As a user if you are reading this article, means you are in search of steps to enable the router to work with Amazon Alexa. So let’s understand the procedure laid below by Netgear tech Support Company.
Before you enable your Netgear router with Alexa, it is important that you download the Netgear genie app, create a remote access account, and register your router with your remote access account. It is important here that you know the conditions you will have to follow before enabling the router to work with Amazon Alexa.
*Important Note: There are two ways to permit your Netgear router to work with Amazon Alexa. Users are advised to use the command “Alexa, enable the Netgear Skill,” if not this you can manually link the Netgear skill to your Alexa app.
The way that you phrase your commands can vary. For example, both “Alexa, ask NETGEAR to enable the guest network” and “Alexa, ask NETGEAR to turn on my guest network” turn on your guest Wi-Fi network.
The following Alexa commands are supported by your NETGEAR router:
- Alexa, ask NETGEAR to enable the guest network.
- Alexa, ask NETGEAR to disable the guest network.
- Alexa, ask NETGEAR to reboot my router.
- Alexa, ask NETGEAR to send me my Wi-Fi settings.
Take a careful note of the above pointers. You may use it later, if not now.
