Glad I'm not the only one having issues. As of November, and with the most recent update. The app can't find my router whether I am on the network or with "access anywhere". I have logged out and back in, reinstalled the app, triple checked settings on the routers admin controls (I can log into the router via a web browser with no issues) but nothing seems to be working inside the app. Thank God it wasn't just me, please fix.

C'mon Netgear... Seriously?? The app, when it works it's ok. Barbones options, which may be all that you need. For whatever reason, now the app will no longer let me log into my device. Reboot the router, the phone, clear all the data and cache, oh, factory reset the router for good measure and, no. I think the company is large enough to have an ample team to handle such small tasks like make an app that accesses your router. I'm just wasting space at this point.

Not a fan of this app, can't control near as much as you can in the browser based app, and router setups are much more difficult because it's basically required. if it's going to be a required app can it at least have all options? Can't even setup without hooking to internet which may not be a problem for some but I was just trying to set up a wireless bridge. shouldn't have to setup twice inside to put in the garage
