The new “more home networking convenience” seriesIn this series, which looks at the subject of home networking, we’ll regularly be giving you practical advice on a range of possible applications. This will enable you to make the most of your FRITZ!Box and its impressive range of features, as well as increase the convenience of your home network.
Part one: Incorporating a printer into the home network with the remote USB port
In the first issue, we’ll be introducing the new remote USB port (version 02.02.01). With this practical feature, USB printers can now be better integrated into the home network and better combined with your FRITZ!Box.
As soon as the print job is complete, the printer is once again available to everyone using the home network
Up to now, a USB printer connected with the FRITZ!Box and operated using the remote USB port could only be linked to the computer by a click of the mouse, or automatically as the computer started up. The user then had to disconnect it manually or it would otherwise be occupied as far as the other computers in the home network were concerned. But the remote USB port makes all this a thing of the past!
