Parental controls on RBR850

Hi,

I have just received the following reply from NG via Twitter

Hi , thank you for reaching out. The reason why Parental Control is not available yet in Orbi 6 is because we will be releasing our own Parental control. You may check the link below:

Re: Parental controls on RBR850

Seems ridiculous it’s taking Netgear this long to get foundational parental controls on its best high speed mesh system. Frankly it’s like giving the keys to the a Ferrari to your 12 year old kid. I’m love the connectivity but I’m so disappointed in a year of the pandemic to not have had strong parental controls. Based on the packaging when I purchased the RBR it certainly appeared they had parental control options, I’m now considering abandoning the router for an alternative as Netgear can’t get it together.

Re: Parental controls on RBR850

I am very disappointed with how Netgear is handling there product support. In Canada I paid approx $900 for the router and the 1 satellite.. The performance is good, but there is NO parental controlls. When I called support they told me to return it if I didnt like it.. I would if I could but it is past the 30days and Amazon will no longer support the return of the product and there is no way I am going to buy another router one.

Re: Parental controls on RBR850

Also disapointed in the lack of PC on the 850.  Had ther RBR50 for years, died last saturday,  Had to make a call on the replacement without being able to do much research.  Had like the RBR50 so I ponied up and payed the rediculus price for the 850.  I am so disapointed.
