In cooperation with Pokipsie Network and deviceduck.ch we are currently testing various products from German networking specialist AVM – including the Fritz!Box 7490 which according to the company is good for “complete high-speed home networking”. Before we get to our final and in-depth review (to be published in the coming weeks) I’d like to give you a quick overview of the features supported by this Fritz!Box model.
Here’s what’s in the box
Now before checking out the various features, I’d like to briefly show you what is included in the box. Apart from the Fritz!Box 7490 system you’ll find…
