Love the performance of the router but the ability to edit and store device names flat doesn’t work. It’s too bad because this could be a great product w lots of kudos. Many of us like to control our kids time online.

It's definetely a memory leak.  Works great right after a reset, then stops after a few minutes/enough devices connect.

100% agreed Dubbbz. Absolute trash router and customer support. I’ve realized that Netgear’s focus is not experienced or heavy (many devices) users. One of the other issues I had with this router is that it was assigning duplicate IP addresses to devices which was causing a number of different issues. The OS for the router is trash, settings don’t save properly, it does whatever it wants (blocks and unblocks devices when it feels like it). I scrapped the router and bought Ubiquiti (I went with the Alien model) and have had no issues since. Another thing with the Netgear I never saw speeds above 700 Mbps. When I switched to the Ubiquiti AmpliFi Alien router I immediately got 800+ Mbps. I would highly recommend switching to another router.

The nighthawk apps update supposedly fixed this issue but it didn't for me. I am hoping with the new software coming up it will fix this issue and hopefully everything else.
