Hi Rob

Have you used the beta version yet? If so does it work ok and does it increase the distance.

I tried your mirror link but it said 'tut 'tut' etc...

I've fixed the link - I forgot to put the "dg834_and_dg834g_V2_10_17.zip" bit in there.

I haven't upgraded to it yet. I believe the other admin on my board has done though. He has a standard ADSL connection with PN and doesn't do anything fancy on it however I have a permanent VPN tunnel and two when requireds working off mine so I'm a little scared to try the beta.

Installed fine on mine too. With no issues thus far.

I am now locking this thread in favour of the aforementioned one, linked above by morpheus124.
