Using an all-in-one device (combined printer / scanner / fax) with the FRITZ!Box

You can also connect an all-in-one device (also called multi-function devices or multi-function 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.

  • Connect the all-in-one device to the FRITZ!Box by means of a network cable or wireless LAN and configure it as a network printer,
    • or, if the all-in-one device only has a USB port:
      1. Use a USB cable to connect the all-in-one device to the FRITZ!Box.
      2. Use the FRITZ!Box USB remote connection software to set up the all-in-one device as a printer and then as a scanner.
