New for internet access with FRITZ!OS 7.0


Parallel operation of mobile network and DSL/WAN

FRITZ!OS now also supports parallel operation of DSL and LTE on the FRITZ!Box 6890 LTE. The combination of the speeds on the DSL line and the LTE connection significantly increases both download and upload rates. For each session the FRITZ!Box decides whether to connect via LTE or DSL. Thanks to the integrated WAN port of the FRITZ!Box 6890 LTE, parallel operation of LTE and an upstream fiber optic or cable modem.


Fallback options for internet access

FRITZ!OS 7 also includes new functions for the fallback mode of the FRITZ!Box 6890 LTE. It is now possible to use the internet connection via LTE until the data capacity available each month has been exhausted. For the rest of the month the FRITZ!Box 6890 LTE then automatically uses the available DSL or WAN connection. When the next month starts, the FRITZ!Box then switches back to the mobile network. Any mobile network or landline packages can be used for the internet connection of the FRITZ!Box 6890 LTE, even from different providers, individually or in combination. Only so-called "hybrid rates", which are based on closed systems with network aggregation, cannot be used.


New features for Mesh


General information on Mesh is presented at en.avm.de/mesh-networking.


Enabling the Mesh Function

To check whether a FRITZ! product is enabled for Mesh, see the Mesh Overview of the FRITZ!Box (the Mesh Master) under "Home Network / Mesh". Here the products in the Mesh are designated with a corresponding "Mesh active" symbol.

A FRITZ!WLAN Repeater or FRITZ!Powerline adapter with FRITZ!OS 6.90 or higher installed can be enabled for Mesh in various ways:

  • If the product has the factory settings configured and is being connected with the FRITZ!Box for the first time, it will be automatically enabled for Mesh.
  • If the product is already connected, but not enabled for Mesh, it is added to the Mesh by pressing a button on the product to be integrated and a button on the FRITZ!Box. On the FRITZ!Box, use the button that initiates WPS (depending on the model, press the "Connect" or "WPS" button briefly, or the "WLAN/WPS" button for 6 seconds)

Detailed instructions, additional information and the answers to frequently asked questions about Mesh are presented at en.avm.de/mesh-faq.


Telephony Mesh and Smart Home Mesh

With FRITZ!OS 7.0, telephony and Smart Home are also compatible with the Mesh.

The connections of cordless telephones and Smart Home products are displayed in the FRITZ!Box Mesh Overview. You can use a second FRITZ!Box as Mesh Repeater, and use telephones registered with the second FRITZ!Box with the numbers assigned in the first FRITZ!Box, the "Mesh Master".


Configuring a second FRITZ!Box as a Mesh Repeater with the press of a button

Requirements:

  • Your existing FRITZ!Box supports Mesh (FRITZ!OS 6.90 or higher). This box is the Mesh Master.
  • The FRITZ!Box to be deployed as a Mesh Repeater has been updated to FRITZ!OS 7.0 and you have restored its factory settings. This box is to become the Mesh Repeater.

Here's how:

  • Connect the LAN 1 port of the Mesh Repeater with the Master using a LAN cable
  • Initiate the Connect function on both boxes (7590: press the "Connect" button briefly; 7490: press and hold down the "WLAN/WPS" button for 6 seconds)

After the connection procedure is concluded, the second FRITZ!Box is ready for operation as a Mesh Repeater. (It is operating in "IP client" mode and, as a Mesh Repeater, adopts the wireless LAN settings and other important settings from the FRITZ!Box).

Please note that this function can be used only if the second FRITZ!Box is permanently connected with the first box by LAN cable.

If you've received the second FRITZ!Box from your internet provider this feature may not work in some cases. Please configurate this FRITZ!Box as a mesh repeater by visit the FRITZ!Box GUI manually. Instructions for configuring a FRITZ!Box connected via wireless LAN as a Mesh Repeater are presented at en.avm.de/mesh-faq


Transmit the telephone numbers of a Mesh Master to another FRITZ!Box in the home network

Once you have added an additional FRITZ!Box to the Mesh, you can configure it so that all telephone numbers are available on each FRITZ!Box. If your FRITZ!Box is connected with a landline, you can use the telephones connected to the second FRITZ!Box to make calls over the internet as well as on the landline. If the latest FRITZ!OS 7.0 is installed on both FRITZ!Boxes, the telephone numbers are transferred automatically in the Mesh once the "Telephony in the Mesh" option is enabled.

If the new FRITZ!Box is already a component of the Mesh, or if you have already set up telephone numbers on it, these telephone numbers must be deleted and one of the two FRITZ!Boxes must be restarted.

Then the new FRITZ!Box must be enabled for "Telephony in the Mesh". To do so proceed as follows:

  • Click "Home Network" in the user interface of the Mesh Master.
  • Click "Mesh" in the "Home Network" menu.
  • Click the "Mesh Settings" tab. In the "Use Telephony in the Mesh" section, click the "Enable" link next to the respective Mesh Repeater and then confirm that the procedure may be executed on the Mesh Master as well, if asked to do so.

The telephone numbers are now distributed in the Mesh and can be assigned to your telephones and other terminal equipment for telephony (for instance, answering machines) on the FRITZ!Box.

Note: Telephony Mesh is not the same thing as DECT repeating, which requires the support of special hardware on the FRITZ!Box deployed as the Mesh Master. If you would like to use DECT repeating, you can purchase the FRITZ!DECT Repeater 100 from an electronics retailer.
