Circle for RBR850

Is there an estimate as to when Circle will be available for the RBR850 system?

Thanks for posting that question - I also want to get Circle on my AX6000 RBR850.  I am very disappointed that this router system does not provide Circle services.

I have seen posts asking for this feature since I purchased the RBK852 well over a year ago. Why has this not yet been put on a Roadmap? Where can these type of requests be submitted? I don't think putting this in the community page is getting the attention that is needed. There are no parental controls avaiable on this model especially for the price for this Wifi System.

Add me to the list of users looking for Circle app to be natively supported on an Orbi Router RBR850.   I would think a $700 product like this would have parental controls.

What do we need to do to get Netgear to event comment or look at putting this on a road map. This very disappointing as there is no action from Netgear.

 

I can't even choose the correct model in the Model section of this comment.

+1 from me. Why is this basic functionality not available for such a "premium" device?

The RBK850 is really starting to feel like a step backwards from my RBK50. Such a shame and totally unnecessary.

Hello NETGEAR Community,

 

Thanks for expressing interest in a Parental Controls service from NETGEAR. We are excited to share that we have been working on a new and improved NETGEAR Smart Parental Controls solution for the Orbi RBK750 and RBK850 Series and are aiming to have it ready for launch in the next few months! Please stay tuned for an update from us.

Re: Circle for RBR850

Upcoming months? How can I block my smarthome accesories in the meantime? TRied everything from pause/resume to restricting full access and can still access it. Even turned UPNP off.

 

Please assist.

Try access controls?

Acces controls limits the internal link, not external.

"Have you tried the Orbi web interface, Advanced Tab, Security Menu "Block Services"?

Set up one block for "Any" services, ports 1-65535 on the IP address of that device. and make the Schedule?"
