Access NightHawk RAX40 (AX3000) router settings without app

The 192.168 address just forwards to some horrible "shop netgear products" website. The section of the webpage pushing the app has an FAQ entry of "Do I need the app?" and the answer suggests no, but its browser-based login link just circles back to the brochure homepage. There are instructions to clear browsing data, which has no effect.

I will definitely never purchase another netgear product. In the meantime how can I access settings like routing tables, SSID etc?

it's http://192.168.1.1 and not 192.168

User error? If so, blame it on the company, of course! /sarcasm

It is difficult to follow what you are actually doing there.

 

As others have said, your incomplete description of what you are doing has a lot of missing detail and some wrong moves on your part.

 

For example, what is this 192.168 address? It will get you nowhere. It only lands on a Netgear site when you do something wrong.

 

Take us through things a step at a time.

 

This stuff is unforgiving. Get things a bit wrong,  miss out a crucial step, and the sky falls in.

 

Sadly, this is not down to any failing in Netgear's part. They all do the same thing.

The answer may "suggest no", but that does not mean that you cannot use the app. Did you try it?

 

You could start with that. It is designed to make things simple, especially for inexperienced users.
