Setting up FRITZ!Repeater in the FRITZ!Box home network
The FRITZ!Repeater easily and efficiently adds an additional wireless access point to your home network. This way you will have ideal wireless reception and high-speed connections to the internet and home network, even when outside the wireless range (WiFi) of your FRITZ!Box.
When using a FRITZ!Box with FRITZ!OS 7 or later, the FRITZ!Repeater is automatically integrated into the FRITZ! Mesh during setup. The FRITZ!Repeater adopts all of the wireless settings from the FRITZ!Box, such as wireless access information and guest access, and can be used directly by all wireless devices in the home network.
There are various ways to connect the FRITZ!Repeater with the home network. Which connection type is best depends on the operational environment.
1 Connecting the FRITZ!Repeater with a FRITZ!Box via wireless LAN

A wireless connection to the FRITZ!Box makes sense if
- you want to position the FRITZ!Repeater within the wireless range of the FRITZ!Box.
- the FRITZ!Repeater should be repositioned quickly and easily if necessary.

2 Connecting FRITZ!Repeater with another repeater in home network via wireless LAN
Fig.: Connection scenario for wireless bridge mode using a different repeater (cascading)

- the other repeater is a Mesh Repeater, regardless of whether it is a FRITZ!Repeater, FRITZ!Powerline adapter or FRITZ!Box.
