Its getting to the point where if your product doesn’t work with Alexa, its just no good anymore. NetGear provides Alexa integration for several of its router. The current list of supported routers includes:


To configure your compatible router to work with Alexa, you first must…

  1. Download the NETGEAR genie app.
  2. Create a remote access account.
  3. Register your router with your remote access account.


Once you’ve accomplished that:

  1. Locate the Alexa skill in the Alexa app, or find it HERE on the web.
  2. Link the Alexa skill to your NETGEAR account by clicking the Enable button.


Once enabled, you can issue commands like…

“Alexa, ask NETGEAR to enable guest network”
“Alexa, ask NETGEAR to enable 5G guest network”
“Alexa, ask NETGEAR to disable guest network”
“Alexa, ask NETGEAR what are my WiFi settings”
