The Fritz Box Fon WLAN models assigned to category “wireless router” is actually not entirely correct. For who one of these miracle box manufacturer AVM Fritz Box zulegt to get several devices at once: DSL modem, wireless router, PBX (Landline, ISDN, VoIP), DECT base station, media / print server – and with the new model 7390 finally also some features that were previously only found in unfortunately the competition?.

The first new feature: the AVM Fritz Box device finally has a 4-port Gigabit switch integrated, which provides also for fast transfers via LAN cable between the PC and network hard drive (NAS). In almost all devices Gbit ports are already available by default, and a router with the slow “fast” Ethernet switch slows the throughput significantly

The second new feature is the integrated dual-band wireless-n, the same compounds in the 2.4 GHz band (802.11n/g/b) and in the 5 GHz band (802.11n / a) permits. At the previous model 7270 you had to choose one of the two frequency bands – and locked out all of the clients who send in the other band. Consistent is the fact that AVM his new model also now been given a second USB 2.0 host. This saves a lot of users who want to connect, for example, a USB printer and external storage as a NAS to the Fritz! Box, otherwise the necessary USB hub.

Fortunately goes AVM in his new Fritz! 7390 not compromise what safety and user-friendliness are concerned. The interior of the device is achieved with the help of a poster and a CD installation wizard immediately. On first contact with the Web inter? Surface of the Fritz! Box, you are prompted for a password for the award. The WLAN is each box individually using WPA/WPA2.


Even within the user interface are different wizards to set various functions. Generous status information, often illustrated with graphics, inform the user at a glance via DSL, wireless, or VoIP DECT connections. The integrated (UPnP) media server attached disk prepares content for media clients on the home network. Even a remote access to the box via Dyn DNS can be set up.

WLAN data throughput (net), we have been testing with a dual-band adapter from Cisco Linksys by with WPA2 encryption enabled. In the 2.4 GHz band, we determined here? Brisk 74 Mbit / s in the 5 GHz band to 44 Mbit / s the power consumption of the box during operation is about 9 watts.

CONCLUSION: The 7390 already has everything you could want for the home network. AVM will extend the functionality via firmware update safely
