FRITZ!DECT Repeater 100 Service - Knowledge Base
Registering FRITZ!DECT Repeater with a base station from another manufacturer
The FRITZ!DECT Repeater is the ideal complement to FRITZ!Box models with integrated DECT base stations (for example FRITZ!Box 7490). However, you can also register your FRITZ!DECT Repeater with a base station from another manufacturer in order to extend the range of the DECT radio network.
Requirements / Restrictions
- The base station must support the DECT-GAP profile.
Note:DECT-GAP is a common standard for DECT devices.
- The base station must be capable of allowing a repeater to register with it.
- The base station must allow unencrypted DECT connections to be established.
Important:If you cannot disable encryption for the DECT connection (for example with Speedport W920V), you cannot register the FRITZ!DECT Repeater with it.
- All repeaters must be directly registered with the base station ("star topology"). A repeater cannot be registered with another repeater (cascading).
1 Configuring the access point
- Enable DECT repeater support (repeater mode) in the base station.
- Disable encryption for the DECT connection in the base station.
Note:The manufacturer of the base station can provide you with information on how to configure the base station for use with a DECT repeater. You may need to configure additional settings.
2 Establishing a DECT connection
- Plug the repeater into an outlet near the base station.
- The "DECT" LED begins to flash steadily.
- Push the registration key on the base station within 2 minutes.
Now the repeater automatically registers itself with the base station. The "DECT" LED on the repeater remains lit as soon as the DECT connection has been established.
