NETGEAR Nighthawk - WiFi App app reviews

  • Nighthawk 5/5

    By tcalder138
    Works outstanding for all my wireless applications
  • Wish Support Would Help 1/5

    By Kirkusm
    In order to get this working I had to call support and have them walk me through it. Months later power goes out and I need to reset everything. Problem is I can’t login to the app and there is no way to reset the password. I’ve reached out to support with proof of purchase and no help. Not sure what I should do next but overall frustrating experience.
  • Junk 1/5

    By jburgos40
    I’m done with this junk no matter what I do to upgrade firmware it will not do it. Now it just stop working so it’s going in trash. I purchased another router and it’s not a netgear stay away from this junk. I will let all the customers I support never to by netgear.
  • Got it working 5/5

    By 714 myke
    The best thing working at this point thanks 🙏
  • Frustrating 1/5

    By ndrblur
    This app is buggy, when opening the app, it usually prompts me to sign in or sign up. I already have an account. It’s so PESKY to even ask me to login when I just want to unblock a device on a RAX40………
  • Setup to Complicated 1/5

    By Glizzbandz
    They made setting up and resetting your modem on this app like solving a algebra problem. People just want to connect their router with the service provider and get to using internet. All the extra that’s added to that process is not necessary.
  • Netgear nighthawk 5/5

    By cary d o
    Super easy to set up on my iphone
  • The worst performance 1/5

    By A new fan 5957
    The username field is fixed and cannot be altered. I haven’t been able to log in for days
  • Easy setup. 1/5

    By sanjayock
    Easy setup. I am really confused that my app access disabled when I changed my login Id for I am end up doing router reset to get going. I hope this will not happen again.The Wi-Fi signal is very poor. It is keep dropping.
  • UNUSABLE 1/5

    By Eric90123
    After setting up your device it forces you to create account, after you do that and press “create” it goes into a never ending loading screen and never creates and never lets you use the app at all.
  • Account making 1/5

    By Javi57go
    Won’t even let me make an account
  • Simple 5/5

    By ThefiremanE4
    Literally took me less than 20 minutes to set up. Fastest I’ve had to date. Highly recommend.
  • Wish there was a zero star option. 1/5

    By ScottMN
    Completely worthless unusable app. Every time I open it up, something gets screwed up with my internet or the app times out. I can’t believe how awful this app is. STAY FAR, FAR AWAY FROM NETGEAR!
  • Ugh - so many problems 2/5

    By Ugh migraine
    I bought a Nighthawk router and modem a year ago. It was my first time buying my own equipment instead of renting it from my service provider. I’ve never had so many problems. Stay away.
  • Won’t update anymore 1/5

    By Cables55
    App won’t update router anymore
  • Excellent router app 5/5

    By Scottman9899
    I can monitor my wifi from anywhere which is so cool. The best I’ve had so far.
  • Nighthawk Router 5/5

    By Harry Jack
    Very fast and efficient tool in our home and office. Able to check speeds and possible malware ahead of time. We like it very much.
  • Impossible to use 1/5

    By Jcrm2022
    The app seems to have all the right features, but what’s the point if they don’t work? Want to see what devices are on your wifi? Too bad, “try again later”. Want to reboot your router? Too bad, “try again later”. What to contact support? You guessed it—“try again later”. I’ve been trying again later for 3 weeks.
  • Still can’t sign in on IOS 1/5

    By MrRagerTV
    Ridiculous. I haven’t been able to sign in to manage my router via the app in so long. You’d think it would have been addressed by now. I’m switching routers very soon.
  • Router 5/5

    By Megababylover
    Great product and great customer service. We have used this for years and it’s easy to update and operate.
  • Very Dissatisfied 1/5

    By Big K-man
    Speeds are slower, tech support is terrible, will not connect with very common devices.
  • Meh 1/5

    By It’s a bust
    Consistently inconsistent. Coming from a tech company I’d expect a much better app. Will be looking for another option. Buh bye!!!
  • Stops in the middle of test run 1/5

    By Bugsss????
    Don’t know if there’s a bug it keeps on logging
  • No idea where these reviews come from. 1/5

    By Darwinmazariegos
    I’ve had this app since I bought my router and from day one it almost does not work. When it does work it’s unusably slow and either times out mid command or never gets to the screen I want. I don’t have a clue where these good reviews come from.
  • Hot garbage at best 1/5

    By Granterp
    It’s pretty much worthless. If I would have known the app was this bad I would have purchased a different company. Good luck with the foreign support team. Netgear should be (but isn’t) ashamed of this garbage and the state of its company.
  • Every time they update the app is not working correctly 1/5

    By verizon 1
    App is working correctly
  • Super extender 5/5

    By Inson Dubois Wood
    Heard it was good a good Wi-Fi extender from a friend - but was delightfully surprised as Nighthawk X6 really managed to penetrate my solid concrete walls incredibly well. Great when u don’t want to staple wires all over your apartment and can’t rip up walls. Highly recommended - ( zero payment made for this review, just like to share a good product - Owner of architecture firm: Inson Dubois Wood LLC
  • Cant get connected to the router 1/5

