  1. My router is a Netgear DG834G, current firmware: 4.01.37.

    I notice there is a firmware update for V4:

    Has anyone here successfuly applied that update, please?

    But .. did you need the 5.01.16 version ? Will this version correct a
    bug you have ? Or just want to have the "last version" ?

  3. For a time I thought perhaps yes.
    I do prefer to have the latest, but it was the impending DNSSEC
    change (May 5th - see
    that for a time led me to suspect there might be an associated router
    update. (I now don't think that's necessary.)

    I had till now 3 or 4 different modem/router and i never do any firmware
    upgrade. Because i never had problems, and because an upgrade is always
    a risk.
    I had a pda who experienced problem in the gps part. I have look around
    in internet about my problem. I hoped that upgrading the windows on the
    pda will correct my problem. So i upgrade it in the flash memory of my
    pda (taking a risk) The problem did not go away. Finally i solved my
    problem by decreasing the clock speed of the pda.

    My rule no. 1. If all is well, leave it alone.
