      Hello James67.

      I am interested in enabling WOL on my dg934g, using the binary provided here: Wake on lan utility for DG834.
      The problem for me is getting the files onto the router. I dont trust myself (successfully) compiling the dg934g source, and ive had no luck editing the squashfs on the existing image (from the cd).
      So basically I was wondering if you still have a copy of the DG934G-telnet firmware about, or if you if you could give me a hand compiling my own.

      I'd like to thank james for his work on the usually CRC errors, solve the mystery and made a workaround until sky fixed it.

      On the tutorial page you have a guide for accessing username and passwork, but the file does not seem to exsist -- I get a 'Forbidden' error. Has it been removed?

    Sky's router policy

    by James67 on 27-01-08 at 01:52 PM
    Sky are obviously very keen to make sure all its customers are using the router which Sky supplied to them, but why is that? A common explanation is that it makes things easier for customer support. Another reason that some people have suggested is that it's part of Sky company "dogma" - just as you're forced to use Sky's TV receiver, so too are you forced to use Sky's broadband router. There's probably some truth in these points, but I think there's a much bigger reason for this policy,

    As part of my efforts to crack the Sagem router, I managed to accidentally "brick" my Sagem router. Normally, if the router's flash memory has been corrupted, the router goes into a recovery mode which has a stripped-down web server through which you can load a new flash image. Unfortunately, I seemed to have got the router into a state where it was crashing at startup but wasn't going into its recovery mode.

    Then I stumbled upon this link. OK, it's for the Linksys WRT54G

    Cracking the Sagem F@ST 2504 router

    by James67 on 20-01-08 at 09:28 PM
    Now don't get too excited but I've been working on the Sagem router, trying to crack it, although I'm not there yet. Actually, I'll come clean and admit that in fact, I've managed to "brick" my router.

    I bought the router off eBay. I've tested it and it manages to establish a connection to Sky's network, so the username and password are still valid (they haven't been deleted from Sky's authentication server).

    The CD has a router recovery utility, but the flash
