Integrating FRITZ!WLAN Repeater into the Mesh

Integrate a FRITZ!WLAN Repeater into your FRITZ!Box's Mesh to easily and efficiently increase the wireless range of your home network. As a Mesh Repeater, the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater then automatically adopts all of the wireless settings from the FRITZ!Box (Mesh Master) and creates an additional wireless network over which your devices can connect to the home network.

A repeater with a LAN port (for example FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1750E) can either be integrated into the Mesh via wireless LAN or using a network cable (LAN). Which type of connection is suitable for your home network depends on your requirements and the conditions at your location.
