This guide is suitable for FRITZ!Box 7490, 7390, 7360, and 7272 routers using the latest FRITZ!OS firmware.
What we'll cover:
If your FRITZ!Box firmware is up to date, IPv6 will be enabled by default.
Internode strongly recommends keeping your FRITZ!Box firmware up to date - see our FRITZ!OS guide for more information.
If you signed up with Internode before 18 January 2012, you may need to enable IPv6 through My Internode.

|This is the router's default password.
We recommend that you change the password for security reasons.

If the default password does not work, it has likely been changed. If you do not know the password, you will need to factory reset your FRITZ!Box before you can access the user interface.
You can reset the FRITZ!Box to factory settings by clicking Forgot your password? and then Restore Factory Settings. Please note that this will overwrite all of your settings.
Once you have reset your FRITZ!Box to factory settings, you will be redirected to the setup wizard.

Once you have set up your IPv6 connection as above, you can test your connection on the Internode IPv6 website. If you are successful, it will display your IPv6 address in green, as shown below:

Congratulations! You have successfully configured IPv6 on your FRITZ!Box router.
