AVM is approaching the release of FritzOS 7.20 and is supplying the FritzBox 7590 and 7490 WLAN routers with a new laboratory update in advance. The beta update now available for download brings improvements in the areas of the Internet, WLAN, telephony, and USB.
The Berlin IT company AVM is now supplying its two DSL routers FritzBox 7590 and 7490 with a fresh FritzOS laboratory patch. The new beta raises the firmware version to Fritz!
