FRITZ!Powerline 546E – Service

Setting up a schedule for FRITZ!Powerline's wireless network

The schedule function allows you to automatically switch FRITZ!Powerline's wireless network (WiFi) on and off at certain times. This way you can disable the wireless network at night and thus reduce the adapter's power consumption, for example. If you are using a FRITZ!Box as a wireless router, you can have FRITZ!Powerline adopt the corresponding settings. The settings are applied regardless of whether you turned the wireless network on or off manually beforehand. You can enable the wireless network at any time using the adapter's user interface.

Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for FRITZ!Powerline.
