Re: Rif.: Top NETGEAR Support FAQs - Router Login, Firmware & More

If you wanted your customers to do updates the proper way which is not using the phone app which you should never do!  THEN THE BEST WAY TO DO THAT IS BY NOT PUTTING THAT IN THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL MORONS!!! Netgear used to make good routers  that would get firmware updates that didn't break functionality of the device.  Now I'm afraid to get any updates for fear of having to re-flash an older out of date firmware with security issues just to keep the internet working!  I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER PEICE OF JUNK PRODUCT FROM NETGEAR!!! AND YOUR SUPPORT SUCKS!!!

Don’t use app to set it up. Computer works best.

In fact app wouldn’t even see router after firmware updates.

Next set limit speeds for your internet under advance.

Never had a problem again, until next firmware update.

Also cable modems are basically setup from cable company. Just reset to factory and turn off for over 30 seconds. Works every time for me.

I am a bit startled that NETGEAR has decided to put an advertisement for the app inside of the router administration tools. Is there any option to disable this? I paid for the device and do not appreciate this kind of tactic.

That is not an advertisement. Netgear is just trying to keep you up to date on its services.

 

Start complaining when it tries to sell you a Big Mac.

 

Is the Model: A7000|Nighthawk AC1900 WiFi USB Adapter - USB 3.0 listed in your footer involved in this in anyway? Or did you just click the first thing that popped up when you wrote your message? Or maybe you were trying to advertise something.

Just another user.
