The FRITZ!Box automatically establishes the Internet connection (operation as a DSL router) when you connect the FRITZ!Box to the DSL connection and enter your personal access data in the FRITZ!Box user interface. The Internet connection can then be used simultaneously and equally by all computers, smartphones and other devices connected to the FRITZ!Box.

The use of the FRITZ!Box as a DSL router is possible on a DSL connection with a fixed line, as well as on an IP-based DSL connection (All-IP), where fixed line telephony is provided via the Internet Protocol (IP) over the DSL connection.

Note: All function and setting notes in this manual refer to the current FRITZ!OS of the FRITZ!Box.
