I was using a Netgear Nighthawk M1 portable mi-fi router as a base station for two Arlo cameras without issue for two years, but the Arlo App said my Nighthawk was offline. I've tried turning it off and on again, and tried disabling and enabling arlo functionality via the netgear web portal and reconnecting the cameras, but when i scan in the arlo app, nothing comes up.

 

Are Nighthawks no longer supported by arlo? If so why is Arlo Hub Base Station still an option in the netgear web portal?

 

Please help. My home is vulnerable whilst this isn't working.

There have been a few abortive attempts to integrate Arlo capabilities into Netgear routers. All have failed miserably due to the need to update Arlo much more frequently than the router firmware. I expect that the M1 was the final attempt which has now been removed.

 

BTW, Netgear and Arlo are now two separate companies.
