Today i bought the new wifi router from netgear contacted support and onee asked me 500$ to setup and other one asked me for 1000$ beacuse he said my system has no firewall. These were the websites routeloginnet.net, https://routeloginnet.com what should i do now wait for you guys to take action on these guys meanwhile im going to return netgear product. Im 75 years old and i bought this router for my family home. I cannot deal with this scam .
You must be confused.
routeloginnet.com is not a Netgear associated website.
Try and give that a go and see how things work out for you....
These are Scam sites - complete crap, don't pay anything, not let them access your computer(s)! All complete unrelated to Netgear. If your credit card was charged, talk to the credit card issuer to refund your money.
Netger support does start via https://my.netgear.com/ where you can register your Netgear product(s), to contact support, use My Support -> Contact Support ...
These criminals are abusing search engines, advertisements, typos, and much more to bring them to the Scam sites. You will NOT find phone numbers or email addresses on Bing, on Google, on whatever search engine, for most of the biger vendors.
These domains routerlogin.net or routerlogin.net (there are some more for other NEtgear devices) are not to gain support - - these are used just to access your router as long as you are connected to your own [W]LAN. Here is the how-to:
If you get redirected to these Scam sites afraid, your computer and/or the router was compromised by their activities.
Edit: While talking, these are typical Scam sites e.g on a Bing search result list - there is not much more we can do in thee communities than warn and create awareness:
When it comes to spam and scams the avoidance is 90% user and 10% Anti-Virus Software.
Awareness and common sense are your friend.
Pay attention, even a website address such as http://netgear.suport.net can be deceptive to users to get them to visit "Fake Sites" and "Scam Sites"......etc. Notice I misspelled "Support" in the above address which points to a website named suport.net which could be a scam site....
So be aware..... protect yourself.
"Well you guys can talk to bing about it."
Thats not going to happen...... Search engines are their own entity.....
The internet is jam-a-whamma-packed with scams and nasties and hacks that affect every aspect of connecting to the internet that anyone could possibly imagine....
The responsibility lies with the user..... Beware... The internet is not innocent and it is not a safe venue for the ignorant.
