FRITZ!Powerline 540E Service

Integrating powerline adapter from another manufacturer into a FRITZ!Powerline network

Since FRITZ!Powerline adapters are compatible with the IEEE P1901 standard, you can connect them with all current powerline adapters of the 500 and 200 Mbit/s class.
In order to integrate a powerline adapter from a different manufacturer into your FRITZ!Powerline network, you only have to assign it the network password ("pair") used to encrypt the powerline connection.

1 Connecting powerline adapters

  1. For the setup procedure, plug the powerline adapter into an outlet near a FRITZ!Powerline adapter.

    For trouble-free operation, you should always plug your powerline adapters directly into wall outlets and not into power strips.

  2. Push the "Encrypt" or "Pairing" button on the powerline adapter from the other manufacturer. Refer to the adapter's manufacturer for detailed instructions on the procedure.
  3. Push the "Powerline  · Security" or "Security" button on the FRITZ!Powerline adapter within 2 minutes.
    • The process is completed as soon as the "Powerline" LED on the powerline adapter remains lit. Now you can plug it into a different outlet at the desired location.
