Loading the FRITZ!Repeater's factory settings

You want to restore the FRITZ!Repeater to factory settings? ✔ All it takes is the touch of a button to reset it.

Load the factory settings to delete all of the individual settings you have made in your FRITZ!Repeater. This makes sense if you are going to use the FRITZ!Repeater at a different location or are planning to pass it on to another user, for example.

You can either push the button or use the user interface of the FRITZ!Repeater to load the factory settings.

Important:If the FRITZ!Repeater is connected to a FRITZ!Box using a network cable, disconnect it before you load the factory settings. Otherwise, the repeater automatically configures itself as a LAN bridge during the initial startup process.

1 Loading the factory settings by button

  1. Push and hold down the Connect button for about 15 seconds.
  2. The Connect LED now indicates by alternately flashing and lighting up that the factory settings are being loaded and that the FRITZ!Repeater is being restarted. This process may take several minutes.
  3. The Connect LED flashes continuously for at least 1 minute as soon as the factory settings have finished loading.

2 Loading the factory settings with the user interface

  1. Click "System" in the user interface of the FRITZ!Repeater.
  2. Click "Reset" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click on the "Factory Settings" tab.
  4. Click the "Load Factory Settings" button.
