Using a debit card reader with the FRITZ!Box
If your debit card reader is equipped with a LAN port (Ethernet) and/or has a wireless module, you can simply connect it to a LAN port or the wireless network of your FRITZ!Box and use it to read debit cards.
Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for your FRITZ!Box.
1 Enabling the FRITZ!Box's DHCP server
The FRITZ!Box is configured as a DHCP server in the factory settings. If you disabled the FRITZ!Box's DHCP server, configure the following settings:
Important:If the FRITZ!Box uses the Internet connection of another router, then the FRITZ!Box's DHCP server is disabled. In this case the upstream router must assign the necessary IP settings to the network devices.
- Click "Home Network" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
- Click "Home Network Overview" in the "Home Network" menu.
- Click on the "Network Settings" tab.
- Click the "IPv4 Addresses" button.
- Enable the DHCP server and define the range from which the FRITZ!Box assigns IP addresses.
Note:The FRITZ!Box uses the IP address 192.168.178.1 (subnet mask 255.255.255.0) and assigns IP addresses from xxx.20 to xxx.200 in the factory settings.
- Click "OK" to save the settings.
2 Configuring a debit card reader
The debit card reader needs special IP settings in order to communicate with the FRITZ!Box:
- Configure the debit card reader to automatically obtain IP settings (DHCP client).
Note:You can find information on configuring the debit card reader in its manual, or consult its manufacturer directly.
3 Connecting the debit card reader to the FRITZ!Box
- Use a network cable to connect the debit card reader to a LAN port on the FRITZ!Box,
- or, if the debit card reader has a wireless module:
- Connect the debit card reader to the FRITZ!Box's wireless network.
The debit card reader is now connected to the FRITZ!Box and can be used to read debit cards.
