For those thinking of purchasing the Netgear DG834G V2. Note that there\nis a security issue. Before I go into this I should say apart from this\nit has been rock solid. I have had a Netgear router for a couple of\nyears now and have been and am very happy with it.\n\nWell happy except for when it died. I had a V1 which was rock solid, on\n23/7, until it stopped connecting to the (asdl) internet. But and an\nimportant but, Netgear were very good on replacing it. I was sent a V2\nbut this also did not connect to the internet! They then sent me\nanother V2 which has been rock solid.\n\nSecurity issue (btw I have XP SP2) :\n\nLogin as Admin and\n\n1. Go to : Maintenance, Attached devices - this does not show all\nattached devices connecting to the router. At the moment I have 1 PC\nconnected via lan cable and 3 via wlan. Only 1 of the wlan PCs can be\nseen as being attached and that is intermittent ie just did a refresh\nand it has gone.\n\n2. Go to : LAN IP Setup : Address Reservation - if you reserve an IP\naddress for a given PC ie it's MAC you will find that it does not work\nie I have a PC connecting to the router via WLAN but it did not get\nthe IP address reserved for it (it's MAC - checked and it's the\ncorrect MAC). And worse still a second PC subsequently connecting via\nWLAN obtained that reserved address! Again security issue.\n\nAre Netgear aware? Yes I have been waiting for a fix now since, wait\nfor it : 11/2/2005 7:55:00 PM. I have tried all their suggestions.\nThey even closed the case once without resolving the issue (Netgear,\n"please note that Online Technical Submissions are closed automatically\nafter sometime.") But they have reopened it - Monday, November 14,\n2005.\n\n\nI assume at some point there will be a fix.
