Hi,

What you can do before purchasing a new router is to try updating the firmware on your modem. The firmware can fix minor "bugs" or "malfunctions" that a device can have. You can go to the link below and try updating the firmware. The information you'll need to ensure you download the correct firmware is the "version number" of your modem. On the bottom of you modem there should be a "DG834G" with a "v" then a number. That is your "version number". If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

I am going to assume you were advised to download a firmware update and not a driver, as in 99% of user installations of a router drivers are not necessary. Below you will find the instruction for uploading the firmware to your router, as well as the links associated with the firmware. You need to access the router through a browser, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc. The reason you cannot find the file association is because this is a checksum file with a chk extension and there is no program that can run this in a computer environment, as it is a language file, compiled for installation through hardware. I hope this helps explain what is going wrong and how you can correct this issue. Let me know if you require additional information on setting up your router.
  1. Download the file to a convenient place such as your desktop.

    Note: Do not upgrade the firmware using a wireless connection. Please perform firmware upgrade with "wired" or Ethernet connection only.

  2. Open a Web browser.
  3. Access the router (http://192.168.1.1 or the Default Gateway address if the router's default IP was changed).
  4. Log in the router (User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed it).
  5. Write down all settings that you entered when previously configuring. This includes information such as ISP configuration and wireless security settings.
  6. Under Maintenance, click Router Upgrade.
  7. Click Browse and locate the firmware upgrade file.
  8. Click Upload.
  9. Wait for the router to reboot.
  10. Under Maintenance, click Settings Backup, then click Erase. (Or press the reset button on the back for 10 seconds.)
  11. Wait one minute for the router to reboot.
  12. Manually enter the configuration information you wrote down in Step 5.

Browsr Shutting Down


Actually, this is a common problem especially if you recently upgraded to Internet Explorer 8 (IE8). The typical problem is that many sites are not yet compatible to IE8 and they cause problems and you will probably see script warning errors occasionally too. IE8 has a little icon that looks like a broken page up to the right of the URL bar that is clicked on to improve compatibility with some sites and if you click that, it may help with some sites. Many people have decided to download Mozilla Firefox and use that as their main browser until Microsoft makes a better product. Firefox works with much less errors and issues. I suggest giving that a try.

Firmware update for netgear router


I was having the same issues too. I followed the steps dotted all over the internet and was getting stuck in exactly the same place. No matter how hard I tried, I just kept getting the 'invalid filename' issue.

Eventually I figured it out - the way that Netgear/Virgin have blocked firmware updating is to break the filename checking page so it doesn't accept any files. What we need to do is bypass the filename checking code so that the firmware upgrade system can then handle the file, and we're going to do this by manipulating the web page using a tool called Firebug.

Here is the solution:

1) If you haven't already got it, install Mozilla Firefox 3 (there is good reason for this - I'm not just shamelessly plugging it! :P).
2) Install the 'Firebug' extension for Firefox from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1843 and restart your browser when requested.
3) Navigate to your router's admin page, and fill in your login details (if you don't know them, it's likely to be the one written on the bottom of your router).
4) Navigate to the router upgrade page (the one where you select the firmware to upload' and select the location of the firmware file, like you would normally. Now, instead of clicking the 'Upload' button, press F12. This should bring up Firebug in the bottom quarter of your screen.
5) Now, click the moz-screenshot.png2193448.jpgbutton at the top of the Firebug panel and then click on the 'Upload' button. This will bring up the code for the upload button, where it does the filename checking. It'll look like this:
b5b0399.jpg

6) It looks like Netgear have actually stripped out the real checking code so it can't be used, so we'll need to fool the page into thinking everything's fine and dandy with the filename so it can update the firmware. Click where it says "return checkData();" and replace it with "return true;".

7) Finally, click the upload button. The router should now accept the file and start updating.

And hey presto! You have a non-nargled wireless router with the latest firmware!

After aol main computer went down they told me to reoncifugre the router i dont know how to do this and as i dont have a home fone line i cnt ring them any help please?


First thing to do is try to connect to the Internet without AOL then sign on to AOL using the broadband connection. When Internet Explorer is open, even without a connection, go to Tools>Internet Options>Connections and check the 'Never Dial a Connection', Click on Advanced and check the 'Automatically Detect Settings' check box. If you are not connecting to the Internet then turn off or unplug the power to the modem, turn it back on and wait 2 minutes. If you don't connect then do the same with the router power. If you still haven't connected using just Internet Explorer, NOT AOL, then talk to your router directly:) Do this by Start>Run>type http://192.168.1.1 (Linksys) or http://192.168.10.1 (Motorola). A logon screen appears. User Name is the manufacturer's name and 'admin' is the password. A web page or dashboard will appear. For a cable modem select DHCP. For DSL select PPPoE. Static addresses can also be entered if you know what they are but probably not. When you see ip addresses listed open Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome or whatever browser flavor you like EXCEPT AOL. Once connected to the Internet then go to AOL. More specifics on your broadband service and hardware makes will get you more specific help if you need. Happy surfing!
