Slower Than Expected 1/5
I paid more thinking I was getting a top of the line router but I’ve had a cheap Belkin router work better...👎🏽
Horrible router. 1/5
Constantly having to reboot so devices will connect. Come home and turn wifi on only to get “Unable to connect to ....”, or it is offline, or it states my password is incorrect which I don’t need to input every time! Returning it and getting something else. Was only good for a couple months.
Won’t even download 1/5
I can’t even download the app cause the router doesn’t even work I’d give it zero stars but it won’t let me
Awesome speed!! 5/5
Love this thing, speed is amazing!! Faster than I ever will use! And i love the app i can shut my wife’s internet off whenever I want 😈 she has no clue 👍
Didn’t improve signal 1/5
Bought this because I was only getting 2 bars of internet signal strength from the router provided by frontier. Bottom line is it didn’t help. Perhaps I can post a more positive rating in the future but so far it was not worth the money spent.
Got this router 1week ago. Can’t see 5g. App and pc don’t see anything connected anymore. Drops wireless all the time. I am going to return it to Walmart today!
Nighthawk App 5/5
It’s great!!! It has all the features I need.
Not so hot. 1/5
Switching from a 10-year old Apple base station to get some of the newer WiFi specs my devices now support, but man, the setup and use of this app and the router itself is several steps backward in terms of configurability, ease of use, and just plain old reliability vs. Apple.
Easiest setup 5/5
The easiest setup ever!
Best Netgear ever! 5/5
I purchased this Nighthawk a few years ago because of my Time Warner router and modem was so bad. I got a list from the website on which unit was compatible for my internet. So I went to Amazon and purchased the pair and it was simple to set up and able to get results. The speed for upload and download were consistently the same. So I also stream Netflix, gaming and YouTube from my smart tv. Never have issues with the system.
Netgear Night Hawk R7000 5/5
By Bear Vinson
By far the fastest speeds and reliability any MCSE needs to conduct both personal and professional business from home and office! Fantastic job NETGEAR for an out of the ballpark experience!!
I had previously written a good review because everything was working fine then I started getting the “wrong password” message and give it a one star review. I guess when an app gets an update the bad reviews get erased? Anyway after a firmware update I can go longer see any connected devices information, and the “wrong password” error.
Setting up an AX8 router out of the box is relatively simple on it’s own, but the app does an OK job of running you through it. The speed test results are way off though. My computer is reading over 400mbps via Charter Spectrum’s speed test while the in-app test is reading 50-100 or so. Both are powered by Oolka, so I’m not sure what’s going on there. Other than that it’s a decent app to interact with your equipment.
Nighthawk x10 5/5
By fam :)
Great router for multiple devices . Appears to need rebooted and updated frequently.
I would like an app that has the ability to access all settings. Including advanced settings on the router that require logging in to the router settings through a web browser.
Not mutch functionality compared to the Netgear Genie app 2/5
Waiting to see those promised New Features...
However, would prefer their development team focused more efforts on improving the Nighthawk Router itself (R7800 for example) whose new firmware relases DEGRADE its quality, stability, and performance. Hoping the latest .62 release is better than the most recent ones.
IMHO, Netgear sould get their PAID FOR products working better before creating a redundant FREE app.
@Netgear ? Are you listening?
Nice Device 4/5
I am able to login to the Nighthawk app on my iPad without any difficulty. But I am having difficulty getting my iPhone to be recognized in this app which is kind of strange. I guess I will have to call the company again to find out why this anomaly is occurring.
R6900 Router's Nighthawk App 5/5
By MLG pro 266
Remote management feature makes it convenience for monitoring wifi functionality, and status at home. Helpful for friends and family members from afar to assist with Wifi diagnostic and repair. Nighthawk App is compatible with more than one model of Netgear routers.
No help 1/5
I have been trying for two hours reset the router up and cannot even get into the iPhone app.
Such a great app, really well designed!
Seems stable and connects multiple devices 4/5
I just got this and it seems to be user friendly, powerful ( connection strong all across the house and even on the 2nd floor), I have 11 devices connected to it at the moment with no problems, and quick enough for 2 Xbox systems running at the same time ( one of them is hard wired though)
I can dig it 5/5
Great usage so far. Intuitive and even looks great. Set up my router no hassles.