    By Asdfghjkl2023
    Tried 100 times and failed 100 times. So frustrating, the app keeps “time out”.
  • New to it but so far so great! 5/5

    By TakenKing69
    Just bought this and so far I enjoy everything about it!
  • Admin log in 1/5

    By Jencra56
    App does not work. Cannot log in! Have to go to router login web site to check system. Admin login not working!
  • App is faulty 1/5

    By 113h123
    App shows satellites as disconnected??? They are not disconnected and are working. This is an app issue. Disappointed ☹️
  • WI-FI 5/5

    By Shank Joe
    Works really well. More coverage than we ever had
  • Excellent service 5/5

    By calilile
    Muy buen servicio
  • basic app 5/5

    By ongod30239
    the app is basic, the router is INSANE highly recommended but this buy this buy this. INSANE improvements to my network speeds!!!
  • Awesome 5/5

    By New rich words!
    I got that wifi router to upgrade from low grade wifi router and very interesting. It connects with your smartphone to see what’s happening with wifi router and what need update.
  • "Effortlessly Manage and Monitor Your Network with Nighthawk App" 5/5

    By inxenious
    As an avid user of the Nighthawk app, I can confidently say that it is one of the best network management apps out there. The app is extremely user-friendly and offers a wide range of features that make it easy to manage and monitor your network from anywhere. One of the standout features of the app is the ability to set up and manage your network with just a few taps on your smartphone. With Nighthawk, you can easily configure your network settings, create a guest network, and even set up parental controls to keep your kids safe while browsing the internet. Another great feature of the Nighthawk app is its real-time network monitoring capabilities. With the app, you can easily view your network's bandwidth usage, connected devices, and even monitor network health and performance. This is particularly helpful for those who rely on their network for work or entertainment and need to ensure that their network is running smoothly at all times. Overall, I would highly recommend the Nighthawk app to anyone who is looking for an easy-to-use and powerful network management tool. Whether you're a tech-savvy user or just someone who wants to keep their network running smoothly, this app is definitely worth checking out.
  • New Users 5/5

    By Lwood 415
    The application is easy to understand and is a good way to monitor the WiFi network in your home
  • Can’t Connect 1/5

    By QuizzicalKid
    The latest release refuses to connect to my device after putting in my admin credentials. These same credentials can be used in the browser interface to connect to the device (AC1740)
  • Decent Interface 4/5

    By Masterzilla12
    It’s a decent interface with minimal personalization. I do wish you were able to control everything when it comes to routers and extender directly on the app instead of having to go onto the website to gain more control. I also do wish I was able to see all the devices connected to the mesh system on one page vs having to go to each router to find out what’s connected where. Hopefully these improvements can be made in the future. Other than that the app is easy to use.
  • Not able to login into my router anymore 1/5

    By gieckos
    … although the login works fine via website… I sent several messages and bug reports but no one from Netgear seems to care. So, no use for this app anyway
  • Terrible app 1/5

    By Me23at
    It keeps logging me out.
  • Unreliable app and Netgeat equipment 1/5

    By A/V Tech
    App is sluggish, expensive to use parental controls and unreliable.
  • Marginally Useful 2/5

    By Tony-jr
    This app is good for Wi-Fi management which is nice to have, not needed all the time. The Device Manager has a lot to be desired. It picks up devices, but does a poor job identifying the assets. My other router does a much better job. The speed test raises questions - either it’s wrong or this router is reducing my download speeds by 45% (yes that much).
  • Rarely works 1/5

    By CDW1080
  • App stopped detecting router 1/5

    By Kypros Nighthawk
    Not sure why, but for the last few months the app hasn’t been able to find the router, saying I’m not connected; but if I manually put in the router up address I can get to it.via browser
  • Bad interface 1/5

    By Dhdhdnhd
    Very slow to get devices connected. Also UI is not great. Lot of bugs.
  • Absolutely Horrible 1/5

    By GeoQuin4
    When trying to fix one of the most important things we have in our daily lives, look no further for immense aggravation than the Nighthawk app and Netgear equipment. Not only is the equipment unreliable, but after a recent update I cannot even log into the app to view and change settings. I’ve gone through every troubleshooting step possible to no avail. I will absolutely never buy another Netgear product again. Running a CAX30, and EAX 80.
  • Signs me out 3/5

    Every once in a while it signs me out for no reason. If my internet isn’t working, this is usually the reason.
  • A breeze to set up and use 5/5

    By M.rodz
    By far, the easiest and most intuitive app I have used to set up and employ a WiFi Router. I was a bit nervous because this would’ve been the first router setup I’d setup wirelessly—without using a wired computer. It was literally a breeze.
