Determining the FRITZ!Box's BSSID

A BSSID (Basic Service Set Identifier) serves to unambiguously identify a wireless access point, for example a router or a repeater, in a wireless network (WiFi). Some applications for setting up wireless connections require you to enter a BSSID when configuring a wireless connection to your FRITZ!Box.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.

1 Determining the FRITZ!Box's wireless MAC address

The FRITZ!Box's BSSID is the MAC address at which wireless devices can reach the FRITZ!Box. Which MAC address is relevant depends on whether the 2.4 or 5 GHz frequency band is used to establish the wireless connection:

  1. Click "Wireless" ("WLAN") in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Radio Network" in the "Wireless" ("WLAN") menu.
  3. Make note of the respective MAC address listed in the "Active frequency bands" section.
