FRITZ!Box 6490 Cable Service - Knowledge Base
If you purchased your FRITZ! products from a retailer, you can use the "Online Update" function to quickly and easily install the latest FRITZ!OS yourself. If you enable the option "Notify me about new versions of FRITZ!OS and install new versions automatically" under "System > Update > Auto-Update" in the user interface, then future updates will be installed automatically.
If you received your FRITZ!Box from your cable provider, then the cable provider installs new versions automatically.
- Click "System" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
- Click "Update" in the "System" menu.
Important:If the "Update" menu is not available, then your FRITZ!Box was provided by your cable provider. The cable provider automatically installs new FRITZ!OS for these devices. You therefore cannot install an update using the FRITZ!Box user interface, nor is it necessary. Your provider can give you information on the new FRITZ!OS version and possible dates.
- Click the "Find New FRITZ!OS" button.
- Click the "Start Update Now" button.
