Find out where to position your WLAN-Box for the best reception and how to install and connect it with your Internet/TV-Box and other devices in your home.
Always stand the WLAN-Box upright to achieve optimum WLAN reception. Never lay it flat as this will greatly impair WLAN reception. The WLAN-Box should not be positioned close to other objects or metal casings either.
For more information about the WLAN-Box and detailed installation instructions, see the device page.
The WLAN-Box can be used in two ways:
To establish a connection between the WLAN-Box and Internet-Box, proceed as follows:
Pairing is necessary whether the WLAN-Box is connected to the Internet-Box via WLAN or Ethernet, to transfer all the Internet-Box settings to the WLAN-Box.
Using the WLAN-Box also extends your existing WLAN reception range.
If you have an Internet-Box 2 or newer, you can connect up to 4 TV-Boxes as shown. With Internet-Box plus or Internet-Box standard, only one TV-Box can be connected to the WLAN-Box.
You can add a maximum of 4 WLAN-Boxes to your existing WLAN network.
Thanks to the mesh function, you can position the WLAN-Boxes in a star or series configuration with the Internet-Box.
For an optimum connection, we recommend using an Ethernet cable to connect the WLAN-Box to the Internet-Box.
Many WLAN devices like Windows computers, Android smartphones or IP radios support automatic pairing with no need for entering a password. These devices have a WPS function (Wi-Fi Protected Setup).
Press the WLAN-Box plus (+) button and the activate the WPS function on your device within two minutes to automatically pair it with your WLAN-Box. The devices then pair automatically.
