FRITZ!Box 4040 Service - Knowledge Base
Opening the FRITZ!Powerline user interface
You can easily open the user interface of the FRITZ!Powerline adapter on all computers, smartphones, or tablets in the home network by entering the address http://fritz.powerline in a web browser. Then you can configure all of the functions and view detailed information about the product, your access, and connections in the user interface.
- You can either enter http://fritz.powerline or the IP address (http://192.168.178.2 in the factory settings) to open the user interface.
- Always enter the complete address http://fritz.powerline. If you enter the address without the "http://", for example, the web browser may start a web search instead of opening the user interface.

- If you connected the FRITZ!Powerline adapter with a FRITZ!Box, you can also simply use the FRITZ!Box's Mesh overview to open the user interface.
