How to set a new powerline network name using tpPLC Utility (new logo)?

Powerline network name groups powerline devices into a network. TP-Link powerline devices use the name HomePlugAV by default, and therefore they can form a network once plugged on the same electrical circuit. You can change this name to a new one, allowing only the powerline devices using the same name to join this network.

To set a new powerline network name, follow the steps below:

Please note: If the Utility hasn’t been installed yet, please refer to How to prepare for using the tpPLC Utility (new logo)?

1. Open the utility, and click Secure on the left column.

2. On the Secure Powerline Network page, enter a new name, or generate a random name. Then click Save.

Now only the powerline devices using the same name can join this network.
