      Stop Press - New FW - Stop Press

      We have today spoken to Sky about the possibility of having an image of the new FW for the White Netgear DG834GT V1 Router.

      Sky will provide us an image or a download link within the next few days, so that people if they wish can get the updated FW, rather than waiting for their exchange to be upgraded.

      We will be producing a brand new Tutorial, for this process within the next 24 hours, with all the info and download link in one easy location. As per usual if people need any help or info, post in this thread.

      Watch this space!!!!!

      You can now download the new FW - see this thread for info

      Get your Sky V1 Firmware here!

      What a good idea and hopefully Sky can do this for any future upgrades as well.

      Must agree it did seem like a postcode lottery game.

      Does this mean that they will also continue with the automatic upgrade via exchange as well ? I guess so as all the Sky users who arnt visitors here would otherwise not get it.

      Yes, nothing will change roll out wise. People now have a choice, wait or sort their connection out quicker. This can only be good news for SkyUser members, visitors, and of course Sky Customers having problems. Smart move by Sky imho.

      Re: Stop Press - New FW - Stop Press

      If we go along this route and upgrade our routers ourselves via the link we will be given, does that mean they won't try and update it again via the exchange method?

      In other words, if we self upgrade, will sky know and cancel any future attempts to upgrade this firmware?

      in a roundabout way.

      The router checks the server for a more up-to-date version than it currently has. If it finds a more updated version, then the router downloads it.

      Sky dont technically attempt to put the FW on the router, the router decides what to download.
