Everything is put out nicely on the Nighthawk app for a guided setup and accessing information most users will be interested in, like speed information, devices connected, Wi-Fi settings, and parental controls utilizing the Circle with Disney app to track everyone’s screen time and activity. The app includes a 30-day trial of Netgear Armor security, which detects a malware, bots, and network vulnerabilities.
The mobile app’s basic look caters to the common user, but that means less control over technical parameters. This information isn’t concealed but in the Netgear user handbook.
The Nighthawk X6 has a built-in firewall, but you may customize its security settings and setup using its web interface you can setup it by mywifiext. From the web GUI’s advanced settings area, you can block websites, set up security email notifications, establish VPN service, create a personal FTP server, or use Dynamic DNS. Other web GUI functions include setting up a USB drive for Time Machine backups on Mac laptops and using the router’s media server to play iTunes music.
The Nighthawk X6 R8000 is pleasant to both novice and advanced users.
