changed from Asus (with many problems) to all AVM-mesh solution last months.
I had 2 problems and some suggestions to them.
And what shall I say, they did it and with last beta firmwares everything is running like I could not imagine before, stable and nothing to criticize.
Got a huge fan of AVM with my network now.
These beta 6754x can be found here (go folders up and down): http://ftp.avm.de/fritzbox/beta/international/
Have this config:
1x 7590 as master DSL-modem router
2x 7582 as mesh-node via LAN (cant be configured as wifi-node)
1x 7590 on wifi connected to one of the 7582
My problems had been:
guest-wifi clients got no IP
band steering and node steering not working well
outcalls from far 7590 did suppress calling number
Now all working very well!!!
Further improvements or nice to have I have seen and using:
mesh-overview showing how nodes are connected and all their clients.
network can be permanently sorted by IP and MAC shown all the time
phonebook from master on nodes selectable
LED turned off optional
easy changeback to last firmware
DSL about 1% faster on my line (not much but reality and stable)
2,4G Wifi-node upped from 120 to 160Mb/s max. connection speed on same locations
Just found that they released a new 7.10 for some devices, looking on forward when they are published for international versions!April 9, 2019 at 10:08 am #2644
Thanks for update/news @Grisu, will be good when AVM release beta for the 3490 (international) as this is very popular modem/router in UK

got new beta firmware to update only for 7590 (nothing for 7582): FRITZ!OS: 07.08-67855 BETA
Get your fingers off!
Not worth, many problems now, lot of sync-loss and then even mesh loosing nodes.
DSL-driver did not change to previous beta and using older DSL-driver dont help too.
Will have to report to AVM.
I know, never touch a running system, have been too curious as last beta solved much for me …April 17, 2019 at 5:35 pm #2669

Lessons learnt, always get somebody else to try first ;-)
Thanks for news.

seems I blamed beta firmware too early because of timely exakt match.
Neighbour got same problems since I have them, so its not the modem or firmware, he uses different brand!April 27, 2019 at 6:23 pm #2908
You also had Mesh problems, was this not firmware related, ??

Mesh loss seems to be related to sync loss (dont know why).
Not all the time, but with that many resyncs I had and sometimes manual reboot master router once (or twice) it lost the Wifi-node and didnt reconnect.
Had to reboot node and all well again.
But never happened again last 2 weeks, somehow stabilized now (still some few sync-loss a day).
Today even 24h up with no CRC or sync, line coming back usable?April 27, 2019 at 7:53 pm #2912
I see, is it wet/cold where you are, as you say, neighbour has same issues, most interesting, is your Exchange/DSLAM Broadcom?

yes broadcom, have line problems since ever (>10 years) with old ADSL 4MB/s and even now with >250 v-plus.
Thought its related to wet weather (often seen some relation), but last month nothing, no rain, not cold.
It comes some days/a week or longer, then some month ok – I gave up. There must be some mystical radiation in our area. But they never found anything. Even more interesting, my neighbour gets only 200Mb/s fluctuating with an about 100m (!!!) shorter line when I get upto 285 with 7590.
His line goes underground (only last 10m to his house over the street), while mine comes up at his outlet too going aerial to me (total about 270m long). How can be radiation on his line almost under the earth?April 28, 2019 at 9:02 am #2914
Can you post your DSL Stats page from the Fritz!Box, just so we can have a look, probable nothing we can do, but it is interesting to look at ;-)

for your ease I changed to English, sh**, initiates a reboot.
Dont know what its good for but here you are (correct page?).

Thanks, a Nokia DSLAM, never seen one up-close, are your DSL lines underground?, best thing to sort out your issues is to revers a lorry over DSLAM and they put in new one with updated line/aggregation cards ;-)

they changed a lot of cards last year because of my troubles. DSLAM sits in the green, you would need a digger to get there. maybe a bad underground connector where it turns into my street, but digging would be >8k€, they wont do if it is not very claer thats the cause.
Underground: yes, but only from DSLAM to this neighbour as he needed many lines years ago for his business.April 28, 2019 at 6:02 pm #2924
Your Fritz!Box 7590 has the GRX550 (Lantiq / Intel) CPU, so should work well on difficult lines. given AVM are so good with their modem/router combination routers, if the 7590 does not work well, then I think nothing else is better to use ;-(

Since 4 days up now except when I changed language twice and it rebooted.
But what would you think if your line is up for average a week since summer, then you make an update to a new beta and from next day on you get >>10 sync a day, not usable anymore? Everyone has to assume its the firmware. Especially if you read in other forums that some others having sync problems too with newer betas in combination with some broadcom DSLAM running on newer firmware releases too.
Now I am quite sure its again my line, nothing wrong with router DSL firmware.
