Using an internet radio receiver in the FRITZ!Box home network

If your internet radio (for example a wireless radio, stereo system) is equipped with a network port or Wi-Fi, you can easily connect it to the FRITZ!Box home network. The internet radio can then access the internet and, depending on the model, play music from streaming services, the FRITZ!Box media server, or other media servers in the home network.

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

1 Configuring the FRITZ!Box

In the factory settings, the FRITZ!Box automatically assigns the correct IP settings to all devices via DHCP. If you disabled the FRITZ!Box's DHCP server, re-enable it:

  1. Click "Home Network" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Network" in the "Home Network" menu.
  3. Click on the "Network Settings" tab.
  4. Click "Additional Settings" in the section "LAN Settings" to display all of the settings.
  5. Click the "IPv4 Settings" button.
  6. Enable the DHCP server and define the range from which the FRITZ!Box assigns IP addresses.

    Note:The FRITZ!Box has the IP address (subnet mask and assigns IP addresses from xxx.20 to xxx.200 in the factory settings.

  7. Click "OK" to save the settings.

2 Configuring internet radio

Make sure that the internet radio obtains its IP settings from the FRITZ!Box:

  1. Configure the internet radio to automatically obtain IP settings via DHCP (this is the default setting for most internet radios). Refer to the manufacturer for information on how to set it up, for example consult the manual.

3 Connecting an internet radio to a FRITZ!Box

  1. Either use Wi-Fi or a network cable to connect the internet radio to the FRITZ!Box.

Now the internet radio is connected to the internet through the FRITZ!Box and can play music from the FRITZ!Box media server and other media servers in the home network (for example Kodi, Plex).

Note:Refer to the manufacturer for further information on how to set up the internet radio.
