FRITZ!DECT 301 Service

FRITZ!DECT 301 is detected as FRITZ!DECT 300 or Comet DECT

With some FRITZ!Box products, an incorrect product name may be displayed for FRITZ!DECT 301. The radiator control is displayed with the product name "FRITZ!DECT 300" or "Comet DECT" in the "Home Network" menu of the FRITZ!Box user interface.
This is due to a display error. This does not affect the functioning of the radiator control.

Note:You can tell the difference between FRITZ!DECT 301 from FRITZ!DECT 300 by looking at the housing. FRITZ!DECT 301 has a rocker switch, for example, and FRITZ!DECT 300 has a setting wheel.
