Setting up FRITZ!Box for use with a Fiber line

The FRITZ!Box is optimally prepared for use with Fiber Nederland. Simply connect the FRITZ!Box to the fiber optic modem and select Fiber as the internet service provider in the FRITZ!Box. The complete FRITZ!Box range of functions for internet and multimedia is then available to all of the devices in your home network without restriction.

Important:Currently, we do not have any information about how to use Fiber's telephony function with the FRITZ!Box. As soon as we find out, we will update this guide.

1 Connecting the FRITZ!Box

  1. Insert one end of a network cable into the "WAN" port on the FRITZ!Box. Use the network cable supplied with the FRITZ!Box, for example.
  2. Insert the other end of the network cable into the LAN port on the fiber optic modem (ONT, Optical Network Termination).

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 "Fiber.nl" from the drop-down list "Internet connection via" and enable the correct connection type.
  5. Click "Apply" to save the settings.
  6. Now the FRITZ!Box checks whether the internet connection can be established. Configuration is completed as soon as the message "The internet connection check was successful" is displayed.

    Important:If the internet connection check fails, your internet access may not have been activated yet. In this case, contact Fiber.
