Not enough control over the router in Tether app. They make all the advanced settings into subscription. I mean antivirus I can see making subscription, but I should at least be able to do advanced configuration on a device that I paid for. That said you can use the routers internal web interface. But that defeats the purpose of having an app. Maybe a one time fee to activate advanced configuration in the app.

This app is such trash. 99% of the time, it will show my router as a cloud device, despite the fact that I'm on the network 3 feet away from it. It constantly "loses" my extender, and the forward upgrade fails every time. Blocking clients from the network takes 15 minutes to complete, and unblocking them is a coin toss. Stick to the hardwire browser access.

The last two or three times I've tried to log in, it says the wrong password, it's the same damn password I've had forever. I don't want to factory reset my device just to redo the password. Why don't you have an option that says forgot password and go that route instead of having to reset the damn thing. Update, I had to uninstall and reinstall the app and then I was able to log in.
