useless app there is almost nothing in the app. I find better use off my pc even my phone when it comes to changing or viewing anything wifi/internet related. you definitely can't do anything useful on the app even though they claim you can... I end up having to go to the router log in url for stuff that should be accessible through the app. it would be a lot more convenient and nice to see some upgrades to the app. kinda sad when you can download third party apps that offer more control.

Worst app ever. Every time I try to run it, it wants to set up from scratch like I had just installed it from the first time. Then, I finally get to where it is "connected" to the router, but then it hangs forever trying to "detect" it. Only option offered is to blow all my router settings away and start with factory defaults which I am not going to do because I can manage the router just fine through the web interface. Ive cleared cache, data, uninstall/reinstall, total waste of time.

If you are a techy and are looking for a router. Skip the nighthawk. App works well. But there are almost no settings you can tweak. You don't get any control, you cant change port forwarding, you can't chsnge ANYTHING. Not Happy, will be returning. And why do i have hundreds if tracking and data gathering attempts from Optimizely and Urban Airship. Why is it necessary for them to use over 15 different points of information on me!? Plus app is useless for troubleshooting, while also advertising
