New mesh function: Even more WLAN range

Poor WLAN reception in your home? Installing one or more WLAN-Boxes should improve this for you. Good news: Thanks to the mesh function, you now have even more Wi-Fi range and are also flexible in the placement of the boxes.

However, thanks to the new mesh function, it no longer matters whether you position your devices in a star configuration around your Internet-Box or connect them ‘in series’. This is because the WLAN-Boxes are now able to forward the signals to the router, which is all thanks to the mesh function.

Hi @ThomasS 

 

is the new mesh function only available with the new WLAN box or also the old ones do?

I have a IB3 and 2x WLAN box of the older generation (i.e. without ventilation holes on the side)

Saluti e grazie

The new mesh functionality is available with WLAN-Box and WLAN-Box 2.

You need firmwarm version 11.03.33, which should already be installed by now.
