Also note that compatibility mode forces a 100mbps throttle cap if you read the material. So why have ultra fast router and then software that throttles speed?

Just bought and set up my RBR750. I could not believe it doesn’t have Parental Controls or a way to use Circle 1st Gen. Spent $500 so that I could get the best of both worlds, but nope. Great performance but not worth $500 for just a router. Over a year of complaints and silence or false promises from NG. Unfortunately I will be returning it tomorrow and get something with decent Parental Control.

Con job on these RBR750s. Plasters parental controls all over the site but then isn’t here. Can we get a timeline or should I just return?

Netgear isn't responding to this robust amount of traffic on the issue. I'm returing the device, the rudamentary software and app management options aren't acceptable for a $500 system.

Last August Netgear told me that parental controls were on the way. I'm starting to think they lied to me. Bought mine at Costco. So may go ahead and return them. Netgear does your view this issue as important. Their competition does. Fairly simple equation there.

Folks, if I can offer some advice, Amazon has a 3 band mesh router with more capabilities like parental controls and it's in the same price range. Return your Netgear if you can, it's not worth going against the grain here. Also, if you can't return it, start calling them, they are obviously not monitoring this thread, or maybe they don't care, but a call will probably get you further.
Finally, my message to Netgear, who do you think buys a router that covers a 7000 Sq foot home? A single guy in an apartment or a family man/woman with a big house? The lack of parental controls is a shame and a total disregard to your target audience. I still have this product in a box in the attic, if the community supports it, I can post a video in the social channels destroying the router and antennas like in the Office Space movie, maybe then they'll take notice.

I agree with you completly. $500 router and no parent control. I can not believe it.... I'm returning it back to Costco tomorrow. NETGEAR if you are reading this, get the damn parent control on the wifi router. We all have grown up now and have kids.

Re: Why No Circle for RBR750 or other Wifi6 Routers??

Well Now I feel like a real fool for trusting Netgear. I just purchased my Orbi Mesh RBR750 set up and worked for a few days to get all my devices and smarthome back online only to find I cannot use Circle on this device. Yes Netgear I did get the Survey on Circle and your proposed new parental tools, however that does me no good now! Very Disappointed. I have been using Netgear devices, routers and cable odems instead of the cable Co stuff for years and have enjoyed pretty good sucess. My Nighthawk router 5G radio was staring to go and I did my homework on a replacement. The Mesh network and speeds are wonderful, but we have 3 Children of various ages and I need to control their devices.  Might just have to dump my Netgear devices and go back to the drawing board or even worse use the Cable Co stuff. It allows device control at least.  Let's go Netgear get it together.
