Wireless devices can establish wireless connections to your home network without interruptions either via FRITZ!Powerline 540E or FRITZ!Box: the device offering the best reception in the different locations in your home will establish the connection. For this the FRITZ!Box and the FRITZ!Powerline 540E must have the same radio network settings. To apply the FRITZ!Box radio network settings you only have to start "WPS" at FRITZ!Box and FRITZ!Powerline 540E.
In crowded wireless surroundings, the new FRITZ!OS offers helpful analyses of your wireless LAN environment. Under "Wireless / Radio Channel" the loading of the radio channel currently in use is shown over time for the currently used frequency band. The lower the loading of the radio channel, the higher data throughput that can be achieved.
Thanks to the latest wireless and Powerline drivers, your connections are even more stable and powerful.
