Netgear DG834G Timezone wrong

Just got up and running. To set the timezone for the DG834G you go to the schedule page and adjust timezone to suit and you can also, optionally, add an ntp server to use.

No matter what I do (tried a few public ntp servers) the router thinks it is 2002-09-08! Plus the time is wrong.

Im on firmware 1.03.00 but reluctant to update unless someone can confirm the update will sort it.

Thanks

Well, I'm using the latest Firmware and my router doesn't have your problem! Be brave, upgrade, it can't do any harm.

Choose the correct time zone and "adjust for daylight" etc.
The router will "go off" in it's own time and get a time/date update from the Netgear server. Do not bother setting a specific server. The time updates with the Netgear server normally happens once a week, it is NOT immediate (hence, leave the router turned on)

Mines done nothing yet? Still saying 2002!

On the schedule page I have adjusted Time Zone and ticked daylight savings adjustment. Nothing else on the page has been ticked or adjusted. Been running for almost a week now.

Be patient, it will. I don't know of any way to force it though.

Time to try upgrading your firmware then. Wink 1.05.00 is out now.

I had this problem so I manually specified a time server: 130.88.202.49

It then updated itself within an hour.
