 |  Version: NETGEAR Genie 2.2.28.23

Pros

Netgear software is good. easy to use and lots of flexibility with the desktop software. I have yet to be able to put the program through the ropes and give a proper review.

Cons

*** cnet. you add conduit search utility to your downloads. that shiz ain't cool. why don't you just spit in our faces while raming the unknowing up the corn hole.

Summary

though you can find many usefull programs here BEWARE!!!!
cnet likes to pigroast its downloaders.

"Good software"

December 07, 2013  |  By monkeyfurball

 |  Version: NETGEAR Genie 2.2.28.23

Pros

Notifies me of firmware updates. Monitors my home network 24/7. Reboots modem if needed. Troubleshoots modem and network.

Cons

None at this point.

Summary

Great software. I really like the notifications it gives me as soon as a firmware update is available. Has worked flawlessly since I bought my R6300 router. Maps every device on the network, shows which ones are on, which are off, and any problems. Manages our home NAS, routes print jobs, etc.

"Not all that!"

October 22, 2013  |  By la822

 |  Version: NETGEAR Genie 2.2.28.23

Pros

It worked great for the first couple weeks.

Cons

Keeps getting Visual+ runtime errors. Netgear said they could not test without another computer so could not help me and suggested I contact Microsoft...even though the error message said to contact Netgear. I did check for an update and there was one, however it would not fully load so can't update.

Summary

My cable provider offers a modem with wi-fi built in and free support. I am going for it.

"Too many bugs"

July 23, 2013  |  By bearpawqs

 |  Version: NETGEAR Genie 2.2.28.23

Pros

It's nice to be able to monitor the network.

Cons

It keeps disconnecting me from the internet. I am uninstalling it from all my computers and devices. It does not work properly on my Windows 7 AND 8 computers.

Summary

Nice idea and concept but very poorly executed.
