Connect the power supply unit to the Power socket on your FRITZ!Box
Plug the other end into an AC power outlet

 

Insert the network cable into the LAN1 port on your FRITZ!Box
Insert the free end of the cable into the LAN port of your Fiber NT on which the line was activated.

 

By default, the service is delivered on the port 1-1 of the Fiber NT, though, if there was already a fiber connection active in your living unit, we will activate the line on the next port, 1-2. You can find the correct port number on the order confirmation.

 

 

Insert the network cable into the LAN socket of the computer
Insert the free end of the cable into one of the remaining LAN sockets (LAN 2 — LAN 4) on the FRITZ!Box.
Configuration time: 15-20 minutes.
 

Step 1 — Opening the web interface

 

Open your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox,…) and go to the web interface of your FRITZ!Box. By default, it should be reachable on http://fritz.box or http://192.168.178.1.

You will be redirected to the wizard for the first basic configuration. Select English or another language if preferred.

Click on Next to continue.

Step 2 — Logging in

 

The language of the web interface has now changed to the language of your choice. First of all, you need to enter the password of your FRITZ!Box. You can find it on the white sticker on the underside of the device:

Step 3 — Regional setting

 

Next you will see the screen asking to choose the regional setting.

Select Belgium in a drop-down menu and click on Apply.

Step 4 — Selecting the annex

 

The FRITZ!Box will ask you to select the Annex setting.

The Annex is a DSL standard and therefore is not relevant to the fiber configuration. Select whichever you prefer (A or B) and click on Next.

Step 5 — Reboot

 

The FRITZ!Box will now automatically reboot. It may take up to 2-3 minutes.

Step 6 — Welcome to the FRITZ!Box

 

At this step, the FRITZ!Box will suggest to enable Diagnostics and maintenance option, which means that the device will be sending technical diagnostics data to AVM. Feel free to enable or disable the setting.

Step 7 — Wizard

 

The next screen is the Welcome screen. Click on Next to start the wizard.

If you purchased your FRITZ!Box not from edpnet, the automatic configuration is unfortunately not possible. In such a case, click on Cancel and proceed with manual configuration (see Step 11). Don't worry, it won't take more than a few minutes!

Step 8 — Account Information

 

In the wizard, you need to choose your Internet Service Provider. Choose EDPnet in a drop-down list and select EDPnet Fiber option. Click on Next.

Step 9 — Confirm settings

 

If you have chosen EDPnet as your ISP, all the settings will be filled in automatically for your connection. Click on Next.

Step 10 — Checking internet connection

 

Your device will now try to connect.
 
If there is a green line, it means the configuration has been finished successfully. Press Next.
 
If there is a red line, check if your modem/router is connected to the DSL-line and if it gained synchronization (the Power/DSL LED should not be blinking).
If you are not sure if your device is receiving a DSL signal, please, contact our customer service.

Step 11 — Manual configuration

 

These steps can be followed if your internet connection is still not working after you followed the above-mentioned steps of automatic configuration. This part of the guide continues the steps of automatic configuration.

Click on Internet in the main menu and then select Account Information in a drop-down list. Choose EDPnet in the drop-down list of Internet Service Provider. The only thing you have to fill in at this step is your connection credentials (username and password) which you received from edpnet. Then click on Apply.

 

No worries! Configuring your FRITZ!Box is easy—even if you don’t have any laptop or PC. Just use your phone or tablet to access the modem web interface and set up internet connection.

 

Step 1 — Connecting to the modem

 

First you need to enable Wi-Fi on your FRITZ!Box. Press the WLAN button and hold it down until the WLAN LED starts flashing:

Connect your phone or tablet to the wireless network you just enabled. It’s called FRITZ!Box 7530.

The password by default is printed on a label you may find on the back of the modem:

 

Step 2 — Opening the web interface

 

Once you have connected to the modem wireless network, open your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox,…) and go to the web interface of your FRITZ!Box. By default, it should be reachable on http://fritz.box or http://192.168.178.1.

You will be redirected to the wizard for the first basic configuration. Select English or another language if preferred.

Click on Next to continue.

Step 3 — Logging in

 

The language of the web interface has now changed to the language of your choice: in our case to English.
