How to access the user interface of a FRITZ!Box

The web interface of the FRITZ!Box plays a central role in managing your Internet access, telephony and local network. It also offers numerous functions such as call lists, voicemail, SmartHome, media server and much more.

Basically, you can reach the web interface from any device with an Internet browser. However, it is important that this device is in the same network and that a connection to the FRITZ!Box has been established.

If no changes have been made, you will usually find all the information relevant for the first login on the underside of the FRITZ!Box. If you purchased the device via easybell, all the access data will also be enclosed on a separate note.

Connect to the user interface

  1. Make sure that your device has a connection to the FRITZ!Box.
  2. Start an Internet browser on this device.
  3. In the address bar, please enter http://fritz.box and confirm.
  4. You will then be taken to the login page of the FRITZ!Box.
    If this does not work, please enter the network address of the router as an alternative. By default, this is http://192.168.178.1.
    Alternatively, you can use the "emergency IP", which is the same for every FRITZ!Box: http://169.254.1.1.
  5. Now please enter the password for the user interface.

You don't know the password?

 

If you did not assign the password yourself, please look for a note to that effect on the bottom of the router or in the package.

It may also happen that you are asked to set a password yourself the first time you log on. Regardless, we strongly recommend that you use your own secure password to protect your router from unauthorised access.

If you are unable to find out the password, it may be necessary to reset the FRITZ!Box to factory settings.

Attention!This will delete all settings such as an Internet access that has already been set up. The factory reset should therefore always be the last choice.
