For those who have the 7590, it is available now, other models to follow soon after.


Been keeping an eye on the change notes, some good stuff in there for those who currently mesh, support for WPA3, VPN improvements etc

I’ve been running the lab versions on my 7490 and it’s been great. Improved VPN performance has been good. Lots of annoying UX issues been fixed.

Good to read, toyed with the idea of moving to labs but then told myself to be patient.


I'm meshing with a couple of 7490s, so if there is improved performance there then great!

Oh, nice. Now I might add a second 7490 to my network to mesh it - currently have the 7490 router and a couple of D-Link COVR mesh units - but moving to a full AVM-based mesh would be neat.

I’ve recently purchased 2 additional 7490s and setup Mesh at home, so now I have a 3 device Mesh setup. Works pretty well, so definitely looking forward to seeing what improvements that 7.20 could bring.
