  • Norton Core firmware update 190410_282 performance problems

    By BB - Norton Core
    After the router firmware was updated to 190227_278, many of my iPhone applications started displaying network connection errors each time upon initial application start. The typical application error message was “No network connection” or “Failure to sync”. These messages then go away if the application is forced to retry, or if the application has built-in retry. The 190410_282 update has not fixed this issue.

  • Guests can now be removed from the list but the security score is not changed.

    By DonB41
    I just had guests for the first time and, because they did not have Norton Security installed on their devices my security score dropped 40 points (10 per device) but has not recovered after their removal from the list. Also, I installed Norton Security on my wife’s laptop but the Norton Core software does not find it, so I don’t get credit for it. The reason may be that it is under my e-mail address; I requested tech help when I set it up because I could not finish installing it without paying for it again if I wanted it to have an account under my wife’s control for password access. Norton apparently does not have “Family Sharing.” That is what the tech support person told me anyway. But he also told me that Norton Security did not work on iPhones or iPads, which is not true—I have it on my iPhone and iPad. Maybe he was confused by the fact that Norton was about to drop the then current security app and replace it with another. But that was inexcusable. He sounded like the same support person who screwed up my initial installation and was supposed to call me back when the timer preventing my login from being accepted would expire, but he was hours late from the expected time and then called while I was eating my dinner which I had delayed so I could take his expected call. Then he called again several times, mostly when I had gone to bed; the other times when I was driving or otherwise couldn’t take the call. I almost returned the Core hardware and only decided to try again almost a year later when my free period was almost over and I figured I couldn’t return it for my money back. This has been the worst support experience of any hw/sw purchase I have ever made. Note that when the Norton Core software blocks a site they have determined may be malicious, there is no information about that site for the user to agree or disagree on blocking it. And if the user blocks a site, and later finds it should not have been blocked, there are not instructions on how to revisit the decision. When a Guest Network is created, there is the option to manually allow guests to join or block them, or to allow all who receive the password to join. If the manual approach is chosen, the manual does not tell the owner how to accept the guest. The Norton Core owner has to go to the “Alerts” [the bell symbol in the upper right corner of the app window] and select the Notifications column to Allow or Block the guest’s access. This is not explained anywhere that I could find.
  • Device more solid, App V1.5 much better.

    By zCAT9
    As user and owner since the core came on the market I can finally say they seem to have most of bugs worked out in the latest V1.5 version of the Apple IOS app and the Core latest firmware update. I say most, because I still can change/edit the Device Model description but cannot not save the change. DHCP reserving is working and I able to set both of the last octets now, yea. The Core setup seems to work great now, I know this since I had to do reset from scratch ;-( because of a connection issue with my ISP. I have done this several times to see how well it works now, I am happy to say it was easy, however patience is required while it go thru the processes. I would give the app five stars when the Core can change the IP range to a different Private IP range and fix the above mentioned bug. I cannot speak to the parental controls as I don’t use them. This concept of whole home router core protection is finally coming to maturity and I happy to have one less thing to manage and worry less about.
  • Giving it a try!

    By Regrover777
    I have a severe hacker problem where I live. I want every line defense I can get to deal with my problems. Norton Core doesn’t solve all my problems but it helps out a lot. I would suggest you all try it. Be sure to check out the YouTube videos on Norton Core.
  • Newest update turned it into a fancy brick

    By ZaqCapone
    Can’t get into advanced settings to configure my network. And it seems like speeds are slower now. Wish I could rollback for eh old version.

  • Norton Core Subscription Service

    By Interstial Fluids
    I let my one year subscription expire without renewing because the only choice is a month to month service, and the product is named differently than the original Norton Core Subscription. After one month I renewed my subscription, but now my list of blocked websites no longer blocks. This feature was the main reason I renewed. After wasting almost an hour of India tech support (pathetic), the rep said he would escalate and I would receive a call-back in 24-48 hours. The did call after several days but did not have any resolution. On my first contact I requested a manager to discuss compensation for the inoperable feature I renewed subscription for; no manager called. Symantec, specifically Norton, is losing customers in the US due to the incompetent support from India!
  • Freezes constantly

    By Serventek
    The app freezes all the time . My wife has the same iPhone and hers freezes too
  • Generally happy...

    By TheLoneSamurai
    But wish I had little more control of which domains to block... I also want to delete some devices I shortly connected to wifi for maintenance or devices not used anymore... Overall however, I’m happy with the router and happy with the app😃 Hope they come out with ver2 of CORE😍
