Always used Netgear router, I love this app! Restart it without leaving my chair! Had such issues until the app told me try another channel, world of difference.... Thank you for your easy to use interface, and this Router sets itself up. Plug it in.. easy, anyone can do it. Anyone!
Spoty operation. OpenDNS works only sometimes and can be defeated by a smart teen. QoS does not work correctly, even though you can change priority on devices in the PC router login, those don't stick, and the router seems to randomly assign priority. A much older version of this app worked much better with media, I could play my media from a NAS using this app, and send it to my SmartTV but can't do so now as the app only shows about 120 files from my library of about 700.
It's been a year. This router makes it so easy to set up and use parent controls to limit wireless access to the kids no matter what device they try to use. When it's bedtime, you just shut their device OFF. Thanks for helping parents keep control!!
Even with update and latest firmware, I'm unable to see connected devices in the network map logging in remotely. My router has the latest firmware for the nighthawk x4s and my app is the latest. Both places where you should be able to see connected devices, I cannot. I have logged out, back in, cleared cache, cleared data, checked router settings. I can do everything else but see the devices while logged in remotely. This was occurring with the .32, .36 and .40 version of firmware as well but it used to work at one point.
This app used to work fine but now it's garbage. Don't know what happened but this will be my last Netgear router. Google Nexus 6 UPDATE: I'VE CLEARED CACHES, RESTARTED PHONE, AND REINSTALLED APP BUT IT WON'T SHOW HUSBAND'S PIXEL PHONE OR OUR SONY TV. I CAN'T SAVE A NAME TO MY NEW PIXEL EITHER. AN OREO GLITCH? I'M UNINSTALLING. NETGEAR SHOULD BE BETTER THAN THIS! PIXEL 2 XL
This app used to work really well. However, after the most recent firmware update to my D6000 router, it will not allow me to login and constantly tells me that the data connection is busy. This gives the same result for devices running Android 4.2.2, 5.1 and 7.1.1. I've tried various fixes, such as power cycling the router and reinstalling the app, but with no effect. I bought the router a few months ago on the basis that the Genie app was available and easy to use. Ultimately, I can always use the browser to manage the router, but that's not really the point. A degree of software validation would be expected before release, or maybe it's a case of one hand not know what the other is doing. UPDATE 01/02/2018 Despite new firmware and Windows Genie software updates (both installed today), and an unanswered email to the developers, nothing has changed. It seems that "customer service", "fit-for-purpose" and "software validation" are not in NETGEAR's vocabulary. I should have bought a TP-LINK or Asus modem-router as I originally planned.
