Setting up FRITZ!Box for use with an Orange line

The FRITZ!Box is already configured for use with a cable connection from Orange in the factory settings. Simply connect the FRITZ!Box to the cable modem from Orange. The complete FRITZ!Box range of functions for internet and television (Digitale TV) is then available to all of the devices in your home network without restriction.

If you changed the settings of the FRITZ!Box, configure the FRITZ!Box as described in this guide.

Important:Currently, we do not have any information about whether the FRITZ!Box can make calls over Orange and if so, how to configure the telephone numbers in the FRITZ!Box. As soon as we have any new information, we will update this guide.
