For WLAN devices and their use in the house, apartment, office and Co., the Fritz! Box manufacturer AVM has this year the AVM Fritz! Repeater 600 in the human body and facts about the AVM Fritz! Repeater 1200 released. Their numbering already indicates the data turnover that is possible with the forwarded WiFi. Details on the devices and the supported WLAN bands as well as further technical details can be found in this post. There is also some information about the Fritz! App WLAN for iOS and Android.
This repeater is made for devices with WLAN N, which transmits over frequencies around 2,4 GHz with up to 600 Mbit / s. It does not support dual-band WiFi, i.e. no frequency around 5 GHz. Therefore, you should know exactly for which devices you want to expand the WLAN network. The AVM Fritz! Repeater 600 is simply plugged into a socket and set up at the push of a button. Fritz! Box settings can be applied automatically. The app can be used for optimal use (see below). The product has been available since the beginning of August 2019; Details can be found on the Amazon product page.
If you want to be on the safe side or want to address dual-band devices directly with the repeater, you can also buy this model. The numbering indicates the combination of up to 866 Mbit / s over 5 GHz and up to 400 Mbit / s over 2,4 Hz frequencies. Here, too, the facility is easy to implement. Devices that do not support WLAN (computers, laptops, etc.) can be connected via a gigabit LAN connection (Ethernet port). Coupling with the Fritz! Box router and AVM apps is easy to implement. Use with routers from other manufacturers should also be possible. Details and purchase options you can find here.
The "Fritz! App WLAN" for iPhone, iPad and Android devices can be used to check the connection quality in the home WLAN network. An evaluation of the repeater position is also included so that the accessory devices described above can be ideally positioned using the app. The exact range of functions differs slightly between the two versions for the Apple and Google operating systems. Details and the download option can be found in App Store and Play Store.
