Configuring a network adapter to access the user interface with "emergency IP address"

In some operating modes, you can only open the user interface by entering the IP address that was manually assigned to the FRITZ!Box instead of fritz.box. If you have forgotten the IP address, you can open the user interface by entering the "emergency IP address" 169.254.1.1.

If the user interface does not open when you enter the "emergency IP address", you must first change the IP settings of the network adapter connected to the FRITZ!Box manually.
