    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

    "Good software"

    December 7, 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.
