I first installed this several years ago, with the purchase of a Netgear router. I was never able to use it, since it never took long before it started eating processor cycles, and I had to force it to quit. Since then, I have made several attempts to uninstall it, without success. Neither Netgear nor their Community Support Forum have been of any help. Fortunately, perhaps, it's been replaced by a new app called Nighthawk. Never tried Nighthawk.

eI ended up purchasing an Eero router, too many problems with the Netgear switching from PC to Mac.

As is the case with many browser-based apps, they are dumbed down, "lite" versions of any useful interface or software. Netgear Genie is no different.

The "new" version looks identical to the 2016 and maybe even the 2015 versions. I can't tell any difference.

Do yourselves a favour: type "routerlogin.net" in your browser, instead of installing this crap =:-/

Requirements • Intel, 64-bit processor • OS X 10.7 or later Somehow, _Netgear router_ got left off the list of requirements.

Very short list of supported devices. My 3 year old Netgear DSL router is *not* covered/ accessible for control (and no enabled IPv6 allowed) --- leaves it as merely eye-candy display.

Supported list is here http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/24686

Without that, I might as well just continue on with my device access via browser.
