convert DG834N to repeater with firmware

Are there any Netgear wireless repeater firmwares that I can apply to my useless old DG 834N?

I want a functioning repeater that supports WPA2-PSK [AES], like my marvellous WN2000RPT, and was wondering if the chipset in the 834N could do the job.

Due to licensing issues, you can only do this using no encryption or WEP.

You could look at using a custom firmware though.

Ok - thanks for the advice. I've yet to find any 3rd party firmware that works with this thing. DGteam does some, but it just bricks the router. I guess it was useless as a router, and isn't much use even as a paperweight. A woeful device...
Like my DGND3700 though....

Thanks for the advice. This thing always was useless...
Only DGteam does custom firmware for it, as far as I can tell, and that just bricks the device... oh well..
