Cannot register FRITZ!DECT Repeater

Registration of a FRITZ!DECT Repeater to a FRITZ!Box fails. After the automatic configuration, the DECT LED on the repeater flashes continuously and the DECT connection between the FRITZ!Box and repeater is not established.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.

Simply proceed as described below. After each measure, check whether the problem is solved.

1 Maximum number has been reached

You can register up to six repeaters with the FRITZ!Box. If you have already registered six repeaters, you cannot register any more repeaters.
