Convert FRITZ!Box 7360 to Managed Switch (or even Access Point) having it’s own IP address: Setting up the FRITZ!Box as an IP client – via AVM International

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/23

This was a tad difficult to find as I searched for “Convert Fritz!Box to Switch” instead of “Convert Fritz!Box to Access Point”.

Since I had an old Fritz!Box 7360 lying around (from my ADSL era) and wanted to extend the cabled LAN for my brothers Fritz!Box 7490 with some low-bandwidth devices (max 100 megabit/second) I searched for Switch. My bad.

Oh I had to factory reset it as well as I forgot the management credentials. The AVM help on this is cumbersome: Loading the FRITZ!Box factory settings | FRITZ!Box 7360 | AVM International but the xs4all help includes a web-reset procedure as part of Internet: Reset procedures van mijn FRITZ!Box 7360 which translates to:

  1. Switch off the Fritz!Box (as this procedure needs to be done within 10 minutes of switching it on)
  2. Connect LAN2 to your computer
  3. Switch on the Fritz!Box
  4. Wait for a DHCP IP or (if you know the IP addresses) configure IP manually
  5. Go to the web-interface URL
  6. Indicate you forgot your password:

    Forgot your password?

    Forgot your password?

  7. Indicate you want a factory reset:

    Restore Factory Settings

    Restore Factory Settings

Anyway: with the above steps it becomes a Managed Switch (and if you don’t disable WiFi: Access Point too) that uses the primary internet connection as DHCP server (so it gets an IP address itself as well which means you can manage it).

configure SourceTree to perform git rebase by default

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/23

There is a great description for Windows users at: the urban canuk, eh: Configure SourceTree to Rebase by default

Note that this is a global setting for git (which you can override each time you do a pull). So there is no way to differentiate this by repository.

The screenshots for Mac OS X users to configure SourceTree to perform git rebase by default are these:
