Cannot access the internet over the FRITZ!Box's guest access

Although devices can register with the FRITZ!Box's guest access, they cannot access the internet over the guest access.

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

1 Opening an HTTPS page in the web browser

If the option "Permit login with guest access/hotspot only after consent to terms of use" is enabled, users must agree to the terms of use before being allowed to access the internet. However, the captive portal with terms of use is only displayed if an HTTPS page is opened:

  1. Call up an HTTPS page, for example, in your web browser. Now the FRITZ!Box displays the captive portal for guest access.
  2. Agree to the terms of use of the guest access.
