    Urgent router help

    Basically I tried to update the firmware of my netgear WGT624...and something went wrong. Now it's sat blinking from orange to green. I need a new router ASAP and has to have:

    Wireless
    4 Lan
    Firewall

    I can't find ANYWHERE with a draytek 2900VG/29100VG in stock...scan advertise the 2800VG as a broadband AND ADSL2 router (but it isn't), and they have the standard 2900 which doesn't have wireless

    If anyone knows of anywhere with stock i would be greatful...

    You could do a factory reset.
    resort to your manual to find out how.

    Factory reset does nothing. You just hold a button down, but that does nothing to the firmware.

    Contact Netgear they might have Recovery Utility. I have one for my DG834G.

    the 2900 series AFAIK are cable, not ADSL. Did you perchance flash you Netgear over wireless? You'll be needing the recovery utility as stated above.

    No, it was over wired. And it's pretty dead. I think I've decided on the Draytek Vigor 2910G (out next tuesday). Hopefully it'll perform well coupled with a netgear 108mb nic with attached hawking antennae.
