      Non-Sky provider - not working updating DG834GT firmware

      Hi people. I'm so happy to find that website.
      Me and a friend of mine moved from Scotland to Brazil and he brings with his sky router. And guess... doesn't work! He ask me to help him and, for my surprise (or not), it is blocked to use with others providers.
      So I found some tutorials here, but it wasn't work with me!!

      I tried to update with a "fake sky" firmware (from here), and doesn't work.
      I tried to use the Recovery Utility, but it stops when is searching for the device (no MAC number).
      I Enable the telnet, but no login and password works!!

      Another friend of mine told me to open the router and use the serial port with a Jtag Wiggler cable, or to make a serial DB9 cable (conecting TX, RX and GND) and bla bla bla... that is to complicated for me!!! He show me that webpage OpenWrtDocs/Hardware/Netgear/DG834GT - OpenWrt with some information to do that, but still to complicate.

      In real... I want to do the easy (and working) way. I don't know what to do anymore. I'm trying for 3 days... and nothing! I don't like to do new Threads for that kind of question (or problem), but I haven't no choice anymore!!

      Do someone have a firmware working? Or any other idea? Please?

      I appreciated a LOT!!

      Cheers.

      you need to use the recovery util, hard wired to an XP pc (preferably with all security software etc off).

      xome people have reported failures using 1 XP pc, but then sucess when they try a different xp pc.
