Opening the user interface of FRITZ!Repeater

You want to access the FRITZ!Repeater but don't know how to log in? ✔ Enter http://fritz.repeater to open the user interface.

You can configure all of the functions and view detailed information about the product, your access, and connections in the user interface of your FRITZ!Repeater.

You can always open the user interface, even without internet access. Whether you open the user interface with the corresponding address or Mesh Overview depends on whether the FRITZ!Repeater is set to factory settings, integrated into the FRITZ!Box home network, or whether you are using a router from a different manufacturer.

1 Opening the user interface when set to factory settings

For manual configuration, you can directly connect a wireless device with the FRITZ!Repeater, or use a network cable to connect a device to the LAN port of the FRITZ!Repeater and then use the address of the FRITZ!Repeater to open the user interface:

  1. Either enter http://fritz.repeater or http://192.168.178.2 in the address bar of your web browser.

    Important:If you enter the address without the "http://", the web browser may start a web search instead of opening the user interface.

2 Opening the user interface from the Mesh Overview of the FRITZ!Box

After setting up the FRITZ!Repeater in the FRITZ!Mesh you can easily open the user interface of your FRITZ!Repeater with a mouse click in the Mesh Overview, just like with all other FRITZ! products, for example FRITZ!Smart Gateway or FRITZ!Powerline:

  1. Enter fritz.box in the address bar of your web browser.
  2. Click "Mesh" in the "Home Network" menu.
  3. Click the device name of the FRITZ!Repeater.

3 Opening the user interface when using a different router

After setting up the FRITZ!Repeater on a router from another manufacturer you can use its IP address to open the user interface of the FRITZ!Repeater:

  1. Enter http:// in the address bar of your web browser followed by the IP address of the FRITZ!Repeater (for example http://192.168.10.23). You can find the IP address that the router assigned to the FRITZ!Repeater in the router's user interface.

    Important:If you enter the address without the "http://", the web browser may start a web search instead of opening the user interface.
