Pin assignment of cables and ports
The FRITZ!Box has various ports for connecting it to your DSL line and connecting your telephony devices to it. Here you will find the pin assignment of the cables included with delivery as well as of the FRITZ!Box ports so you can use your own cables, for example.
Note:The FRITZ!Box is available in several different product variants, each of which is delivered with different components. For the exact contents of the package, see the information printed on the FRITZ!Box package.

The TAE socket "FON" is assigned so that contacts 1 and 2 of TAE plugs from the telephony device must be assigned (see fig.).
