NETGEAR has been named an International CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for its NETGEAR Genie application.

The products entered in this esteemed program are judged by a distinguished panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 32 product categories.

The NETGEAR Genie is a desktop application that runs on both PC and Mac providing a simple dashboard to monitor, control and repair home networks. The application is currently available at no cost for the WNDR3800 and WNDR4500 with additional routers to be included soon.

Genie automatically sends alerts when networking issues occur and with a click of a button, automatically diagnoses and repairs them, or helps the customer repair the problem. It is also an easy-to-use dashboard for launching additional NETGEAR applications including; Parental Controls, Broadband Usage Meter, Wi-Fi Channel Selection, Network MAP, USB Disk Printer Sharing, and more.
