Device and ports

To improve WLAN reception, Swisscom offers the WLAN-Box; a home network accessory for the Internet-Box 3, Internet-Box 2, Internet-Box standard and Internet-Box plus. This increases the range of the existing WLAN network.

It can also be used to connect the Swisscom TV and Internet-Box and as a WLAN access point.

The WLAN-Box 2 supports the latest WLAN standard (Wi-Fi 6), providing noticeably higher WLAN speeds of up to 4.8 Gbit/s.

The WLAN Box 2 is also compatible with the older version of the WLAN Box.

The perforated side walls of the WLAN-Box 2 differentiate it visually from its predecessor, the WLAN-Box.

Technical information

Steering

Steering ensures that your devices (e.g. smart phone or tablets) are automatically connected to the best WLAN network to achieve maximum speed. Besides the 2.4 GHz standard band, with which every WLAN device is compatible, the WLAN-Box also has the 5 GHz band. The WLAN-Box 2 also supports the latest WLAN standard (Wi-Fi 6), providing noticeably higher WLAN speeds of up to 4.8 Gbit/s.

 

Depending on its position, the WLAN device (e.g. Smartphone) connects to the Internet-Box or WLAN-Box without interrupting Internet access. If a device does not connect at any time, briefly switch the device’s WLAN off and on again (e.g. in airplane mode).It will then reconnect to the best WLAN.
