Visually and internally, this router is almost identical to DG814 which was it’s predecessor. Netgear dg834 manual shows info about the ADSL modem – router with four ports (10/100Mbps) which will allow connection up to four PC’s while more computers can be connected through an additional switch. Like we mentioned, this router is very similar to DG814, except it has 802.11g wireless support. You could say that it is basically an advanced version of old model as they share many features, including the firewall options for controlling in and out traffic, UPnP, DDoS protection, etc. In the box, you will get micro-filter, 3 metre of Ethernet cable, CD-ROM, modem lead cable, and some quick set-up papers. The AC adapter can get fairly warm, so make sure to keep it in a well ventilated area. Since this model was very popular, especially in the UK where it held place number one on the market, you can find many forum discussions when it comes to problems and troubleshooting. Netgear’s models from this series runs Linux, so notable amount of routers was sold to tech savvy users who could use it instead of expensive full Linux routers. As this firmware was built on open-source code, users could build their own systems which would in return offer greater range of features. Make sure to download the right version of the manual. DG834 is for the model without the wireless capability, while DG834G was the model that had built in WiFi. Netgear dg834 manual can be found by clicking on this link.
