Yep I agree. All I want to be able to do is get my router back in action. But for that price! Cost more than my bloody Asus router.

Update, I'm still hunting for a g.fast modem. I've seen zero updates and there is no stock from places like alibaba.  Has anyone else seen any updates relating to the release of G.fast modems in the UK?

I just got G.Fast and am struggling with there being no bridge mode option on the SmartHub modem provided. I have my own pfsense router and 3 unifi AP's around the house. Double NAT is causing issues with pfsense. The thought of disabling pfsense NAT and trying to do it with the BT Router doesn't sit comfortable with me.

I've started to create a spreadsheet of all G.Fast Modems and availability. It's not good, the only one I can find available right now is the ASUS DSL-AC88U.

I contacted a Zisa on Alibaba to buy the MT992/Zisa G100, but they are out of stock for 3-6 months. He said they have to wait till an ISP puts in a big order of about 5000 modems, then they can add our little orders to it. But he said they do have in stock the Zisa G800 modem/router which is currently being supplied by a Swiss ISP. Specification here. Only problem is I'd have to buy 10 and sell on the remainder.

I know I won't be the only one with this issue so am happy to try to sell on 9, but I'm not sure if this is what people want. Personally I just want a simple small cheap but reliable modem, I don't need the router part. Also to make it worth the effort I'd probably have to buy more than 10. I doubt people would want to pay close to £200 for this router/modem once shipping/VAT is added.

My current thoughts are to just buy the ASUS and wait for these modems below to actually become available. I am also going to call BT today and see if they will swap their Smart Hub for a business one which I've read elsewhere does have the bridging modem option, but I don't have much hope they will agree to that.

I'd be interested on your thoughts on the spec of the Zisa G800 and whether it is worth importing it.

This is a work in progress below just to record my research. I'm not sure if the bottom ones are compatible, but saw them mentioned on the Swisscom web site.

The XMG3927-B50A can be found for under £150 brand new here in the UK if you know where to look. :P

Yes, I know I'm not being very helpful. The place I know which is "selling" it isn't doing so officially yet; not listed on the store, unlikely to be stocking it yet - though can order in.
