How To Fix Genie App Status Problem On Wired Computer?

Today, we will explain why the Genie connection status displays ‘Not enabled’ message on the computer connected via a wired connection to the Netgear router. Before discussing the troubleshooting steps, we would like to discuss the symptoms.


  • Wi-Fi connection status displaying ‘Not enabled’ on the wired computer screen.


  • The Wi-Fi connection if displaying ‘Not enabled’ then it means the Genie app has detected that the wired connection is being used by device or computer to access the app.
  • Genie’s status is also dependent on the connection done by the router.
  • If the Desktop Genie app can be used with the wireless device or when switched from wired to wires, then you will find ‘Automatically enabled’ message flashes on the screen. For example, if you are using the Wi-Fi capability on the desktop computer, then you will find the same interface.

This is how you can remove the ‘Genie app status’ problem from the Netgear router connected to the wired desktop.
