Nighthawk cannot show wired connected device

R6400 firmware: 1.0.1.46

Nighthawk version  2.3.6.617

 

 

In my fomer app , Nergear Genie allows me to reach the wired + connected device, such as my television. I can disable the connectivity between that tv and the router.

 

In the forced update to nighthawk , it does only show wifi connected device.

 

 

1. How can I stop the connection via Nighthawk 

 

Model: R6400|AC1750 Smart WiFi Router

Re: Nighthawk cannot show wired connected device

The Nighthawk App and the compatibility with all routers seems to be a big can of worms, issues wherever we are looking for.  That's a new one, and I like to add it to the Nighthawk App Bug thread -> https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-App/BUG-REPORT-Speed-Test-Information-Home-Screen-Wrong-S...

 

For now there is no other way but using either the desktop Genie (Windows or MacOS), or the router Genie Web reachable on the local [W]LAN on http://routerlogin.net/

The Nightwhawl is a mess. Cam metgear switch back "Netgear Genie" ?4

 

What is the main cause that Genie is disabled ?

Re: Nighthawk cannot show wired connected device

Would love to hear an answer from Netgear, too. 

Let's guess: Marketing, standardisation (sigh....), getting rid of dated code, getting rid of features like file transfer, UPnP AV/DLNA server (on Windows/MacOS), ...
