Integrating FRITZ!Powerline into the Mesh via LAN

Integrate your FRITZ!Powerline adapter into the Mesh of your FRITZ!Box via LAN to increase the Wi-Fi range of your home network easily and efficiently. As a Mesh Repeater, the FRITZ!Powerline adapter then automatically adopts all of the settings from the FRITZ!Box (Mesh Master), such as Wi-Fi access information and guest access. In the Mesh, your wireless devices automatically connect to the wireless access point with the best Wi-Fi reception.

From then on, you can simply make changes in the Mesh in the Mesh Master. The Mesh Master automatically transmits the new settings to all of the Mesh Repeaters. If you still want to access the user interface of the Mesh Repeater, use the password from the Mesh Masters to log into the Mesh Repeater.

As soon as the FRITZ!Powerline adapter is integrated into the Mesh, it is marked in the user interface of the Mesh Master with the Mesh symbol :
