      Question dg834gt firmware confusion

      Hi, Im having wireless connection issues with my dg834gt so I thought a firmware upgrade might fix it, so I checked the version number 1.03.87 but according to Netgear's site, the latest firmware is 1.02.19. So have I a newer version, even though I have never updated my router, or is the netgear site out of date?
      Sorry if this has been answered before.
      cheers

      1.3.87 is the latest SKY firmware for the SKY router which is designed for their specific needs.
      The firmware on the Netgear site is for the standard router.
      If Sky bring out updated firmware the router is updated automatically.

      Ah ok thanks for that. So there is no need to change the firmware then? Would any of the unofficial firmware be of any benifit, like extra features, more stable etc?

      You may wish to visit here DGTeam - The Custom DG834XX Series Router Firmware Web Site - DG834GT - DGTeam Firmware download
      Everything you need if you wish to try out the DGteam firm wear. It basically expands the user interface giving much more to play with. Including the ability to adjust SNRM via a nifty slider. Ability to telenet in to the netgear sandbox back end and run Routerstats etc. Plus lots more.