Fast and easy
Can’t log into the app it takes me to the page then kicks me right out this is extremely disappointing since the ONLY reason I got this was to control my kids WiFi now I can’t even get in and the forget password option is a joke! Funny thing is everything works still on the old app password and all so I know it’s the nighthawk app!
Do NOT upgrade the Firmware!! 1/5
I responded to the email about updating the firmware. I did so, now NOTHING works. The only difference I can see is the ability to create a QR code to allow someone to access WiFi. Not worth the hassle to get everything working again. It took me three hard boots of the router plus two of the modem before the router would reconnect with the modem. Somewhere in the process my wife’s tablet got booted off the approved devices list. I still can’t get her connected.
By richard mik
The router keeps on going offline and it’s difficult to login to see what’s going on
Extender is worse it times out and does not let device sign on to it to connect to internet
Doesn’t even work 1/5
Joke of an app. Can’t find router that I’m already connected to, or continually asks me to login. Broken garbage, never using this company again
Netgear Nighthawk 5/5
Works great. Very fast. Very happy with purchase. Would definitely recommend.
Device list useless 1/5
No devices show up on devices list. No content filter.
Won’t update 1/5
By Senior Maverick
Router won’t update. It says it updated, but still shows previous firmware.
Great App!! 5/5
Great control of wifi right from your phone. You can cut connections or share password right from the palm is your hand, including speed tests.
Useful tool, mostly works well 4/5
The only issues I’ve had with the app are
1) list of connected devices is flakey until you edit the device names. Then they always appear by name.
2) I have two of their routers, in two different homes. The app (or maybe it’s me!) sometimes gets confused about which router is local and which is remote, and sometimes shows a single router twice, one as local and the other as remote.
The routers themselves are great. Fast, and with great range.
App better than website 5/5
Tried in vane to access Netgear Router Login to update my Nighthawk R8000; downloaded the app and I was done in minutes.
So far we’re loving the Nighthawk app. Thanks for offering such a nice way to manage our router!
Continue password prompt 1/5
Utterly useless app. Keeps prompting password input and username info, even when entered correctly every single time. It was working fine before, some update must have messed it up. Please fix it.
Decide: IPhone Se iOS 12
By Too High Homie
Does the job. Well done ..
Needs improvements 2/5
I have used the Linksys app for a different router and it is very useful and comes with many features and settings that you can adjust on your router that this nighthawk app does not allow. Also, ever since i installed the router and started using the app i have never been able to use the remote access feature and if i turn it on on the settings it turns back off right away saying that an error occurred.
Drops WiFi constantly 1/5
Purchase this to replace the standard Comcast router that came with my Internet package. Always had stable Internet prior even if the coverage wasn’t so great. Now with this router it drops Wi-Fi signal to all of our devices in our 1300 square-foot home about every hour and a half. I am constantly having to reboot the router. Waste of money.
Good stuff! 5/5
Wow!!! Over 800mbs download and 42 MB’s upload completely throughout a 10,000 square foot house. That should take care of my 8 grand kid who are all gamers and the like watching 4K movies. The Knighthawk AX by NETGEAR really pushes a quad stream to all my device including a dozen Wifi cameras. Thank you NETGEAR FOR A GREAT PRODUCT.
I love the range you get. and all the control options on the phone app. I can torture my kids by pausing there connection.
It’s ok 3/5
Can’t do a lot of the things it’s says it does but good speed and coverage for the WiFi just wish u could do more from the app very disappointed for the price
Buggy app 2/5
Keeps prompting for password even if it’s correct. Workaround is to quickly click any screen before it goes back to pw prompt.
App doesn’t work 1/5
I login to my router and then reroutes me back to the login screen over and over and over again.
Great App 4/5
Easy to use
Best I’ve used 5/5
I like all the features it provides especially being able to pause internet individually instead of the whole WiFi. The parental controls are great. Very good signal throughout the entire house.
By like the convience
Nice app but certain features seem like a down grade from the Genie app
Loving this router. I can kick people off line if I chose. The biggest plus is checking my internet speed whenever I want. I intend on holding Comcast’s feet to the fire. Premium price should deliver premium service.
Router set up 5/5
This app has made it very easy to set up my router. A monkey could do it!
