i have Netgear Genie. It no longer recognizes my router. However, the app allows me in and shows my network. BUT - my router doesn't show in the connect section. Can't use routerlogin.com because it says my router isn't connected my computer. It all started when Genie notified me to update new security fix.

Drop down says.....DWPS process is in progress, please apply the changes later. what's that?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
WPS
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
By the way...the download Netgear said to use to fix security problem is corrupted.
Software technician: Karthik, Computer Technician replied 7 months ago

WPS stands for Wi-Fi Protected Setup. It is a wireless network security standard that tries to make connections between a router and wireless devices faster and easier

Ask Your Own Software Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I can't see whether this fix will help until they finish update?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I wonder how the enable got turned off. was working fine until I tried security download.
Software technician: Karthik, Computer Technician replied 7 months ago

It might be some power outage happen without your knowledge, it might reset the router to factory default settings. So by default the wifi will be turned off.
