      Upgrading firmware

      Hi there
      Just wanting to upgrade my sky router's firmware but it wont let me. I have v.1.01.28 and downloaded version 1.02.04. When i go to upload the file through the routers interface it says "wait a few minutes" then comes back and says that this version is incompatible with this model? Now im wondering why it wont let me plus im wondering if there is any point and wilkl there be any improvement in the routers performance.
      regards, Dan

      Re: Upgrading firmware

      The Sky firmware is not a standard Netgear version. See Tutorials here on extracting the concealed Sky user name and password code which is a must before reflashing the router as a standard Netgear model.

      Not for the fainthearted -- and (I think) there's no guarantee of any performance gains.
