Latest firmware version for DG834GT?

Hi

I have a DG834GT 108 Mbps Super Wireless ADSL Router with what I believe is the lastest firmware version 1.03.87, however looking at the Netgear page for my router it states the latest FW is V1.03.23 which is an older number.

Can someone please confirm what the correct latest FW version is.

Thanks Smiley Happy

Re: Latest firmware version for DG834GT?

***PLEASE HELP*** novice user and am lost, NOT SURE IF ITS THE FIRMWARE VERSION :mad:

Guys - this is my first time using the netgear forums and i have just signed up today. I have had a netgear product for 7years and not an issue until 3 days ago. I have a netgear DG834GT router and i did a restore factory settings and now the router is constantly dropping the connection to the internet. I have spoke to my ISP and they validated the line, provided me with all my connection details - nothing has changed. I am listening on channel 11, I logged in and fine it connects and i can browse.

However after some time - maybe 45-50minutes, the router disconnects and whipes out the all the previous stored ISP ip addresses from the router admin page.

I am at a loss as to what is going on. I know people have said to update my firmware but I am not sure how to do this or where? I am using a very old version - Firmware Version V1.02.04 ? I did find one link to a DG834GT_V1.03.23.img file, i tried to upload it but the whole router crashed and flashed the internet and wirelss icons flashed amber. The strange thing is, i havent had a problem since the day i bought the router...

Below if my settings:


Firmware Version V1.02.04
ADSL Port
MAC Address 00:18:4D:1A:86:53
IP Address 194.46.122.176
Network Type PPPoA
IP Subnet Mask 255.255.255.255
Gateway IP Address 194.46.32.68
Domain Name Server 194.46.32.136
194.46.32.137

Modem
ADSL Firmware Version A2pB018e.d16f
Modem Status Connected
DownStream Connection Speed 4544 kbps
UpStream Connection Speed 448 kbps
VPI 0
VCI 38
Wireless Port
Name (SSID) NETGEAR
Region Europe
Channel 11
Wireless AP Enabled
Broadcast Name Enabled


Could it be that there is another application (such as my iphone) which is casuing the network to crash?

The idle time is 0 but when i leave the PC alone for any period of time - it crashes

I changed the MTU to 1400....


I am at a loss guys , sorry if this is a desperate call but i am tempted to just go and buy a new router, as the ISP says everything looks good.

Thanks
