Hey all,

Just upgraded my firmware on netgear dg8343g version 2 and the Internet light keeps flashing yellow for about 10 seconds, stops then tries again..

all the settings are still there, it says Negotiation: lcp is allowed to come up then keeps refreshing every few seconds

any idea how to fix it

thanks

The recovery utility only works with some ethernet adapters. It visibly jams up if not happy and you have to try with a different computer.


Post a fairly detailed query on Netgear's forum.

May be worth also posting on www.skyuser.co.uk Sky supply a couple of Netgear DG834 derived customised routers and the more skilled users there know them inside out -- may have a solution.

"it picks it up but i cant type in the boxes and it freezes" sounds like the classic Recovery Utility problem.

See if you can borrow another computer or Ethernet adapter -- it's a pest but it may be worth the effort if it salvages the router.

The recovery utility is a rough bit of programming but it does work if you run it on the right network adapter. I tried 3 different computers (one with a Netgear ethernet adapter failed) until a Realtek model worked.

See the tutorial on www.skyuser.co.uk about reflashing the Sky Netgear DG834GT router for details.

jmizoguchi knows his stuff so you're probably best buying new -- 5 years is a pretty good run for a router.
