Question about NetGear DG834G Router
I am with AOL and cannot get this router to connect. I have reset it (inserting a pin in the hole at the bottom) but no luck. I can't find anywhere to put my username and password into it. I think Sky have blocked the router so you Can't use it with any other ISP. I would be obliged if anyone can tell me simply how to get around this.
OK - it can be very simple to do, but took me two hours to work out ;-)
Google for all the info you can.
Download the recovery utility from Netgear.
Download the latest OS from Netgear.
Flash the router with the OS.
Enter the router config panel.
Change the Sky login and password to the ones given you by your ISP.
That should be that.
Keep trying: I did, I'm no expert, and I got there.
Do everything you can to a*sf*ck Murdoch and his company.

Try username - admin, password - sky it's sky's standard logon details for their routers. I used it on mine, and hey presto can access all the configuration settings.

You are right mate...Sky has disabled the uname n pword n locked the firmware... I really dont think anything will work however u can try finding a work around of how to remove the existing firmware n upgrade a new firmware... That might work

Well to set the settings with that router, you must log on to it by www.routerlogin.net then it will bring you into setup and you put your name in to the spaces provided for name and password...

You could be right, but normally, as long as you can get into the routers settings by typing it's IP address in your internet browser, you can go through the connection process using the wizard;or go to the connection menu, or new connection and enter your password and username.
