Nighthawk App

I am running 2 routers in my house they each have their own connection. I use the nighthawk app for my RAX200 router to monitor it. I was wondering if their is a way I can monitor my R8500 router from the same app. If it can be done can somebody tell me how.

Model: RAX200|Nighthawk Tri-band AX12 12-Stream Wi-Fi 6 Router

Re: Nighthawk App

Connect the mobile device to the R8500 routers wifi and then open the app, log in using the R8500s admin and admin password set on the router.

Investigate Anywhere Access. (It used to be called Remote Access.)

I use it to monitor two routers on two separate acounts. It uses the Netgear Cloud as an intermediary.
