Modem app and program free from Netgear

I stumbled by this. Netgear have a program for PC/mac and an iPad/iPhone app called Genie that will remotely control the Virgin 'SuperHub' and probably other netgear modems too. You can get basic settings of wi-fi and parental controls, basic network map and you can send media from connected devices (eg iPad) to other connected media players (eg WD TV Live). There is a network trafic monitor too but that does not seem to work with my hardware. P.S. I'm not advertising this and have not financial interest (it's free anyway) I have just posted this because I thought it might be of interest.... as it was for me.

Genie shouldnt support the SH fully.

 

Use at your own risk, LPC may be able to be set up, but not sure much else will work.
