DNS change: FRITZ!Box

Here we explain how you can change the DNS server of your FRITZ!Box.

What is a DNS server? – A DNS server is responsible for resolving domain addresses.

Do you recommend changing the DNS server? – We recommend changing the DNS servers of your device, as this allows you to bypass the manipulation of your Internet provider, who may have set up possible blockages.

Step 1: Please open the FRITZ!Box interface in an Internet browser by accessing your device via the following address http://fritz.box/ . You will also need your FRITZ!Box password. After entering, we ask you to go to "Login".
