Assigning a unique network name (SSID) to the FRITZ!Box
In the factory settings, a common wireless network name (SSID) is preset in the FRITZ!Box. If you want your wireless devices to specifically connect to a particular FRITZ!Box wireless network (WiFi), you must assign each wireless network a unique wireless network name because most wireless devices do not display different wireless networks with the same name separately.
1 Changing the name of the wireless network (SSID)
- Click "Wireless" ("WLAN") in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
- Click "Radio Network" in the "Wireless" ("WLAN") menu.
- In the field "Name of the wireless radio network (SSID)," enter a name of your choice for the frequency band you are using that does not contain special characters.
Important:Not all wireless devices support all special characters. Therefore, only use standard Latin letters (not letters such as ä, ë, ö, ü, á, é, í) and numbers in the wireless network name.
- Click "Apply" to save your settings.
2 Setting up the wireless connection
- Use your wireless device to search for wireless networks in the vicinity.
Note:You can find instructions on establishing wireless connections in the manual, or consult the manufacturer of the operating system or wireless device.
- Select your FRITZ!Box's wireless network and enter the network key if you are asked to do so.
