I've always found the FB meter runs about 10% ahead of IDNet's recorded usage, which at least is the helpful way round. The apparent latest beta firmware improvement in the the usage recording through a LAN1 connection hasn't made any noticeable difference for me.

A 'minor' firmware update v. 84.05.20 has been released for the Fritz!Box 7390:

EDIT:  I have just checked and the update is not yet downloadable from the Firmware Update in the FB - nor can it be downloaded from Fritz AVM. Our cousins 'down under' seem to have access via a FTP link.

Important details regarding this update:

[1] Automatic priorisation of Voice data using FRITZ!App phone requires at least version 1.6.0 for iOS and 1.56 for Android.

[2] Automatic synchronisation of the WLAN-night-settings will require an upcoming update of the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater software.

[3] With the current IPv6-implementation AVM already follows the current IETF-suggestion, to not establish a 6to4-tunnel automatically, as long as the Internet provider does not support IPv6 natively.
Please explicitly configure 6to4 as connection type if you wish to use 6to4 for your IPv6 connection.

[4] The energy consumption values have been recalibrated in this release. Due to this they will differ from the displayed valued of the former release version.

[5] To be able to use all new DECT features, please make sure to also update the firmware of your FRITZ!Fon to the latest available version.

Just getting now from your linky Ardua, thanks

Anyone using this latest version 84-05-20 on an existing VDSL2 (FTTC) connection and who is seeing some benefit, please let us know; before I bother!  :whistle:

Had at least four instances of it clearing connection since I put it on, if I get many more I'll be going back to beta
