Hello,
I am the person that will be helping you today.

May I ask what it is you are currently working on? (ie: Installing a new router, configuring a new router, setting up a wireless card, etc)

I will be standing by, looking forward to your response.

Thank you,
Jason

i installed windows 10 on my dell tablet. then i installed the netgear genie app. everything else seems to work except the network map app portion, it just reads scanning continuously?

Are you using the app for anything particular or you just want the app to work?
