Setting up a wireless connection with FRITZ!App WLAN

With FRITZ!App WLAN you can easily connect Android devices to your FRITZ!Box or another wireless router. The app gives you an overview of all of the wireless networks (WiFi) in the environment and displays detailed information on them. For example, you can immediately tell whether the wireless network belongs to a wireless router (for example a FRITZ!Box) or a wireless repeater (for example FRITZ!WLAN Repeater) and which frequency band is being used. In addition, the app displays the wireless channel, signal strength, and encryption method being used.
