Ok so I upgraded my Netgear DG834Gv4 firmware via Wi-Fi (don't laugh!)

You already know I Bricked my router!

I found this Utility which recovered my v4 despite being only designed for V1 and 2 routers,

I discovered that the utility is only compatible with Windows XP and certain NIC's I was unsuccessful with a Motherboard integrated Intel Pro 100/VE but was successful with a Realtek 8139 clone

Hope this helps, may even refer it myself one day!

Thanks David, I didn't know about that tool.

Did you happen to try the 30/30/30 hard reset (here's another explanation) before you used that utility?

Yes I did use the 30/30/30 method, but as the router was not completely bricked (I realise I didn't make that clear) the 30*3 method did not work as the router was in recovery mode (expecting firmware to be flashed)

The power light was flashing red/green very fast, like a strobe!

I have since put DGTeam firmware on the router, with much improved controls

What is it they say about the gas station out in the middle of nowhere with the plastic Jesus on the register? :D

I already like them!

I haven't heard of that firmware. What made you choose that one specifically?

Well That router seems to be time limited, it has been run 24/7/365(except when blackouts longer than my UPS could deal with) since new!

Oh Wait I had better express Days/Week/Year like this 24/Week/365 seeing as Americans express the date wrongly also :)

So 5/12/2005 is 5/Dec/2005 and not May/12/2005!! Honestly you could have at least completely reversed the date format like the Chinese! I say this because it does create confusion, perhaps I should run for US president to change this?? So I wonder is their a nice US "female" I can marry to get one's "Green card"?

I wonder how many people go off their own topic?
