Cannot switch wireless LAN off by button

The wireless network of the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater does not switch off when you push the "WPS" button.

Cause

  • The option to switch wireless LAN on or off by button was removed from FRITZ!OS 6.90 so that you can set up wireless connections and integrate other FRITZ! products into your mesh WiFi by pushing a button. You can set up a schedule to switch the wireless function on or off automatically, or you can switch it manually with the user interface.

Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater.

Switching the wireless function automatically

The schedule function allows you to automatically switch wireless LAN on and off at certain times. You can either use the FRITZ!Box's schedule function to switch off wireless LAN in the entire home network, or you can use the repeater's own schedule to only switch its wireless LAN off:
