Those are general V6 updates.

New with FRITZ!OS 6.06:

 

-DSL: fixes a problem, that could cause certain line cards to crash when changing settings in the FRITZ!Box

 

-DSL: fixes a problem with bandplan 997

 

-system: general stability improved

That bandplan 997 fix might be good for VDSL users as "New Zealand is currently the only country which uses the 997 VDSL band plan"

OK, Updates from 5.51 to 6.06 and everything is working fine.

This was the first update that was seen by the "update firmware" within the fritzbox , so all is good.

I have confirmed that it fixes the issue with card lockups on certain cabinets.

I have a 7340.

I have posted the notice on the VDSL Performance thread.

So I'm ok to upgrade from 84.05.51 to 84.06.06? Like sir963 it's the first update that's appeared for me. There were problems with earlier updates, I hear. Does the upgrade preserve all your settings?

You can back up your settings and reimport them, or print them out as another backup

HOWEVER, the 6.06 update worked flawlessly for me

Worked fine for me, too. VDSL. Haven't had a chance to look at it other than just carrying on using it as usual.

Since I updated to FRITZ!OS 06.06 on my Fritzbox 7390 I've noticed significantly degraded internet performance . For example Youtube videos start playing but then stop usually after about 20 seconds. I can't even log into my gmail as it halts partway through loading every time.
I'm on a UFB 30/10 plan and Speedtest results look ok - upstream 27.39mbps , downstream 9.68mbps and 3ms ping.
Anyone got any ideas about what settings might fix this?

UPDATE: I had to disable IPV6. That fixed the problem.

Unfortunately I had the same problem as you, but disabling IPv6 did fix it.
I wonder if this was a coincidence? some general network issues?

Snap! Has been having issues with IPv6 if I recall correctly, so they recommend that you disable it if you are having problems.

cant say i have a single IPv6 issue myself.

6.06 does seem to be another mixed results firmware unfortunately.
