Its just a standard Netgear router and it should work ok the only issue seems to be that some have the username password hidden if this is the case a factory reset or a firmware upgrade may solve it.

some details here

A quick google found this fragment of a post on another forum:

It might be like the Sky locked firmware netgears, if you try and upload a vanilla firmware it rejects it, you need to use netgears recovery tool to force a re-flash, and then all is peachy


the grammar is a bit fractured but the meaning's clear enough

and here is a good read about hacking a netgear dg834 including some info about unlocking it (see the section on URL injection).

I haven't tried any of this (don't have a netgear) but it mostly seems plausible
