Setting up my wifi was nice with the app, but I get an error message every time I run a speed test, some devices say connected via ethernet when that is clearly not the case, the signal bars next to devices is very inaccurate. I called about some of these issues months ago and was told there would be an update. None so far.
For months now when I try to log in from this app while connected to wifi, I get a message that the cloud service is not working. I have to use my phone's cellular data network to log in. This app has been updated a dozen times since then, but the problem persists.
Pretty useless unless you want to admire your previous settings. Why force us to use an app that doesn't do anything useful? 28/9/16 App erases previous settings for parental block when disengaging manual block. Really? Too much trouble to remember the previous settings? 10/2/17 App is much improved, finally can adjust parental controls without having to re enter all the settings
Being the "system administrator/network guy of the house" with 5 kids is amazing. The remote access gets the job well, although it would be nice to have 90-95% functionality from the app like being on the physical network, instead of just the main top 5 features, (personal preference). Still, the app gets 5 stars for ease of use and convience. I am dating my self here, but when I was "your" age (talking about kids nowadays), when I got in trouble, I was punished by not being able to play outside with friends.....Now it's, "I'm going to shut off your internet!" And I can do it from the house, or halfway around the country if I'm working. Haha, how times have changed. Now if you made it this far through my novel/review, again, great app!!
Unintuitive. It didn't work and provides no alternate paths to get things done. Now I've got to decide if I should return the modem because of this lousy app.
Great app in concept...but still a little buggy. I have a Linksys EA8500 router. I‘d love the Parental Controls to help manage my kiddo's screen time on his devices...if they actually worked. I've configured the time of day limit settings with this app for an Android smartphone, iPad, and Windows 10 laptop. Sometimes the time limits work, but more often than not, they don't. Frustrating.
