Are you on a notebook or a desktop?
What is the manufacturer?
What is the network software that is running on your PC other than Netgear's Genie?
Which version of Netgear Genie are you referring to - the browser accessed GUI or the standalone Genie application you must install?
The standalone application Genie loads a Daemon at boot which creates an issue with some other application that loads at boot as well. For me, it was a Dell network utility on my notebook. Once I disabled Dell's network utility Service, OR, uninstalled Netgear's standalone Genie application all was well.
