NodeMobile Data Configuration for FRITZ!Box Routers
This guide is suitable for FRITZ!Box 7490, 7390, 7360, and 7272 routers using the latest FRITZ!OS firmware. You will also need a suitable NodeMobile Data USB modem to follow this guide.
What we'll cover:
- logging into your router
- setting up NodeMobile Data
- Make sure that your computer is connected to the FRITZ!Box - either with an Ethernet cable, or over a wireless network.
- Open your preferred web browser, for example: Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox.
- Enter the following number into the address bar and then hit Enter on your keyboard:
- 192.168.178.1 (this number is called an IP Address).

- The router will ask you for the administrative password. If you purchased your FRITZ!Box from Internode, your router has been pre-configured and the default password will be as follows:
|admin (FRITZ!OS 7.0 and earlier)
admin123 (FRITZ!OS 7.01 and later)
|This is the router's default password.
We recommend that you change the password for security reasons.
- Once you have entered the password, click Log In.

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.
- Plug your NodeMobile Data USB modem into the USB port on the back of your FRITZ!Box.
- Click Internet in the menu to the left of the screen. New options will appear underneath.
- Click Mobile Communications to view the mobile broadband settings.
If Mobile Communications does not appear in the FRITZ!Box menu, check that your NodeMobile Data modem is properly plugged into the USB port. You may need to unplug the USB modem and plug it in again.
- At the bottom of the screen, check that Mobile communications network provider is set to Other operator.
- Type internode into the Access point field.
- Type *99# into the Access number field .
- Type ppp into both the User name and Password fields.
- Click the Apply button once all the settings have been entered.
