Configuring the FRITZ!Box for use with other FRITZ!Boxes
You can connect your FRITZ!Box to an existing FRITZ!Box and configure it so that it uses the first one's internet connection. This allows you to:
- completely integrate all of the computers, smartphones, and other devices connected to the second FRITZ!Box into your home network. You can use these devices to access the internet as well as other devices in the home network, and they can use all of the functions offered by the FRITZ!Box connected to the internet.
- also use all of the telephone numbers configured in the FRITZ!Box connected to the internet with telephones connected to the second FRITZ!Box.
You can either use a network cable or your home's electrical wiring (powerline) to establish a network connection between the FRITZ!Boxes. Which connection type is best depends on the operational environment and demands on the data transmission rate.
