Since updating FRITZ!OS, wireless connection drops frequently

Since updating the FRITZ!OS of your FRITZ!WLAN Repeater, the wireless connection between a notebook, smartphone, or other wireless device and the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater drops frequently if the repeater is connected to the router using "LAN bridge" mode.

1 Wait for upcoming FRITZ!OS

We are currently working on a solution and shall correct this behavior with a FRITZ!OS update for the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater as soon as possible. We cannot give you an exact release date for the update yet. 

Note:You can have the push service notify you by e-mail when new updates are available. This option can be enabled in the user interface under "System > Push Service".

Workaround

You can install a beta version until a new FRITZ!OS update has been released; this issue has already been resolved in this beta version:

  1. Call up https://service.avm.de/downloads/ in a web browser, switch to the folder "Beta", and then switch to the subfolder for your FRITZ!WLAN Repeater model.
  2. Download the beta version for your FRITZ!WLAN Repeater model to the computer.
  3. Unzip the zip file to your computer (for example to the Desktop).
  4. Install the beta version (image file) as described in the infobeta.txt file.

    Note:You can reinstall the regular FRITZ!OS for your FRITZ!WLAN Repeater at any time. The infobeta.txt file contains instructions on the procedure.
