FRITZ!Box is a series of residential gateway devices produced by the German company AVM GmbH. In 2010 it was estimated the series had a market share of 68% of the digital subscriber line (DSL) consumer equipment in Germany.[1]

Functionality[edit]

There are several FRITZ!Box models available, but the most popular are the ones that combine DSL and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) VoIP. Functionality includes:

  • a built-in ADSL modem (most models), or an ADSL/VDSL modem (73xx series), or a cable modem (63xx series), or an LTE modem (68xx series).
  • a built-in LAN-WAN router.
  • most models also have a built-in network switch. Older models support 10/100 Mbit/s Ethernet while the newer models additionally support Gbit (1000 Mbit/s) Ethernet.
  • models with "WLAN" in their product designations can also serve as a wireless access point.
    • all 'WLAN' models support 2.4 GHz band IEEE 802.11b (11 Mbit/s) connections. Additionally, all 'WLAN' models since 2003 also support the 2.4 GHz 802.11g (54 Mbit/s) standard.
    • several newer models also support the 5 GHz IEEE 802.11a (54 Mbit/s) and 2.4 GHz/5 GHz IEEE 802.11n (54 Mbit/s—300 Mbit/s) standards. The x270 (7270, 3270) models can be configured for either 2.4 GHz b/g/n or 5 GHz a/n, while the x390 (7390, 3390) models have two transceivers and so can be configured to handle both bands simultaneously.
  • models with "Fon" in their product designations also support telephones
    • they have a PABX for two ISDN and/or analog phones. Several newer models (FRITZ!Box 7270, 7340, 7390, 6360, 6840) also have a DECT base station for cordless phones. These models also have an integrated digital answering machine.
    • they support Internet telephony (Voice over IP, 'VoIP') connections via SIP. A built-in analog telephony adapter emulates normal ISDN/phone connections for the attached phones.
  • most models since 2006 also have a USB port to connect a harddrive, memorystick or printer for local file or printer sharing. The USB port may also be used to connect a second modem, e.g. for UMTS/3GSM/HSPA. Also most models with a current firmware include a DLNA/UPnP compliant server.

Undocumented features[edit]

Versions[edit]

Most FRITZ!Box devices with integrated DSL modem come in three versions:

  • Version for the German market, with German language interface
  • Version for Austria and Switzerland with German language interface
  • International version with English-language interface

While the latter two versions support both the most common ADSL Annex A and ADSL Annex B, the German version offers hardware support for Annex B with additional support for Annex J in newer models. There have been attempts to enable Annex A on the German version hardware using software hacks; however, hacked routers are reported not to offer stability on lines with weaker signal (i.e., in case of longer distances from DSLAM).
