@propeller said in Controlling AVM Fritz Powerline 546e:
The Powerline devices are not longer listed on the web interface in the smarthome section.
Does this mean you are no longer able to switch it via the Fritz!OS WebUI? If so, it may be a firmware mismatch between the plug and the router.
If you upgraded the plug to Fritz!OS 7.01 the router should have Fritz!OS 6.90, at least. Normally, this should be the case as the new plug firmware is no longer provided for download, but it is a part of the router firmware upgrade procedures.
In my case the upgrade of the powerline adapters (I have 1000e not 645e, so I can’t reproduce your case) as part of router upgrade did not work at all because they were running a very old firmware. So, it may be sensible to check which firmware version you have on the router and on the plug.
To solve my case (even manual upgrade via UI wasn’t possible), I used the Fritz!Powerline desktop software to upgrade the plug firmware to the latest firmware offered.
