Looking for an alternative to Netgear Genie

I have a Netgear WNR3500L that I manage somewhat with Netgear Genie. 'Somewhat' since my router is not really supported by the software. Is there an alternative?

One of the problems that I have is that I have connected an extra access point (DL2553) to the router, that does function, but remains unidentified in Genie.

You could always get the cloud products from Dlink or Linksys. Those would probably suit you are better. Given your limited budget, it would either be that or get products that truly support Genie.

Ubquiti has a cloud key, but that is to manage APs, not their routers.

PRTG is a good place to start if you only want to manage a local network.

If Cloud management and Visibility is what you are after it is hard to beat Meraki.

Thank you, but this is a network of 10 users max and this PRTG is no doubt very powerful, but way too expensive.

We do have a freeware version of PRTG with 100 sensors, which would be perfect for a 10-user network.  If you'd like to try it, simply download our 30-day trial version with unlimited sensors, and it will automatically revert to the 100-sensor freeware after the 30 days.
