Changing the name of the wireless network (SSID) of FRITZ!Powerline
FRITZ!Powerline has a preconfigured wireless network name (SSID) in the factory settings. You can easily change this wireless network name.
We recommend using identical wireless network names for your home network. This makes it easier for wireless devices to switch between wireless networks (wireless roaming). If you are using FRITZ!Powerline as a "wireless bridge", you should change the wireless network name of the wireless router (for example a FRITZ!Box) first because you must reconfigure all of the wireless connections to the wireless router after changing the wireless network name.
Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for FRITZ!Powerline.

- Click "Wireless" ("WLAN") in the FRITZ!Powerline user interface.
- Click "Radio Network" in the "Wireless" ("WLAN") menu.
