Technical information


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.


Depending on its position, the WLAN device 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.
