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 your network.

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

Step 1

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