Changing the FRITZ!Repeater's wireless settings

When setting up the FRITZ!Repeater, it automatically adopts the wireless network name (SSID) and network key of the FRITZ!Box (or another router) to allow wireless devices in the home network to quickly switch between networks (wireless roaming). If the FRITZ!Repeater is used in a Mesh with a FRITZ!Box, the FRITZ!Repeater also adopts all of the other wireless settings; if the Mesh Master's settings are changed, these changes are adopted automatically.

You can also configure the FRITZ!Repeater's wireless settings according to your individual needs.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Repeater.
