Setup hasn't changed much since our last encounter with a Netgear router. We still have the Genie platform that allows both manual and guided setup.

The basic landing menu gives a broad overview of the router itself while to the left we have a full range of higher level options to choose from

Starting with the Internet menu, we have access to WAN settings, and based on your ISP, you may need to log in here.

The wireless menu gives you access to both bands for configuring.

The attached devices menu is more of a network map, allowing you to see what devices are currently connected.

QoS hasn't changed much as Netgear still deploys one of the better solutions backed by a database of applications.

ReadyShare allows you to setup additional storage or printer sharing via the router.
