hey guys bit of a nooblet here!
Basically in my migration from pipex to sky i had about 3 months of problems from sky pipex and bt all were fools tbh messing me around all the while i had no connectivity since mid december.
anyways my old modam broke half way through my 30 days migration window so what i did was reset my sky router and installed the original netgear firmware so that i could ammend the username and pass to get onto my pipex account.
Well that then halted and i have finally got sky to get me up and running but then................my goddamn os got shafted and i had to buy a new xp pro and reinstall it and now you guessed it i cant locate teh old sky firmware and my router is stuck on the pipex username and pass. for some reason i cannot access the web interface through ie?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Will pressing the reset work? Or does that put it right back to factory set?

are you talking about browsing the files on the disc or reinstalling?
Cause if you are talking about installing it doesnt work cause when you are at the stage where you are"checking connection" it always hits you with the "hmmm not quite ready to go online" gash and i figure that its due to the modem still being set to the pipex user and pass
I will try browsing the disk and see if the old sky firmware is accessable to get my sky user and pass and then il take my router to my mates and hook it up and try the ie interface to see if i can change it but if that doesnt work i dont know what to do other than buy a new router but if anyone has any other suggestions then i would be happy to hear them ?

Maybe firmware is the wrong term. Firmware upgrades the hardware of the router and has nothing to do with username/passwords, the software which controls the connection, is a different thing entirely. Pressing the reset should return the software of the router to it's original setting. What I don't really know is if Sky have included the username/passsword in the 'factory' settings. I would guess that they have and if the OP has lost the username/password, this would be the only chance of recovering it. Someone must have pressed the reset in the past, so should know the result. I am not even sure if all Sky's un/pws are the same or individually tailored to the user.

Browse the cd and go to the utilites folder, in there should be dg834 gt recovery, take the power cable out of ur router, then on the back of ur router u have a little reset button, hold this down and insert the power cable back in and the leds on the front should be flashing (the orange tick and the power light), ur router is now in recovery mode, launch recovery exe in the folder and away you go..
