Speed of NTFS USB devices increased

If you are using NTFS formatted USB sticks or harddrives with your FRITZ!Box, you will experience a significant boost in speed.
You do not have to do anything to profit from that.

To check which filesystem your USB devices is using, see Homenetwork - USB Memory.

MyFRITZ! Access to FRITZ!Box without browser warning

Until now, when accessing the FRITZ!Box webinterface via HTTPs via MyFRITZ!, you were greeted by a warning, that the SSL encryption cannot be verified.
With this new version of FRITZ!OS you can now let the FRITZ!Box create a Let's Encrypt certificate for the MyFRITZ!Domain to get rid of the warning.

To do so you have to
1. register your FRITZ!Box at
2. activate the option "Let's Encrypt" in Internet / MyFRITZ!
3. wait until the status of the certificate changes to 'successfull'

good to know:
- to receive and verify the certificate, TCP Port 443 will be opened temporarily on your FRITZ!Box
- the certificate is valid for 60 days and will be automatically renewed
- accessing the FRITZ!Box via it's external IP adress or alternative DNS service will not use the Let's Encrypt certificate
- after activating the certificate, your MyFRITZ!App will require to "trust" the new fingerprint.


NEW: Test WiFi throughput in the mesh network with FRITZ!App WLAN

With the latest version of "FRITZ!App WLAN" for Android, you can use the new "Measure WiFi throughput" feature to test the connection speed of your Android device at different locations in your wireless network.
To do this, start measurement and go to various positions in your home. The FRITZ!App WLAN helps you to localize the spots where Wifi is good and bad. If you are using a FRITZ!WLAN Repeater, the app displays when the access point switches from the FRITZ!Box to the repeater and vice versa. With a measuring interval of up to 24 hours, you can perform a long-term measurement and observe the various activities of your Android device in your wireless network, like network changes, network terminations, and WiFi roaming.

Mesh WiFi with FRITZ!

The FRITZ!Box serves as the home network hub, and passes the data transmission rate of the DSL, cable, LTE or fiber optic connection on to your home and small office via high-performance WiFi. Increasingly fast internet connections, more web-enabled devices, video and gaming applications, and, especially, spatial extensions can lead to increased demand for WiFi performance and coverage. Due to their modular design and compact form (as outlet adapters), FRITZ!WLAN Repeaters and FRITZ!Powerline adapters with WiFi offer an appropriate and optimized expansion of the wireless network.

The smooth interaction of these products and devices is commonly associated with the term "mesh", and yields high performance, robustness and uninterrupted connections for the wireless LAN in the home network and in every space. "Mesh" means that the FRITZ! products build a homogenous network, are always connected and coordinated in an optimal manner, and provide for more convenience and performance. All FRITZ! products exchange information in the mesh network, synchronizing settings, optimizing the performance of connected terminal devices, and they do so independently, smoothly and without any user input.

For this to work, a number of central features are required -- and these have been part of the FRITZ!OS operating systems for years already. In particular, these include:

• One SSID/one network password for the entire home network
• Optimized TV and video streaming
• Shared wireless guest access for all FRITZ! products
• Unified wireless LAN night service
• Automatic channel selection for the best connection all the time
• Intelligent crossband repeating in 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz
• Band steering for utilization of the optimum WiFi band
• Central updating of all FRITZ! products in the home network
• Security through adoption of password for FRITZ!WLAN Repeaters and FRITZ!Powerline devices with WiFi

As always, an integral part of AVM's service after purchase is to offer new features and functions for those products already being deployed by our customers, like the FRITZ!Box, FRITZ!WLAN Repeater and FRITZ!Powerline products with WiFi, in the form of free updates.
This "Mesh WiFi" FRITZ! Lab continues along this path, currently offering the functionality explained above for the products FRITZ!Box 7490, FRITZ!Box 7590, and for FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1750E and FRITZ!Powerline 1240E, along with the following new features:

New graphical mesh overview for greater transparency, convenience and performance
The new Mesh Overview, located in the Home Network Overview of the FRITZ!Box user interface, shows the entire home network at a glance, with all information on FRITZ! products and the devices connected to them. If an update is available for one or more producs, it can be installed here. Even devices in the wireless guest network are listed here.

