FRITZ!Powerline 1260E Service

Loading the FRITZ!Powerline factory settings

Load the factory settings to delete all of the individual settings you have made in your FRITZ!Powerline adapter. This makes sense if you are going to use the FRITZ!Powerline adapter at a different location or are planning to pass it on to another user, for example. In addition, this deletes incorrect settings that prevent it from working correctly.

You can either push a button or use the user interface of the FRITZ!Powerline adapter to load the factory settings.

1 Pushing a button to load the factory settings

  1. Push the corresponding button on the device:
    FRITZ!Powerline 500E / 520E "Reset" 2 seconds
    FRITZ!Powerline 510E / 530E "Security" 12 seconds
    FRITZ!Powerline 540E / 546E "WLAN/WPS" and "Powerline · Security" 10 seconds
    FRITZ!Powerline 1000E / 1220E "Powerline · Security"  10-15 seconds
    FRITZ!Powerline 1240E "WLAN-WPS/Powerline · Security" 15 seconds
    FRITZ!Powerline 1260E "Connect" 15 seconds
  2. All of the LEDs flash once during this process. The "Power" LED or "WLAN" LED remains lit as soon as the factory settings have finished loading.

2 Loading the factory settings with the user interface

  1. Click "System" in the FRITZ!Powerline user interface.
  2. Click "Backup" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click on the "Factory Settings" tab.
  4. Click the "Load Factory Settings" button.
