The New version caused my router to lock up and reboot when I was the only one on it. Takes 3x longer to log on. The interface is better looking but does not work. After having major security issues still with your routers im done this 300$ paper weight its going in the closet Asus or linksys here I come. Update After new update worked great for 2 days now I have to reboot router to log back in and app does not stay connected the router wrks just fine no issues.
Useful for management. Turbo transfer does not work for photos and videos stored in gallery. Does not allow file selection. 😣 Newer version displays wrong mac ids. Does not allow to rename device name on mobile device running genie. Removing wifi analytics is a bad idea. Shows repeaters twice as wired and on wifi. Update 1 The latest version allows renaming the device but does not allow device type to changed through netgear extender. Update 2 Unable access wifi extender route map. Default user ID and password dont work. Update 2 problem resolved through extender reset to factory values. Update 3 Device type option is not available for the device running genie and when connected through wifi extender ex6120 Update 4 Thanks for reintroducing wifi analytics. It would be nice if graphs are zoomable as the numbers are too tiny to read on x and y axes
It used to be useful but now after updates it is unusable. Especially traffic metre up down is in mess. No open DNS! Remote access, is back but rest is missing . Why fix that it is not broken???
A longstanding bug plus some undesirable features have been dealt with which is great. Curiously WiFi analytics have returned after they were sensibly moved to a dedicated app. They are all about the client device running the app so do not belong in a router management app. It is about time Genie on both the router web interface and the app started exploiting the device names that were created when assigning fixed IP addresses when it comes to showing connected devices.
Bring back link rate for devices. Why remove features?? Should be improving.. ==update== I give five stars because the app is slowly improving; I personally held off upgrading until now... the link rate for each device is back! Thank you for listening; improving the app with each update. Much respect.
I liked the old version much better. This says login failed when I put the exact info that I use for the web version. I guess I'll have to Uninstall...too bad
1.Reintroduces the WiFi Analytics feature (You must allow the app to access your device’s location in order to use this feature.)
2.Displays the link rate for each device in network map
3.Improves the login flow – Skips the NETGEAR account login by default. The genie app now directly takes you to the dashboard without logging in. You can log in to your NETGEAR account for remote access from the dashboard.
4. Fixes the login issue
5. Fixes the crash issues
6. Fixes the typo issues
