I purchased a DG834GT off ebay and it arrived today. As excited as I was, to roam the house with laptop under arm, knowing I was 'wi-fi'ing'... Blah Blah.

I tried all the basic attempts to connect to it. I then got a little miffed as peoples comments on this router were,

"Had it running in 3-5 minutes!".

After some research, with our trusty friend google. I find that SKY DG834GT routers are pre-set and that I would have to over-ride/update the software back to the original Netgear software.

I downloaded the fix from netgear. After several unsuccessful attempts via (admin/sky), showing 'unable to upgrade' (I cant remember exactly what it said). I tried the fool proof 'flashing' from this website http://kbserver.netgear.com/release_notes/d102417.asp and once I've selected my ethernet adapter, and click next, the next screen shows up 'DEVICES' but there is nothing there and I am unable to go further.

I've been trying to get this working for about 3 hours solid tonight and I am now well and truely stuck.

I can get it to read my laptop, which has a built in wireless card. Running Windows Vista.

I can also get it to talk to my PC running Windows XP.

This is with a wireless signal and with the ethernet plugged in.

I just cant get any sort of internet connection.

Please help!
