For best reliability and security, please always make sure that your AVM Fritz!Box is running the most recent firmware version available.
You'll need your SIP-ID and SIP password (not your web login password) to set up the Fritz!Box for sipgate services.
To access the device management, please navigate to fritz.box from a computer connected to the Fritz!Box.
If your device does not support using the URL please check AVM's device manual. It will list a default IP address to use for management access.
Please open the section Telephony -> Telephone Numbers and click on the New Telephone Number button.
In the drop-down provider list please choose Other Provider and enter the following details:
User name: Your SIP-ID
Password: Your SIP Password
Proxy Server: sipgate.co.uk
Telephone Number for Registration: 44[YourAreaCode][YourSipgatePhoneNumber] (Example: 442031234567)
Internet Telephone Number: 0[YourAreaCode][YourSipgatePhoneNumber] (Example: 02031234567)
If the option Relay outgoing emergency calls without prefixes is displayed please enable it.
Some internet service providers provide a second, separate internet connection for telephony. This connection can only be used with the internet service provider's phone numbers. If available, please enable the option Always register via an Internet connection so that your sipgate calls use the same connection used for regular internet traffic.
Please click Next and confirm your changes. Your Fritz!Box will now try to connect with sipgate:
In the Fritz!Box Telephony Devices menu you can choose which phone handsets will be used with your sipgate account.

If you're experiencing issues with registering online:
- Open Telephony -> Telephone Numbers and click the button (Edit) next to your sipgate account.
- If the registration failure reason is "Internet telephony registration failed [number] Reason for error: [401, 402, 403]" check that your SIP-ID, SIP password and the server address sipgate.co.uk are entered correctly.
- If the field STUN server is shown under your account information, please enter the sipgate STUN Server address: stun.sipgate.net. This setting should be disabled again if it doesn't help resolve the issue.

If you're experiencing issues with making outbound calls:
- Please open Telephony -> Telephone Numbers -> Line Settings.
- Select Other country from the drop-down list.
