FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1160 AC Service - Knowledge Base
FRITZ!WLAN Repeater's wireless network can no longer be found after it has been configured
Once the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater is connected with a router (for example FRITZ!Box) over wireless LAN (WiFi), its wireless network name (SSID) "FRITZ!WLAN Repeater..." is no longer displayed in the network list of wireless devices, such as example computers, tablets, smartphones.
1 FRITZ!WLAN Repeater assumes the repeater's network name (SSID)
When you set up the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater, it automatically takes on the wireless router's wireless network name and network key to allow wireless devices in the home network to quickly switch between networks(wireless roaming).
Since most wireless devices do not display different wireless networks with the same names (SSIDs) separately, after setting up the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater it may appear that its wireless network is not available. However, the wireless network of the wireless router and that of the repeater are grouped under one wireless network name.
Note:You can also assign a unique network name to the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater's wireless network.
