AVM FRITZ! Lab 6.69-41049 for FRITZ! Box 7490!




small fringe groups message to all readers who, like me 7490 using a FRITZ! Box to your Internet connection and sometimes even squint here on experimental laboratory firmware to try out new features. There is now the FRITZ! Lab 6.69-41049 for the FRITZ! Box 7490, which should bring some improvements and bug fixes again. Who did not previously looked at the new laboratory version that gets the current version not only fixes with, but a whole bunch of new features that are part of AVM now undergoing a finishing touch.


So there is in the current test series, for example, band steering. Dualband-enabled wireless devices can be controlled at a congested wireless band that they preferred the register in each case less belastetet wireless frequency band. This process is automated on request and performed without user intervention of your FRITZ! Box. Band steering works in both directions, ie, wireless devices depending on the situation be booked into each less congested alternative wireless band.

In determining the precise changeover between the WLAN bands any existing higher attenuation of radio waves through walls, objects, etc. included automatically, according to information provided by AVM for the start of the new laboratory version. If, for example, by increasing the distance of the wireless device to the FRITZ! Box to a too high (route) attenuation in the 5 GHz band, so that the WLAN device is possibly the most rich far stronger 2.4 GHz band switched.

However, the function requires a few key points that must be met. So the appliance box must be dual-band capability, the SSID on the FRITZ! At 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band identical. When delivered, this is indeed the case. WLAN devices are re-registered only directly to the FRITZ! Box to an alternative band by band steering on or, for repeater that is not so far.

Besides this function, there is the self of the port forwarding (UPNP / PCP) option per unit. Also DECT functions have been added, such as support for CAT-iq 2.0-capable handsets. Here one supports FRITZ! Box phone book, call history, MWI (calls and voice messages) and the Call Options (CLIP / CNIP, brokering 3 party conference etc.).

The new version FRITZ! Lab 6.69-41049 for the FRITZ! Box 7490 also fixes error, which can be very annoying sometimes. So in certain connection scenarios not automatically connecting to the Internet immediately after the FRITZ! OS update was possible. When it comes to WLAN you want to have increased stability, the LAN ports 1 to 4 were converted to power mode and now the WLAN only deactivated the WLAN timer on request, if no wireless network device longer active. This was not possible in the previous version.

As always you can find the current laboratory version here . And as always: Backup do not forget and remember with difficulties with the Internet, in using a laboratory version.
