Using an all-in-one device (combined printer / scanner / fax) with the FRITZ!Box
You can also connect a multifunction device (also called all-in-one devices or multifunction printers) to the FRITZ!Box and use it for printing, scanning, and faxing. If the all-in-one device is equipped with a telephone, you can also conduct calls with it.
1 Setting up the printer / scanner
If your all-in-one device has a network port or is equipped with wireless LAN (WiFi), you can simply connect it to a LAN port or the wireless network of your FRITZ!Box and use it with all of the devices in the home network.
Even if the all-in-one device only has a USB port, you can still connect it to the FRITZ!Box. However, in this case the all-in-one device can only be used with Windows computers:
- Either use a network cable or wireless LAN to connect the all-in-one device to the FRITZ!Box and configure it as a network printer. If the device only has a USB port:
2 Setting up the fax / telephone
- Connect the all-in-one device to an analog extension on your FRITZ!Box (for example "FON 1").
- Configure the all-in-one device as a fax machine in the FRITZ!Box. If the telephone has an integrated telephone, configure it as a combination telephone/fax machine.
- If the manufacturer of the all-in-one device supplies software or an app for faxing, install and configure it according to the manufacturer's instructions on the devices you would like to fax with.
