FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 310 Service

Configuring network device to automatically obtain IP settings (DHCP)

All of the computers, smartphones, and other network devices connected to the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater need special IP settings automatically assigned by the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server of the wireless router (for example a FRITZ!Box) order to communicate with the repeater and router. For this, the device's IP settings must be configured to automatically obtain IP settings (DHCP client).
