A little sluggish at times selecting an option takes a good few seconds to register or switch screens, but overall very thorough and enables you to see what's on the network even though I use Fing for that normally, this allows me to change preferences on the router. App could use a ? Mark beside the different band choices in particular why it lists band a with c as incompatible, which seems odd considering the router (and my separate modem say AC on the boxes) namsayin? I look forward to update

New review for 2022. When the app works it's sort of ok. Today it made me log in again, then made me change my password. Sat on applying changes screen for over 10 minutes and nothing. Restarted the app and had to do it all over again only to end up with the same results. Getting fed up with all the problems the app and router have every 2 or 3 months. Only thing that helps a couple times a year is a master reset of the router and setting up with a connected pc.

Great router. Been using this 802.11.AX for over a year and love that I can access it from anywhere and do anything I need. Needs to identify who is the maker of a MAC address and possibly the device. Needs to be able to easily disconnect devices from the list of devices and should show MAC underneath the title of the device on the device list.
