i've followed the instructions on the netgear website but get this message, and can't go any further.

Upgrade file is not the correct type or version for this device.
Upgrade failed.

Please obtain the correct file and try again.

is sky blocking it or do you need to do this while you are wired in with lan as i'm only able to go on wireless at the moment....

I believe sky have their own firmware on the Router. You can use IM from within web pages now!
look at meebo .com or even yahoo now. You may find after all your pratting with router IM will still be possible.
