Hello, I just purchased a GL-MT3000 for the purpose of bringing it with me while traveling so I can enable WireGuard VPN on the device to be connected to my Home IP address while abroad.
My router at home is a FRITZ!Box 7530 AX and has the latest firmware with WireGuard VPN. I would like to understand how I can achieve my goal here since everything I am doing is not working properly.
My understanding is the following:
- Go to my FRITZ!Box user interface and go through the WireGuard VPN setup. I have two options in the wizard: Connect a single device( Set up a WireGuard connection to this FRITZ!Box for a smartphone, tablet or an individual computer) or Connect networks or establish special connections (Set up a WireGuard connection between two FRITZ!Box networks, this FRITZ!Box and a VPN provider, this FRITZ!Box and a WireGuard® server or other special WireGuard connections.)
- I click on “Connect a single device” since I am assuming the single device is the Travel Router
- I then have two options, a QR code or Download Settings. The QR code worked seamlessly through my WireGuard app on my phone but I do not have this option with the GL-MT3000 so I choose download settings
- I then download the configuration file with the following information. I have replaced what I understand as the sensitive information with X
PrivateKey = XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Address = 192.xxx.xxx.xxx/xx
DNS = 192.xxx.xxx.x
DNS = fritz.box
PublicKey = XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
PresharedKey = XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
AllowedIPs = 192.xxx.xxx.x/xx,x.x.x.x/x
Endpoint = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.myfritz.net:xxxxx
PersistentKeepalive = xx
- I then go to the WireGuard Client section of my GL-MT3000 UI and upload the configuration file I downloaded
- I go to the VPN Dashboard in my GL-MT3000 and click on Enable
- I receive the following error message "Error: inet6 prefix is expected rather than “”.
I’m not very technically advanced so I am still in the learning process and any help would be greatly appreciated. How can I solve this issue? Thank you.

What do they mean when they say, “Set the DHCP areas in both networks (A and B) so that they do not overlap. I chose 192.168.8.X for network A and 192.168.10.X for network B.”
