I'm trying to setup an old Fritzbox 7490 as an access point, however i can't access the fritzbox user interface page.


Trying to connect to & both fail.


Attempting to connect to the emergency IP - as listed here times out.


Using the recovery tool from here, auto aborts as it finds a custom ISP config file.


I've tried the above on two different consumpters, to no avail.




Has anyone else run into these issues? or have any other ideas i can try?

How are you trying to connect to the FB?
PC connected via eth to LAN2 on the FB? Set a static IP on the PC to be for example. Make sure you can ping


If you can then interface should load. If you cannot ping it then the FB has another IP or you dont have connectivity setup correctly. Make sure you have a PC connected directly to the FB to make things easier.

Good to hear. LAN1 is set by default as effectively WAN on the FB’s.
