Switching FRITZ!WLAN Repeaters in a series (wireless cascading)

Mesh WiFi supports wireless cascading of FRITZ! products in your home network. This means that not only can you connect a FRITZ!WLAN Repeater to your FRITZ!Box, you can also connect it to an additional FRITZ!WLAN Repeater to increase the range of your wireless LAN in a specific direction.
