    I had my netgear working while with pipex and have now moved to TalkTalk. The normal modem from TalkTalk works fine but I am having trouble getting my netgear to connect to the net. By the way pipex have gone down hill which is why I moved away.

Cannot login into my netgear dg834gb v2 for remote management

Here is a site for your new firmware version:,-dg834g-(v1-%26-v2)-firmware-version-2.10.22

Here is a site for your product:

Maybe you have to reset it to factory settings.
There is a button next to the power inlet prees it with a pen.
Here is how you acces the router again:

  • IP address: type this in your browser
  • Username: admin
  • Password: password (Sky-branded units have a default password of sky)
  • Function set to Router + Modem
To access the Setup Wizard installation and configuration program on your router:
  1. Connect your router to a computer by plugging one end of an Ethernet Cable into any of the four LAN ports on the back of your router.
  2. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to or Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  3. To install your router, simply click on the "Setup Wizard" link at the top of the left-hand navigation menu once you are logged into your router.
A video walk-through of installing and configuring your router using the Smart Wizard is available at

Been given 1 but its virgin but my isp is with talktalk, will it work?

Virgin is a cable provider. They give you a cable modem in to which you can plug the router using a network (RJ45) connection. This router is an ADSL modem router.

In other words, it could NOT have been used on Virgin, but it should work with Talk Talk as it is a standard ADSL connection.

Reset the Router back to factory default and enter your details.

Sky branded Netgear DG834GT router

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.
