    You'll have to visit the Netgear support page. I don't use NetUSB.

    NetUSB is a driver flaw that exposes routers to hacking.

    Yes, I am not overwhelmed by Netgear's firmware (or most anyone else either) which seems heavily predisposed to fixing issues with their gizmo apps rather than addressing security/stability issues. Why I keep eying TP_link for my next router.
