FRITZ!Powerline 500E Service

Assigning names to FRITZ!Powerline adapters

You can individually name each FRITZ!Powerline adapter in your network (for example "living room", "FRITZ!Box"). This way you can keep track of your adapters if you are using multiple adapters, and you can specifically access a particular adapter.

1 Preparations

2 Naming a FRITZ!Powerline adapter

  1. Run the FRITZ!Powerline software.
  2. Double-click the image of the FRITZ!Powerline adapter whose name you wish to change.
    • The "Device Profile" window opens.
  3. Enter a name of your choice in the "Name" field.
  4. Click "OK" to save your settings.

Now the adapter is displayed in the FRITZ!Powerline user interface with the name you assigned it (see fig.).
