Tips for Using New NETGEAR Community Pages
Our new Community pages are designed to be intuitive, responsive, and work on your mobile devices. We also now have a way to feature content and help alert you to new articles, updates, and products. These changes may make it a little tricky to find parts of the site you used to visit often. Here are some tips on how to use the new NETGEAR Community pages effectively. We do understand that there are a few issues with the new pages and if you encounter any, please visit our Feedback and survey threads to alert us, or make suggestions.

To start with.. The font in the threads is way too light. The heading is bold, which is good. I am using a 55 inch monitor and I'm straining.. (No, I'm not blind)..
