Hello,

I currently have an internet box 2 with a separate tv box as part of my M Internet and M blue tv subscription.

 

I received an offer to upgrade to a WLAN box 2, but i do not understand the difference between the WLAN box and the internet box.

 

Can you please advise because it's not clear from your website and products.

 

Thanks in advance,

the WLAN Box or WLAN Box 2 serves as a repeater or amplifier of the wifi signal in a home in places where it would be of poor quality, it can also be used to connect a TV-Box.

an Internet-Box 2 or other is a router for connection to the public Internet network.

the WLAN Box needs a router to be functional must be synchronized with the router.
