Extremely Easy Setup


This app made the router setup and registration extremely easy and fast. My old router kept disconnecting my WiFi devices so I decided to purchase a new one. Delayed setting up a few days after I received the new router expecting the process to take a while. I was wrong! With the NETGEAR UP app it was fast and painless. My only suggestion would be to add an explanation for WPS setup as part of the Quick Start. Thanks for making it easy.

Worked great for me.


I don't get why this has such terrible reviews. Needed a new router so we went and bought the AC1750 version and was terrible. Literally could not get it to work so we went and replaced it the same day and bought the Nighthawk 1900 and this had our router/internet going in literally 10 minutes. Easiest process ever and would recommend the router!

Failed to detect router


Brand new right out of the box I followed the steps in the app and even after I connected to the correct WiFi (double checked the sticker on the router) it said that it failed to find the router. I have installed hundreds of routers in my 18+ years of working in IT. These "smart" routers may work in most cases but they definitely DO NOT work every time. I miss the days of a plain old simple router setup. In an effort to make it simple for everyone to install a router they have over complicated a process that wasn't THAT hard to start with.
