Just been looking at billion 8900ax-2400.

I only use 2.4ghz to be honest.

Seems good if expensive £249 Amazon.

How much!! :o
I've never spent more than £25 on a router (second-hand of course). :-[

I've tested my Friztbox 3490 just out of curiosity, it can read both NTFS and Fat32, I used the same memory stick with lots of files and folders on it. Tried Fat32 then converted the stick to NTFS.
I can't test for use in any apple system as I don't own any.
This test was done under Windows10 1709 latest build

Thanks for testing. I like the idea of the fritz box stuff but Iíve read too many people having issues with them.

Could you write to an NTFS partition though?
Reading and writing are two different things.
eXFat may be a better format for compatibility.

The problem is after windows 10 1709 was released, I think, it removed smb v1 support.

I believe you can add smb v1 back to Windows 10 if you want. It's only turned off by default.

Yes I can write to the vr900 ntfs usb.

I know I can add support back in. Itís just annoying having to go back to google every time I install win 10 on a machine to find the fix.

This issue should be fixed by tplink to be honest. As itís a security exploit.

Just looking at the 7590 and wondering. What worries me is the lack of suppliers in the UK. Itís hard enough to get decent support for known brands.

@Deathstar
I used a linux (Lubuntu 16.04) system to write to the stick formatted in NTFS.

Got a response from avm to my questions, not impressed:

thank you very much for your inquiry and interest in
AVM products. 

Has the poor usb3 file transfer issue been fixed yet?

-> It's not a bug - it's a feature.

Can the gigabit wan port be configured as a standard gigabit lan port. As I donít have use of wan port but would find an extra lan port useful.

-> In DSL mode, the WAN port is a LAN port. It is (currently) not displayed in the GUI.

What chipset does the modem part use?

-> The best ;)

We hope this response is useful and wish you much joy
with AVM FRITZ! products. Your comments and questions
are always welcome.
