Does your list for Santa include a new smartphone, an Xbox One X or new wireless speakers? Or are you putting a smart TV, tablet, or a more powerful notebook under the Christmas tree for yourself? No matter what technical gadgets bring you joy this season, the FRITZ!Box and its companions for increasing wireless range can network your new "toys" across your entire living space.

Playing back music via the home network

For instance, did you know how easy it is to stream those favorite songs stored on your smartphone to wireless speakers via the FRITZ!Box network? The only requirement is that your speakers support the UPnP standard or are compliant with DLNA. Step-by-step instructions are presented in our Knowledge Base.

No cable clutter in the new year

The FRITZ!Powerline series uses your electrical wiring to exchange data between the FRITZ!Box and your connected devices. This saves you the task of laying LAN cable to other rooms or stories in order to use your new notebook wherever you like, but still lets you benefit from the fast transmission rates provided by your FRITZ!Box. If you would like to learn more about our powerline technology, take a look at this guide. If your FRITZ!Powerline adapter also supports wireless LAN, your smartphone or tablet can take advantage of the expanded wireless range as well.

Automatic shutdown feature

Plugging your new smart TV into a well concealed power outlet can make it difficult to switch the television completely off overnight. Our FRITZ!DECT smart plug offers a solution. Simply plug it in and set the power supply to your devices on a schedule in the FRITZ!Box user interface. You can also control your Christmas lighting with a FRITZ!DECT 200, of course.

A final tip for better wireless reception

In practice, tablets tend to be used throughout the home network. With FRITZ!WLAN Repeaters you can amplify the wireless signal from your FRITZ!Box to the very last corner of your residence. This means you can treat your family and yourself to music and video streaming throughout the home.
