Overview of FRITZ!Box models for extending wireless range

In order to increase the wireless range (WiFi) of your FRITZ!Box with Internet access (access point), you can set up one or more additional FRITZ!Boxes as repeaters. This overview shows you which FRITZ!Box models can be used as access points or repeaters to extend the wireless range.

Note:The model name of your FRITZ!Box is printed on the sticker on the underside of the device.

If your FRITZ!Box is not listed in the overview, then it cannot be used as an access point or a repeater. In this case you can extend the wireless range with a FRITZ!WLAN Repeater.
