If you have new clients like Intel 9260 you can even enable 160MHz bandwith which will double WiFi speed on intranet (o/c you still stay limited to internet by your line).
I know RJ11 and RJ45 are fully compatible! Though some will complain that outer pins may be bent up, but usually they are elastically enough to go down again, and WTF we dont need them except you have ISDN instead of POTS and then you have to use RJ45 anyway.
Yes German AVM programmers do a good job, others in the world would or could do the same. But NOT Chinese and all other consumer products nowadays will come from there
PS: You should go out for a walk and then do “something even better” too.

Did some testing on NAS functionality on my 7590 with old external 2,5″ 500GB HDD on USB port and formated with ext4 as NTFS will serve only about half speeds. Large HDD not tested but reported to work too, partitions limited to 4TB (I personally wont use that).
Working quite reliable for me with good enough speeds for our needs (music and video streaming and little backup or file sharing).
I tested large files with 67GB data as well as many 171000 files filling disk and all ok.
Using SMB for file transfer, FTP working but much slower for small files (thought it should be faster). PC connected over LAN, Wifi (link speed 800Mb/s) will slower read and write ~20%.
USB3.0 isn’t much faster than 2.0 with my HDD, maybe SSD could get little more, so in future I will use USB2.0 (green mode) only to keep my 2.4GHz Wifi perfect for backhaul to remote mesh-node.
Here my results:
large file read/write: 55/22 MB/s
small files (1kB) read and write same: 1850 files per minute or 31/s
file mix 10GB in 10000 files read/write completed in: 10/15 min thats about 17/12 MB/s
Retested with smaller files read/write in USB2.0 – USB3.0 mode on HDD:
single 1GB file: 27/52s – 21/50s
1000x 1kB files: 44/38s – 43/37s
Mix 1GB file and 1000x 1k files: 69/88s – 64/85s
Result did prove with mix-test as it is about summarized times of the 2 single test.
USB3.0 will be noticeably faster only for reading large files.
Would be interesting to see how it could be improved using a SSD.

Hi there, can someone confirm whether the 7582 can be used in bridge mode?
I’m following this on eBay and it seems it supports Annex A, so it should work in the UK…

The Fritz!Box 7582 supports PPPoE Passthrough which is almost like bridge mode according to the sales pitch.
I have used PPPoE Passthrough on my Fritz!Box 3490 and it worked well, (I am with BT) but unsure if used with SKY as they use a system known as MER which is a dhcp request with option 60,61 for PPPoE.
If you are a SKY customer, just have to ensure your router supports SKY setup etc. and hope the Fritz!box when set-up in PPPoE Passthrough mode will allow (pass on) the DHCP request with option 60, 61 to be handled by the router ? (not tried it myself)
Hopefully @Grisu can advise as I believe he has/had the 7582

Thanks and yes I’m with Sky and I use an R7000 with FreshTomato which handles DHCP 61… Just thinking to upgrade my ZyXEL modem and I was looking at some new G.fast ready modem…December 2, 2019 at 10:04 pm #5179UK SentinelModerator
Nice idea, do you know what type of cabinet/dslam you connect to (ECI/Huawei) as ECI cabs do not support G.fast.
Also, G.fast only works upto a range/distance of 300-400m from Cab ?

ECI cabinet, unfortunately… Sky is now offering in my area Ultrafast Internet up to 145Mb/s and I believe I read is on G.fast, otherwise is it 35b ?December 3, 2019 at 8:45 am #5181UK SentinelModerator

Interesting, SKy are known for over stating there service availability, but I suppose the ECI DLSAM/Cab issue could have been fixed (thank goodness)
Let us know how your SKY order progresses as this could be good news for others whom are looking for G.fast on ECI cabs

Sorry, cant help with your question about Sky if it could work.
But to be honost I rather dont suppose that it is supported.
There is no bridge mode, but you can leave DSL credentials empty and allow other devices to establish their own connection.
Here somebody did it, you would have to translate: https://www.ip-phone-forum.de/threads/7590-als-reines-modem-nutzen.296201/post-2268486December 3, 2019 at 10:23 pm #5197hushcodenParticipant
Thanks all… After a thorough (Internet) search, my understanding is that PPPoE passthrough is NOT bridge mode, so I will go with something else… perhaps a ZyXEL XMG3927 or Draytek Vigor 166, although for the latter there is no news on when it will be available…December 8, 2019 at 8:34 pm #5276Mrk26Participant
Guys how good is wifi on 7590, considering to buy one, but I need router with decent wifi.December 8, 2019 at 9:35 pm #5277UK SentinelModerator

Alas the Fritz!Box 7590 has internal aerials and from review in below link does not perform as well as external aerials over longer distances.
But the 7590 does support wifi meshing and 4×4 MU-MIMO and the hardware build quality and firmware is first class.
I seem to remember they may have issues around IPTV, but I could be wrong and does not support SKY ISP connections (not relevant to you) ?
BTW – Tomorrow, I will plug in my DSL-AC88U to my Draytek 130 modem and see if I can make the DSL-AC88U act as a router only ;-)

You could even buy external antennas from frixtender (easy to install, but personally never used them to tell more about): https://frixtender.de/kompatibilitaet-der-fritzbox-7590/
Frixtender offers different antennas for different usage, the longer the more directional (less up and down and more horizontal). S=small, M=medium, L=large, P=panel (focussed to one direction ~45° instead of 360°)
Dont expect too much from external antennas, more eye catcher than worth it.
I had lot of Wifi-troubles with Asus 68U and 86U and now all ok with 7590. Coverage will be about the same as radio power is limited in EU and all units sold in EU (GB isn’t a separated region).

Frixtender – That’s really cool, never seen these before, they I assume by installing them, and opening up the Fritz!Box will void warranty, but a great idea for those who do not mind hands on improvements

It’s done without damage AFAIK, so no warrenty problem as you can remove it before return.
There are no broken stickers and quite easy to open.
