      Is there custom firmware for my router? (DG934G)

      Hi guys,

      I have compared my router with others and the closest match seems to be a DG934G. But I really have no idea if its V2 or V3 (If there is such things)

      I have uploaded pictures and put them bellow.

      The firmware on the router sucks, and feels very very limited > it just lacks so many features.

      I wanted to know if there is custom firmware for my particular box and if its stable enough so it wont brick my router. I am aware that there are two types of these boxes which share a similar design, Sagem and Netgear. I can safely say this is a Netgear box.

      Please help!






      edit: by custom firmware i mean something similar to openwrt or tomato

      If you only have one router I would advise against flashing it. There is always a chance that the flash will go wrong and leave you without a router till you can buy another from Sky. If you flash the router with 3rd party firmware, it ceases to be a 'Sky' router so you would be as well buying a router which will give you the settings you want, plus wireless N should you want it. Keep the Sky router in case you run into problems with which you need Sky supports help.
