Red Box Firmware V1.2 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of a new firmware, version 1.2, for the Red Box wireless router and bandwidth optimiser

The Red Box wireless router gives very easy integration of all communication devices from 3G, Wireless and satellite devices. Additionally it takes NMEA data and wirelessly repeats it. This makes it extremely easy to network all of these devices with no more effort than plugging them in and then connecting to the local wifi network!
