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.
