Generating support data

To process your request, we need the support data for FRITZ!WLAN Repeater and your FRITZ!Box. Generate the support data while or as immediately as possible after the error occurs on a computer, Android smartphone or tablet. Do not manually restart it before generating the support data, for example by unplugging it. You cannot generate support data on an iPhone or iPad because iOS devices do not save all of the data.

Note:The support data contains the settings of your FRITZ!Box and the repeater as well as the event log. The data will only be used for processing your request and will not be passed on to third parties. The support data will be deleted after your case has been closed at the latest.
