Integrating FRITZ!Powerline into a mesh WiFi

In the mesh WiFi, the FRITZ!Powerline wireless adapter automatically synchronizes itself with your FRITZ!Box and adopts all of its wireless LAN settings. The wireless networks of FRITZ!Powerline and FRITZ!Box are then meshed to form a large wireless LAN that is centrally controlled and optimized by the FRITZ!Box.

FRITZ!Powerline is displayed with the "Mesh enabled" symbol in the home network overview of the FRITZ!Box as soon as it is integrated in the mesh WiFi:
