Solution! I finally found he proper solution. After weeks of dealing with constant resets and flaky connections and speeds, I went and bought a Velop by Linksys. Works perfectly and am not dropping connections and seeing speeds of 150/15 over WiFi. Greatest decision of my life. I suggest you consider it since Netgear doesn’t seem to care about the crappy performance that everyone is complaining about on this thread.

Glad you got it running, though it's a pricey solution for a problem that Netgear should've resolved a long time ago.  I guess I'm lucky that I've had no issues after one hard reset. If I may ask, what is your modem (I assume it's cable) actully outputting with a direct ethernet connection/?

How do I reconfigure my settings? I did the stupid update from the app and now nothing works and my MacBook crashed!

At this point it is reset and start over with configuration. Reset will put the router back to the default out of the box configuration, but with what ever firmware you updated to. If you created a backup of the configuration, do no use it as there maybe changes in the firmware that would confilct with your existing configuration, happens with Netgear crappy firmware.

Anyone try the new firmware 1.0.9.60_10.2.60?

Wondering if it has resolved the wifi issues

I had major issues on 5ghz after .60 update. Ended up downgrading after a hard reset didn’t fix it. Devices would get randomly disconnected from 5ghz and some couldn’t reconnect.
