AVM has with the FRITZ! Box 6590 Cable recently launched a powerful and multifunctional cable router that leaves little to be desired. If you want to set up a decent home network with various gadgets and not just cable internet and telephony, then the AVM FRITZ! Box 6590 Cable with WLAN, Gigabit LAN, DECT function and USB connections is wonderfully suitable. Here I would like to briefly introduce you to the cable modem with its technical details and functions. TL; DR: Order directly here.
The FRITZ! Box 6590 from AVM is an extensively equipped router that, due to the Elimination of "router compulsory" and other provider-specific requirements can easily be used for cable internet. In addition to LAN devices, you also supply the iPhone, MacBook, Smart TV and so on with the device via WLAN.
Here are the technical details / the data sheet of the power machine:
Of course, it is also important to know what you will get delivered to your home after ordering. Therefore, here is an insight into the scope of delivery of the AVM FRITZ! Box 6590 Cable WLAN AC + N Router:
As you know, there are only product presentations or recommendations here in the blog if you have had your own experience and / or very good reviews on Amazon. Now this FRITZ! Box currently only has 3,2 out of 5 stars (June 2017). This is due to three - with all due respect - pretty stupid reviews. One complains about a missing WPS button (which is on the front of the device ...), one writes straight away that he has not bought it, and a third complains that USB 2.0 is available although 3.1 was expected. Who can read has a clear advantage;)

The AVM FRITZ! Box 6590 Cable opens up a wide range of options, whether at home or in the office. If you have stable cable internet with constant power, then you can provide the whole family with it - streaming via computer and smart TV while surfing on smartphones and tablets ... you can make calls at the same time; one writes an email, the other connects devices such as printers and scanners and can then print over the network via PC, Mac, smartphone, etc. Et Cetera. I can't even imagine what else you can do with the part at the same time. (Of course there are limits somewhere, for example if several people want to play online and stream films at the same time. I am aware of that.);)
AVM FRITZ! Box 6590 Cable seems to me at the moment to be the ultimate FRITZ! Box for cable users who want to network themselves ideally at home or in the office. WLAN for computers, smartphones and tablets, internet also for films and games, USB for devices and storage devices, DOCSIS 3.0 and so on. Does that appeal to you? Or do you prefer to go to the AVM FRITZ! Box 7590 high-end, which you can currently also order for 269 euros? Feel free to leave a comment on the topic.
