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.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.

1 Connecting the FRITZ!Box

  1. Use a network cable to connect the "LAN 1" port on the FRITZ!Box to the LAN port on the fiber optic modem (ONT), for example use the network cable included with delivery.

2 Configuring the internet connection in the FRITZ!Box

  1. Click "Wizards" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. If the FRITZ!Box is set to factory settings, set a password for accessing the user interface and click "OK" and then "Next".

  4. Select "Fiber.nl" from the drop-down list and enable the correct connection type.
  5. Click "Next" and follow the wizard's instructions.

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.