Best wireless performance
FRITZ! products are always perfectly coordinated with each other to achieve top performance without user intervention. Through automatic "band steering", dual-band repeaters find the ideal transmission band in 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz for each wireless terminal device. Intelligent crossband repeating provides for full throughput when wireless repeaters are deployed; optimizations for IP TV and streaming services allow users to enjoy video and music enjoyment without interruptions at any time. In addition to these technologies, the "WiFi Mesh" FRITZ! Lab introduces an expanded wireless LAN auto channel search, which periodically determines the best channel.

One touch of a button for all connections
A FRITZ!WLAN Repeater or FRITZ!Powerline product with WiFi is connected using a single button on the device - regardless of the connection technology (wireless LAN, powerline, DECT). Now repeaters can also be cascaded at the push of a button. This makes it easy to expand the mesh network flexibly by adding more FRITZ!WLAN Repeaters, FRITZ!Powerline and FRITZ!Box products. The mesh network automatically adjusts to changes, for instance, when a device switches to a different FRITZ!Box; devices search for a new connection themselves.
Integrating new wireless terminal devices like a smartphone can now be triggered on any device in the mesh home network.

Mesh convenience: Simple configuration, operation and expansion
In its role as "mesh master", when settings are changed, the FRITZ!Box automatically ensures that they are adopted by all FRITZ! products in the home network. Through the central update via the FRITZ!Box Home Network Overview, FRITZ!WLAN Repeaters and FRITZ!Powerline devices with WiFi can now be updated to lab versions as well. Then a FRITZ!Box with a lab version of FRITZ!OS automatically offers these devices the appropriate update.

Additional improvements in the Mesh lab:

- WiFi settings changed in the FRITZ!Box are adopted by connected FRITZ!WLAN Repeaters and FRITZ!Powerline devices

FRITZ! products in Mesh WiFi adopt settings from the FRITZ!Box; they also adopt changes automatically. Currently all settings for wireless LAN, for the wireless guest network, and for night settings.

Expanded WPS Function
- WPS for incorporating new wireless devices now can also be triggered on FRITZ!WLAN Repeaters or FRITZ!Powerline devices with WiFi

Simplified Extension of the Powerline Network
Additional FRITZ!Powerline products now can also be registered with the FRITZ!Box at the push of a button

Dynamic Uplink
Upon loss of connection, FRITZ!WLAN Repeaters and FRITZ!Powerline devices with WiFi search for an alternative connection themselves, whenever there is no connection to a wireless access point for longer than 15 minutes (example: switch to a different FRITZ!Box).

Simplified lab access for FRITZ!WLAN Repeaters and FRITZ!Powerline devices with WiFi

The only requirement for participating in the Mesh lab is to bring the FRITZ!Box up to date with the lab using the .image file contained here. After updating your FRITZ!Box, update any FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1750E and FRITZ!Powerline 1240E devices participating in the lab as described below.

Here's how to install the Mesh lab on the FRITZ!Box, FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1750E and FRITZ!Powerline 1240E:

1. First update your FRITZ!Box to the lab version (see "Testing the Lab Version")
2. After updating the FRITZ!Box, open the user interface at and select "Home Network -> Home Network Overview".
3. Here you see the new graphical Home Network Overview, which shows all of the connections in the home network.
If you are have the FRITZ!Repeater 1750E or FRITZ!Powerline 1240E in your network, an update is displayed for these devices. Trigger the update by clicking on "Update available".
4. After the update the products should be marked with an additional mesh symbol. This indicates that they are part of the mesh network and will benefit from the expanded features. If one of your FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1750E or FRITZ!Powerline 1240E devices is not marked with the mesh symbol, please enable the device for the expanded mesh function manually (see the "Button Behavior in FRITZ!OS 6.88 or Later").
