Parental Control Router Selection

I recently purchased a Nighthawk AC2100 / R7200 for home use.  After purchase, I learned this model doesn't have parental controls.  I did find the models, which do offer this feature but have no idea which is best for my needs.


Typically, 12-15 devices are connected to the router.  Home 2000 sq ft.  Work from home while people stream and play on gaming system.  Parental controls a must.


what are your recommendations?

Re: Parental Control Router Selection

First check if you want parental controls or the more powerful, and paid for, Circle.


Which NETGEAR routers support Circle Smart Parental Controls? | Answer | NETGEAR Support


My next move would be to find a device that meets my needs, and budget, and then look to see if it supports whatever you choose for the controls.


Try plugging your needs into the filters on the product pages:


Wireless Routers for Home | NETGEAR




Orbi: Whole Home WiFi System for Better WiFi Everywhere | NETGEAR


Then check back here for reports on the things you are considering, but remember that people turn up in this community with problems, not compliments. So look at reviews on Amazon, for example.
