[1] Automatic detection an configuration of operating mode

For configuration of a FRITZ!Repeater in "LAN Bridge" mode (using a Powerline connected with the FRITZ!Box by cable as the wireless access point), previously the FRITZ!Powerline user interface had to be opened. Making this setting is no longer necessary with this FRITZ!OS version - the FRITZ!Powerline automatically detects the operating mode.

  • Factory settings must be configured in the FRITZ!Repeater (to reset the factory settings: Wait 2 minutes for the FRITZ!Repeater to be completely startet, than press and hold the button on the repeater for at least 15 seconds).
  • Remove the repeater from the outlet.
  • Connect the FRITZ!Repeater with any LAN port on the FRITZ!Box via LAN cable.
  • Insert the FRITZ!Repeater into an electrical outlet. Upon starting, the repeater is already set to "LAN Bridge" mode.
  • Now enable the repeater for Mesh (press briefly on the button on the repeater, and briefly on the "Connect/WPS" or "WPS" button on the FRITZ!Box). Now the repeater adopts the settings and forms a Mesh Wi-Fi with the FRITZ!Box. More information on this subject is available at en.avm.de/mesh.
  • If you want to switch back to a connection of the FRITZ!Repeater to the FRITZ!Box via WiFi, remove the LAN-cabel from the FRITZ!Repeater and repeat the process without connecting a LAN-Cable

Restoring factory defaults

To reset the FRITZ!Repeater to factory settings: Wait 2 minutes for the FRITZ!Repeater to be completely startet, then press and hold the button on the repeater for at least 15 seconds


Enabling the Mesh Function

To check whether a FRITZ! product is enabled for Mesh, see the "Mesh Overview" of the FRITZ!Box (the Mesh Master) under "fritz.box / Home Network / Mesh". Here the products in the Mesh are designated with a corresponding "Mesh active" icon.

A FRITZ!Repeater or FRITZ!Powerline adapter can be enabled for Mesh in various ways:

  • If the FRITZ!Repeater or FRITZ!Powerline adapter has the factory settings configured and is being connected with the FRITZ!Box via WPS for the first time, it will be automatically enabled for Mesh.
  • If the FRITZ!Repeater or FRITZ!Powerline adapter is already connected, but not enabled for Mesh, it is added to the Mesh by pressing a button on the product to be integrated and a button on the FRITZ!Box. On the FRITZ!Box, use the button that initiates WPS: depending on the model, press the "Connect" or "WPS" button briefly, or the "WLAN/WPS" button for 6 seconds

Detailed instructions, additional information and the answers to frequently asked questions about Mesh are presented at en.avm.de/mesh-faq.


Set factory default For restoring the repeater to factory defaults, press the "Connect" button for 15 seconds
