app is useless. it hinders an easy setup by trying to make it idiot proof. it's a real shame too because my wrt-3200acm works like a champ. when i flash DD-WRT to it app becomes more worthless. why not just let chrome mobile browser access the router the old fashioned way 1xx.1xx.1.1?
The idea that I need to use this app annoys me, as I will never use the idiotic cloud functions. Also, the parental controls will immediately switch to all day, then are correct when I delete the original schedule. If you're going to force me to use an app, make it function properly the first time round, don't make it a pain to use.
Fair enough: trouble when updated 2.3.2 version: ⚛ can't login ("invalid account info.") ⚛ after restart router device..try login and got connection issue. ⚛ been a while.. And voila.. Login success ✌ 😁 but smartwifi cloud service down temporary.
I like this app for the most part. Having it on my phone is nice for setup and monitoring. Only being able to add 3 devices for priority isn't the greatest! One thing I found, why does it keep moving my cell to the 2.4 connection with slower speeds, plus I have my cell on priority as well. You're kinda stuck with the app though, if you get this router.
It sucks. ... It only works when connected to the cloud server. Ability to manage wireless connectivity, guest access and administration is impossible without cloud access. Without cloud access it's useless. Cloud server seems to drop frequently. I can't even type in the IP address of router to access directly. I keep getting redirected to the cloud based app. The real tragedy is the $300 EA9500 router is great. Unfortunately, this crappy app and it's implementation severely degrades it. And I absolutely love spending 2 hours with the BS troubleshooting to arrive at the reality it's the server... which was obvious in the first few seconds.
If you're downloading this app to control your router, stop now and return your router. You've bought a product that is controlled from the cloud, meaning you don't have direct control over your own product. There are better ways. I tried, but continued to get login errors while connected to my router with a solid internet connection. It takes me to a troubleshooting page that shows you how to plug your router into your modem. You don't have a local login portal.
