      Sky Trial V1 Firmware for Netgear DG834GT

      We are receiving numerous reports from people who are trialling the new V1 Firmware.

      Since day one, the Netgear DG834GT router, that Sky used to give away to people signing up to Sky Broadband, there have been various small niggles with it's performance.

      We know that Sky have worked hard to produce a new, fully functioning FW for this router, and that a lot of the common problems will have now been ironed out.

      Issues included:

      1. UPnP causing lockups
      2. MSN signing out at Midnight
      3. Stability etc

      The fact that Sky have rolled out this new Firmware to their Beta Tester's is a good sign and when rolled out, should hopefully resolve a lot of people's problems whilst connected to Sky Broadband using this router.

      Now.... How long before it is rolled out nationally?

      I don't care about points 1 and 2 and mine has always been quite stable anyway so I hope that this is only rolled out after a lot of testing.

      Judging by some of the PM's received, there are several different versions of the new V1 Firmware being rolled out to the Beta Tester's routers.

      Re: Sky Trial V1 Firmware for Netgear DG834GT

      If sky rolling out new firmware for netgear v1 router to solve some problems with it, then my question is as I have both this one and the sagem v2 that sky sent me which has ive had know problems with so far. Does that mean the firmware on v2 routers is stable or they gonna have to roll out somthing for them eventually or what?.

      V2 routers are stable enough, the whole idea of this V1 FW is to give the same level of stability to the V1 routers.
