DGTeam firmware for Netgear DG834Gv4

I have been searching for Wake-on-LAN solution for months for my Netgear router as I like to shutdown my HTPC and wake it over the internet, but none has been working. Until recently I found out DGTeam has released an updated firmware for DG834XX series early this month, and was eagerly waiting for DG834G turn. Finally after days of browsing, I noticed it is out now.

As I'm using Sky's converted Netgear router and it is DG834v3 equivalent, this means either I try to upgrade the firmware and perform recovery if it failed or buy an used DG834v4 from eBay.

Nikon D90 and D200

I got my Nikon D90 kit yesterday but I only have time to open the box today while I'm working at home waiting to sign a parcel for Cherlyn.

Comparing to the big brother Nikon D200+SB800+17-55mm f2.8, Nikon D90 is smaller and lighter and match well with a Speedlight SB400, a perfect combination to bring for travel along with Nikkor 18-200mm VR.

Got my Nikon D90 kit today, yahoo... and the first thing I want to do is to sell off the kit lens. I'm looking for £160 ex p&p. Lens is brand new, and not mount to any body so you are getting it brand new.
