How Does Internet Telephony Work?
All kinds of data transmission in the Internet use the Inter-
net Protocol (IP). IP is packet-oriented. This means that the
data are broken down into data packets for transmission
and IP takes care of the transport of the individual data
packets through the Internet. Language is also transmitted
in the Internet in this manner.
In opposition to this, fixed-line telephony transmits data in
a line-oriented manner. In this case data are transmitted in
a coherent data stream.
For packet-oriented transmission in the Internet, the loss of
packets cannot be ruled out completely. Under unfavorable
conditions this can lead to speech quality in Internet tele-
phony that is inferior to that in fixed-line telephony.

Telephony Scenarios
Telephony Scenarios
If you have configured both a fixed-line number and an In-
ternet number in FRITZ!Box, you can make calls in all direc-
from the fixed-line network into the fixed-line network
from the Internet into the fixed-line network
from the Internet into the Internet
and receive calls from all directions as well.
Bandwidth Management with FRITZ!Box
FRITZ!Box is equipped with integrated bandwidth manage-
ment. This function ensures that the speech quality during
telephone calls over the Internet is not reduced by surfing
activity. FRITZ!Box adjusts all uploads and downloads to
the currently available bandwidth. Because FRITZ!Box also
places a higher priority on Internet telephony connections
over Internet data connections, unwelcome interference is
largely avoided. Just as for any other analog call, once Inter-
net telephony transmission capacity has been reached, re-
mote partners receive a busy sign.

USB Devices
USB Devices
The FRITZ!Box is equipped with a USB port (also known as a USB host
controller). Various USB devices can be connected to the host controller:
a USB mass storage device (hard drive, memory stick)
a printer
a USB hub
At the USB hub you can connect two USB mass storage devices and one
USB printer, or three USB mass storage devices.
Connecting USB Devices
Some of the USB devices, such as memory sticks or the
AVM FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick, are inserted directly into the
USB port of the USB host controller. Other devices like USB
printers are connected to the USB host controller by means
of a USB cable.

Network Access
As soon as a USB device is connected to the FRITZ!Box, all
of its functions are available in the entire network:
The files in the USB mass storage can be accessed
from the network via FTP (File Transfer Protocol), or you
can make the USB mass storage device available as a
network storage device.
USB printers are available as network printers.
USB Mass Storage Devices
USB mass storage devices include hard drives and memory
File Systems Supported
For access via FTP (File Transfer Protocol), USB mass storage
devices are supported using the file systems FAT and
Connecting USB Mass Storage Devices
A USB mass storage device can be connected either directly
to the USB port or via the USB hub (see the section “USB
Hub” on page 52).
Access Rights and Password Protection
On the FRITZ!Box user interface you can configure access
rights and a password to protect USB mass storage.

Accessing the Data in the USB Mass Storage
Select the “Settings” menu.
Select the “USB Devices / Mass Storage Device”
Configure the access rights and password protection
for the USB mass storage devices.
The access rights and password are valid for all USB mass
storage devices. It is not possible to assign a different pass-
word for each individual mass storage device.
Accessing the Data in the USB Mass Storage
USB mass storage devices connected to the FRITZ!Box di-
rectly or via a USB hub are displayed with their device name
in the “USB Devices / Mass Storage Device” menu on the
user interface.
Access via FTP (File Transfer Protocol)
All of the computers in the network can access the data in
the USB mass storage simultaneously via FTP.
Click the name of the mass storage device in the “USB De-
vices / Mass Storage Device” menu or open a web browser
and enter
in the address field. The
folder structure of the USB storage device is displayed in
the web browser.
The data in USB mass storage can be accessed via FTP us-
ing any FTP client.
Files from the USB storage device cannot be executed or
opened in a suitable program until they have been copied
to your computer or your local network.
Access to USB Network Storage
The FRITZ!Box offers you the possibility of making USB
mass storage devices available in the Windows network as
network drives (Samba). Files in the USB memory then can
be opened and processed directly on the USB mass storage
Files are supported up to a size of 2 GB.
