Apply" to save the settings.

2 FRITZ!Box is configured as a Mesh Repeater / IP client

If the FRITZ!Box is configured as an "IP client" under "Internet > Account Information", all of the settings that cannot be used in this operating mode are hidden. This is the case with port sharing, dynamic DNS, IP settings, and the online meter. If the upstream router makes these functions available, you can set them up there.
