Connecting FRITZ!Powerline with the home network via powerline

Connect FRITZ!Powerline adapters to your home network via powerline to expand it easily and efficiently with several powerline adapters. The powerline adapters are connected via your home's power mains and you do not have to lay network cables. Alternatively, you can use the FRITZ!Powerline adapter as a LAN or wireless LAN bridge.

If you bought the FRITZ!Powerline adapters in a set, they are already connected with each other and the operating mode "powerline bridge" is preconfigured. If you bought the FRITZ!Powerline adapters individually or now just want to add an additional powerline adapter to your powerline network, you must connect the powerline adapters with each other first.
