      Updating to Latest Firmware - Apple Mac user - Help

      I've tried to update the firmware on my Sky modem/router so that I can use it as an modem/router with talktalk's internet which I'm having to use for a few weeks (don't ask, long story).

      When I try to load the firmware it tells me that it's the incorrect software and to go find one that works (none seem to..).

      I can't use the recovery programme mentioned in other posts as it's Windows.

      Has anybody managed to wipe the sky settings from their modem/router using a Mac? Cheers.

      You can't do it. The only way to alter the firmware is with netgears windows only recovery utility.

      It doesn't work using parallels either. I haven't tried it in boot camp.
