The AVM Fritzbox (http://www.avm.de/de/Produkte/FRITZBox/index.php) does not offer monitoring capability though SNMP or other standard monitoring technologies.

Can I monitor the bandwidth usage of the DSL, ADSL or VDSL Internet connection using PRTG?

PRTG is able to monitor your AVM Fritzbox. The sensor is called: "AVM FRITZ!Box WAN Interface Sensor".

Quote from the manual:

"The AVM FRITZ!Box WAN Interface Sensor monitors the internet traffic of a FRITZ!Box internet access router from European manufacturer AVM. It returns the incoming and outgoing internet traffic. There are no credentials necessary."

Hey Paolo,

Yes, this is correct.

Currently, the only way to monitor your FritzBox is by using the sensors from PRTG Tools Family with out native EXE/Script Advanced sensors.

Best regards,
Sven
