      Updating DG834GT?

      My DG834GT is now 18months old and is starting to freeze and drop connections.

      So is there anyway to update firmware? I'm running V1.03.87 according to the router status page.

      The firmware will auto update. Chances are that it is not the router but the line starting to get errors. Can you post your stats.

      Stats are ok as far as I can see.
      But it seems that the router locks up every now and then

      Router lock ups can be caused by errors on the line building up until the router trips over.
