Question about NetGear DG834 Router
Other than doing a complete factory reset is there any smart way using the WEP encryption keys that would allow me to gain access to the password for my router which I have misplaced/forgotten ?
For info if having problems you need to do a factory reset,
just pushing a pin or whatever it is you use to poke the hole at the
back of your router is just not good enough, here is the official line
quote from netgear.
Hold down the reset button on the back using a paper clip, for 30 seconds with the power on.
After 30 seconds, keep the reset pressed in but remove the power lead for 10 seconds.
Then plug the power back in and keep the reset down for another 30 seconds.
So in total the reset is down for 1 minute and 10 seconds
Log into the routers web based configuration page by, launching Internet Explorer and in the address bar type
username = admin
password = password
I was having problems with the 1.5 firmwire where the router was rebooting it's self 2-5 times a day, logs date and time changing back to default of 12:00 2002 or something near.
So far I have just gone back to 1.4.3 firmware which seems to work fine for a few weeks before requiring a power off and on.
