Currently 6.83, Fritz box is reporting firmware 7.00 is available.

 

Is it ok to update, or best to leave well enough alone? Fritzbox 7560.

I let it install on my 7590, no issues I can see, has a few new bells and whistles in it.

7.01 Fritz Firmware for 7490 came out this morning. Just did the update from inside the modem software. Looks good.

I have to say, that interface is pretty cool.

Also they seem to have gone zero compermise, allowing LAN, Powerline and wireless backhauls

Finally got round to putting 2 7490's together with ethernet backhaul. Shame the phone/DECT stuff doesnt 'mesh' over too - that would be awesome.
