Setting up FRITZ!Box for use with a Scarlet line

To use the FRITZ!Box with a Scarlet line, simply connect it to the DSL line and enter your personal account information in the FRITZ!Box user interface. 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:According to our information, Scarlet currently only supports telephony with routers that they provide themselves. If we find out that telephone numbers from Scarlet can be configured in the FRITZ!Box, we will update this guide.

Requirements / Restrictions

  • A FRITZ!Box certified for the Belgian VDSL network must be used with DSL lines (for example, FRITZ!Box 7590 and FRITZ!Box 7530 are certified, see Which modems can I use).

1 Having your account information ready

  1. Have your personal account information for internet access that you received from Scarlet ready.

    Note:Scarlet sent you the account information via email after you concluded the contract with them. If you did not receive your account information, contact Scarlet.

2 Connecting the FRITZ!Box

  1. Insert the DSL cable into the "DSL" socket on the FRITZ!Box and into the DSL line.

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

  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.
