Installing the FRITZ!WLAN Stick

When you connect the FRITZ!WLAN Stick to the USB port on your computer, driver software is automatically installed that integrates the FRITZ!WLAN Stick into your computer's operating system and provides a connection monitor for monitoring the wireless connection (WiFi).

Requirements / Restrictions

  • Windows 10, Windows 8 or Windows 7 (64-bit or 32-bit) is installed on the computer.

1 Transmitting the wireless security settings to FRITZ!WLAN Stick

If you are using a FRITZ!Box with a USB port as your wireless router, you can easily transmit the wireless security settings to the FRITZ!WLAN Stick before installing it:

  1. Connect the FRITZ!WLAN Stick to a USB port on the FRITZ!Box.

The "Info" LED remains lit as soon as the wireless security settings have been transmitted.

  1. Connect the FRITZ!WLAN Stick to a USB port on your computer. Windows automatically detects the FRITZ!WLAN Stick and starts to install the drivers. This process may take some time.
  2. If the message "Installation of [...] concluded successfully" is displayed, click "Close".
  3. If the window "CD drive [...]: AVM FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick [...]" is displayed, click "AVM FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick [...] Installation" and follow the instructions.

Now the FRITZ!WLAN Stick is installed. The wireless connection to the FRITZ!Box is set up automatically if you already transmitted the wireless security settings to the stick. If you are not using a FRITZ!Box with a USB port as your wireless router, set up the wireless connection manually.
