Those who want to store as little data as possible for data protection reasons - DSGVO is the keyword - can define an appropriate log file format. This anonymizes both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. Unfortunately, no new format can be defined for the error logs - however, a legitimate interest for smooth operation can be assumed here even with a sufficiently short storage period. The ...

AVM brings mesh function

Now that Google is launching its Wifi system in Germany, AVM has "countered" with a lab firmware. If you install the lab firmware 6.88 BETA (download on the AVM website), the network overview changes - a Fritz!Repeater 1750E that is also present in the network automatically gets an update as well.

Wi-Fi on planes is still a niche market, with only a few airlines offering this service. Norwegian already offers this service for all passengers on many connections.
