I just grabbed a Nighthawk R6700 and went to set up QOS and Netgenie always gives Netflix and Hulu "highest" priority and you don't seem to be able to delete this. You have to take whatever Netgear's database says gets high priority. Then you can add other high priority items.

What I want is to make Hulu, Netflix, YouTube *low* priority. Am I missing something? I mean WTF? Why would they force me to give highest priority to specific things?

If thats true Tom, then Netflix must be paying for that.

(aside) We have a no electronics in the bedroom rule.

If you want to sit up.. read a book.
Alarm?  I bought an alarm clock.

[aside] I was just having this discussion with my wife this - I feel like using your phone as an alarm clock is the first and slipperiest step down the slippery slope.

Probably so... I can't believe, like the old days (Huh) when computers came with all manner of pre-installed junk, that I can't deactivate it.

[aside] We have a TV, phones, tablets and laptops in the bedroom. This thread has made me think, and a new radio alarm may be the first step.

Anyone still looking into this? I never got around to actually buying a new one, but demand is high in the household and I need to get one asap.

Any pointers or is the AC1900 still the one?

Mine has been so problem-free that it's reached the much-coveted status of damn-I-have-forgotten-everything-I-knew-about-that-piece-of-gear.

I was supposed to update it's firmware due to vulnerability but keep putting it off.

I have resetplug installed on the power for the cable modem and also the router.  It *may* be a contributor to the router's damn-I-have-forgotten-everything-I-knew-about-that-piece-of-gear status.

Ditto (though different model of Nighthawk). I used to have to futz with the routers after every power outage. We recently had the phone lines go down for a couple of days and I did have to reset the router and realized it's the first time I've gone into the storage area to look at it since I added the reset plug
