Re: Router



I bought this router in January and could login to manage parental controls and other various things. But just tried to login throught the Genie app and am redirected to the Nighthawk app. There is virtually nothing i can do with it. It lets me login but there is not anything i can control. Particularly, Parental controls. Not sure what to do other than throw the thing in the trask and get a Linksys.

Re: Router

You can still use Desktop Genie to configure Parental Control. Your NH app could do:

1. remote management

2. speed test

3. configure wireless settings

4. reboot the router

5. check for firmware update

6. Pause/Resume internet per device

7. WiFi analytics for signal strength

8. Configure Traffic Meter

9. Configure Guest Network

10.Help you install your router for internet connection

11.Account Management for your Netgear account

12.Your device's support contract

13.Enabling Circle

14.Enabling Armor

If you don't use these things then you could throw your device or phone away.

Hi @hbhoyle, welcome to the community! As suggested by JoseAndres041, you can still ustilize the desktop Genie. You can download it on the link below.
