Setting up a Wi-Fi connection with FRITZ!App WLAN

With FRITZ!App WLAN you can easily connect Android devices to your FRITZ!Box home network or another wireless router. The app gives you an overview of all of the Wi-Fi networks in the environment and displays detailed information about them. For example, you can see at a glance whether it is the Wi-Fi network of a wireless router (for example FRITZ!Box) or a wireless repeater (for example FRITZ!Repeater) and which frequency band is being used. The app also displays the Wi-Fi channel, signal strength, and encryption method being used.
