Setting up a schedule for the FRITZ!Box's Wi-Fi network

The schedule function allows you to automatically switch the FRITZ!Box's Wi-Fi network on and off at certain times. This way you can disable the Wi-Fi network at night and thus reduce the FRITZ!Box's power consumption, for example.

1 Setting up a Wi-Fi schedule

  1. Click "Wi-Fi" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Schedule" in the "Wi-Fi" menu.
  3. Enable the option "Use schedule for Wi-Fi network" and define when the Wi-Fi network should be switched off.

    Note:You can find further information on the settings options in the FRITZ!Box's online help, which you can access by clicking the "Help" symbol .

  4. Click "Apply" to save the settings.

Now the schedule for the Wi-Fi network is enabled.

Note:Regardless of the schedule, you can enable or disable the Wi-Fi network at any time by briefly pushing the "WLAN" button or entering the keypad code #96*1* or #96*0* on a telephone connected to the FRITZ!Box. With a FRITZ!Fon, you can select "Home network > Wi-Fi" on the telephone to switch the Wi-Fi network on or off.
