AVM provides updates of the firmware for the FRITZ!Box for free downloading over the Internet. The firmware is the software stored in the FRITZ!Box that controls all of the FRITZ!Box functions. Updates contain further developments of existing FRITZ!Box functions and often also introduce new functions for your FRITZ!Box.
Finding New Firmware and Transferring It to the FRITZ!Box
- Click the "Find New Firmware" button. The FRITZ!Box checks whether a version of the new firmware is available on the AVM Update Server.
If a new version of the firmware is available to update the FRITZ!Box, the "Start Firmware Update Now" button will be displayed.
- Click the "Start Firmware Update Now" button to start the update.
- The firmware update begins and the "Info" LED on the FRITZ!Box starts flashing. The new firmware is transmitted to the FRITZ!Box.
Do not disconnect FRITZ!Box from the computer during a firmware update, and do not interrupt the power supply to the FRITZ!Box during a firmware update! If the firmware update is interrupted, your FRITZ!Box may become unusable!
The firmware update is complete when the "Info" LED stops flashing.
