AVM has released new beta firmware for two of its Fritzbox Fon routers, the WLAN 7270 and WLAN 7570 VDSL, making them IPv6 capable. The Fritzbox Fon is an ADSL modem, router and access point in one, and also has extensive VoIP capabilities. The device also has a USB connection, with which a printer or external storage capacity can be shared on the network.

This lab firmware is a beta version. We tested the software in standard environments before making it available to the public, but it may still result in malfunctions. AVM will not be liable for any damages that arise from the use of the lab version.
You can restore the official firmware to the FRITZ!Box at any time. Attention: Doing so will discard all of your personal settings. Be sure to take note of the instructions for saving the current settings of your FRITZ!Box before you download the lab firmware.
