FRITZ!Box 7390 – Service

Overview of FRITZ!Box models that support the repeater function

You can increase the wireless range (WiFi) of your FRITZ!Box if you configure additional FRITZ!Boxes to be used as repeaters. All FRITZ!Boxes involved must support the repeater function.

This overview shows you which FRITZ!Box models support the repeater function. The complete model name of your FRITZ!Box is displayed on the "Overview" page of the user interface. You can also find the exact model name on the sticker on the underside of the device.

If your FRITZ!Box does not support the repeater function, you can use a FRITZ!WLAN Repeater to increase the wireless range.

Note:Current FRITZ!Box models do not support the obsolete WDS (Wireless Distribution System) method. In 2012, WDS support was removed from older models with the release of FRITZ!OS 5.50 because the trade association Wi-Fi Alliance discontinued further development of WDS over 10 years ago; therefore, they never adapted the WDS specifications to take current standards for wireless security and speed into account.
