Fast and secure wireless connections
The FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick enables wireless
connection between your computer or
laptop and the FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN or other
WLAN networks. The WLAN stick offers high
transfer rates, easy installation and fulfills
even the highest security standards.
The FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick is also equipped
with the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) function.
Thanks to the WPS standardized by the Wi-Fi
Alliance, users can now establish a secure
remote connection to WLAN devices of other
With the FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick, Internet
connections can be established via wireless
networks, as well as reliable and secure
connections via ADSL modem/router. In
Windows 7, Vista and XP (from Service Pack 2
onward), the FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick even
installs itself without the need for a driver CD.
In addition to the latest security standard
WPA2 (802.11i), WPA or WEP encryption can
also be selected for remote sides which do not
offer this standard. FRITZ!WLAN products come
with an individual, unique password, which
increases security in wireless networks still
Used in combination with a FRITZ!Box, the
Stick & Surf technology offers the highest
comfort and security when setting up the
WLAN network. The FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick is
simply plugged into the USB port of the
FRITZ!Box for a few seconds. The security
settings of the FRITZ!Box are then transferred
automatically to the stick. When the stick is
plugged into the computer, an automatically
encrypted WLAN connection is established.
The FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick complies with all the
latest WLAN standards 802.11 g/b, including
the fast WLAN N (802.11n). With a data
throughput of 150 Mbit/s, the stick offers the
highest possible mobility for work and fast
connections with maximum security.

AVM Stick & Surf for automatic secure WLAN
With the AVM Stick & Surf technology, a secure connection can be established between
a computer and any FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN with no additional settings required. The stick
is simply plugged briefly into the USB port and security settings such as network
password and type of encryption are transferred automatically from the FRITZ!Box to the
FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick. The stick is then disconnected from the FRITZ!Box and plugged
into the computer.
Secure encryption in just three quick steps:
• WLAN security with WPA2 (802.11i), compatible with WPA/WEP (128/64)
• Simple transfer of security settings from AVM FRITZ!Box products via USB port (Stick & Surf)
• Software for monitoring the connection and adapting the security options
System requirements
• Pentium-class PC or laptop (500 MHz or higher)
• 64 MB RAM and approximately 5 MB free hard disk space
• Computer with USB 2.0 (recommended) or USB 1.1 port (with reduced data throughput)
• Operating systems: 32- and 64-bit Microsoft Windows 7, Vista, XP (from SP 2 onward)
• CD-ROM drive
• WLAN access point in accordance with IEEE 802.11n/g/b
Power supply
• USB bus-powered, no external power supply required
Sophisticated energy management –
reducible transmitting power
The FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick control software enables settings to be adapted to suit
individual situations and also acts as a connection monitor. For example, the transmitter
power of the WLAN stick can be reduced as desired, as maximum transmitter power is
not always required for many applications. The relevant settings can also be made at the
AVM access points. Here, the transmitting power can be reduced to up to six percent of
the maximum value. Sophisticated energy management reduces power consumption
significantly, thus contributing to long usage times in mobile operation.
