To use the FRITZ!DECT 500 you'll need a FRITZ!Box with DECT functionality plus FRITZ!OS 7.20 or later (exceptions: FRITZ!Box 7560 and 7430). Versions / Lab versions of FRITZ!OS starting with 7.19 also work with the FRITZ!DECT 500.
The FRITZ!DECT 500 does not support the repeater function of the FRITZ!DECT Repeater 100. The LED light must be in the reception area of the FRITZ!Box.
Once FRITZ!OS 7.20 is released for your FRITZ!Box model, please download and use this. After updating your FRITZ!Box to FRITZ!OS 7.20, please reconnect the FRITZ!DECT 500 to the FRITZ!Box.
If you've tried using FRITZ!DECT 500 with an older version of FRITZ!OS, disconnect the LED lamp from the FRITZ!Box before trying again with FRITZ!OS 7.20.
