Works as intended, but it doesn't seem to have a layout for advanced users, or at least I haven't found it yet. There is some nesting as well so finding where you need to go can sometimes be tricky. Like, I needed to change the security of the WiFi Guest network, and it appears that you select the option that makes you think youre simply changing the name, but the security drop-down was hidden in there. Small stuff like that could be improved I think. May just be an imo thing though.

This app is garbage. It assumes when you run it that you are setting up a new SURFboard max system. It doesn't detect if you already have a SURFboard max system set up and just take you to the utilities. You would think that would be the first thing it asks you when you run it. Instead, the app gets hung up with trying to connect to the hub unit with bluetooth to set it up. All I want are utilities to test the speed and reconfigure, if necessary. Used to be able to do that with the now obsolete SURFboard max app.

First thing this app did is changed my router admin password to a 9 char long string which is weaker than I already had set. It did it without even asking me, which is really bad. I see this new password in the app. Now the worst part is this password doesn't work and I'm essentially blocked from controlling my router via web UI. I still can use the app, but can't do that from a laptop or desktop. Beware you can be locked out of your router admin access. Now I'm forced to do factory reset.
