NETGEAR Up is now the preferred method to setup Nighthawk routers. This app is available for iOS and Android, I am using it on iOS with an iPhone 7 Plus.

The app guides you through the setup with a series of menus. The first seen above aids in connecting cables.

This next step continues to connecting to the default wireless network for the router.

We move on to searching and finding the router.

The app then checks for firmware updates, and if there are any, it will update your router to the latest version.

After we have the latest firmware, we move on to setting up our network SSID. This can be anything you want.

Last in setup, the router will configure with the settings you specified.

Once you are in the app, you will see the detected router at the top with the 2.4 and 5GHz networks listed with their passwords. Down below we have a device list that shows what is connected.

Along with the app, you still have the WebGUI available with all the standard features.
