The brand-new Box by AVM is a WLAN router, a VoIP and fixed-line PBX, and an ADSL modem in one. FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN 7140 connects two analog extensions to the Internet and the fixed phone line. It permits phone calls, whether over the Internet (with Voice over IP) or over the fixed line, even while the computer is off. Encryption of WLAN connections using secure WPA standards is already activated in the factory settings. The Stick & Surf function, developed by AVM, lets computers connect to the FRITZ!Box securely, with no user configuration.
FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN 7140's USB host port paves the way for new applications. Memory sticks, printers or disk drives can be shared throughout the LAN. And like all of AVM's FRITZ!Box Fon products, FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN 7140 provides a hardware and software firewall as well as convenience features such as separate Night Service (standby) and a "Do Not Disturb" function as well as a Push Mail message service. Furthermore, the WLAN switch on the back of the device allows the user to enable and disable its WLAN access point at a push of a button.
