FRITZ!WLAN Repeater N/G Service

Using FRITZ!WLAN Repeater to transmit audio files from a media server to an audio device

Your FRITZ!WLAN Repeater can serve as a UPnP render to transmit audio files on a media server (UPnP-AV server) in your local network to conventional audio devices. This way you can play audio files made available in the FRITZ!Box home network by the FRITZ!Box Media Server, for example, on your stereo system. A so-called UPnP control point on a computer or smartphone is used to select the audio files you wish to play.

Requirements

  • There is a media server in your home network that is configured and enabled.

    Note:You can use the FRITZ!Box Media Server or software such as TwonkyMedia, TVersity etc. on your computer as a media server.

1 Connecting the repeater to the router

2 Connecting an audio device to the repeater

3 Playing audio content on the media server

Here we show you how to use FRITZ!App Media to select audio files from the FRITZ!Box Media Server and transmit them to an audio device by means of the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater:
