FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1750E – Service

Wireless settings cannot be changed

The FRITZ!WLAN Repeater's wireless settings cannot be changed when it is in "LAN bridge" mode. This means that you cannot save a new wireless key or disable the MAC address filter, for example. When you click "Apply", the previous settings are displayed again.

Cause

  • The web browser settings are preventing a pop-up window from appearing in which the changed settings are displayed so they can be printed. The repeater does not save the new settings for security reasons.
