I see Snap is offering the 7340 with the new UFB plans. Since the 7390 appears to offer more Ethernet ports it is a better fit with my needs. Any idea when/if this is coming in?

Can you just add a switch?
I have a small gigabit switch added to mine and it works great

Sure, I could, but since the 7390 has been out for awhile now I'd rather know when/how I can get one. Why use older tech if you don't have to?

Update: I have spoken to Snap and there are no plans to offer the 4-port 7390 at this stage.

Thanks for the update.

I actually think if they are only 100Mbit ports then 2 is enough anyway. I would rather get a device that's slightly cheaper so I can put the savings toward my own gigabit switch.

You can get a new 5 ~ 8 port gigabit switch for $50~$100 anyway. A 5 to 8 port 10/100 switch will be a lot less than that.

They are two gigabit ports, I just run a 5 port dlink green switch off it without any issues. 
Bottlenecking isn't an issue obviously.

Ahh. Never seen that before.. I wonder what the reason is. I only need 4 ports so actually a 4 port gigabit switch built in would have been ideal for me.

Yeah, me too. I got rid of my switches after changing to a 4-port router so don't relish the idea of having to go back to buying and using switches again. Especially since there is already a Fritz!Box with 4 ports (just not available anywhere in NZ it seems).

The 7390s won't be telepermited. 

You could probably import it from Australia but be in for a hefty fine if it caused damage to the ISAMs / network hardware here.

Where is your old 4 port router?  Just use that and turn off dhcp another 4 ports spare done.

Any new device into the country has to be accredited or telepermited by Chorus / Telecom. 

See the bottom of your current modem and it should have the greens sticker with the tick. 
From memory it costs some horrendous amount to get them telepermited.

About $15000 I believe but it would really just be a formality if the 7340 has it so if you want to import one from Australia it would work without issue as far as I can see.

Yeah but its about not blowing up the network which I dont think that would happen I think I would just use an old swich or 4 port modem because it wont be cheap.
