Today I was presented with the challenge of CR2 files.. I must admit, when I was first asked – I didn’t even know what a CR2 file was, apparently it’s a RAW file format used by some of Canon’s digital camera range. For some reason, the file format is not automatically accessible using some of the off shelf photo editing packages. Including photoshop would you believe.
Well I must admit, this is a first for me.. Blogging from the bar of a Premier Inn. Those of you who know me, will know all about the help desk system I have been developing. Well the project is rapidly approaching it’s go-live date so it’s time to deliver the training. So here I am, booked into a ‘swanky’ hotel in preparation for the delivery in the morning.
Firmware upgrades have always been a risky business, due to the ease of ‘bricking’ your device. Basically a failure to complete the upload or upload of a firmware file can result in a near useless device which can often be unrepairable.
- Connect your DG834PN to a power outlet.
- Connect a SINGLE pc* to the DG834PN using an RJ45(Network) cable. (Unplug any other devices as a precaution)
- Download the Netgear Recovery Utility.
- Unzip the utility to a new folder.
- Download the latest available from the Netgear Support Site. (See the downloads tab)
- Unzip the firmware file, and copy it into the same folder as the utility
- Double click the UpgradeWizard.exe
- Click Next, now select the network adapter that your Netgear DG834PN is connected to, Click Next again
- Ensure there is only one device in the list (this should be your DG834PN) highlight it and click Next
- Ensure the MAC address matches the one on the bottom of your router and click Next
- Now, click the Update button.
So… This weekend I decided I would leave the car and take an alternative form of transport to the big city. London seems to rapidly becoming like my second home, but each time I’ve been I’ve simply taken the car.
This time I decide I would leave the stress behind and booked on a swanky 49 seater. Now, I’m not a huge fan of public modes of transport. Generally as you don’t get a great deal of room, luckily for me my uncle operates an executive coach company (http://www.cab-travel.com) So I knew the standards would be high.
So here I am, iPod on MacBook out and iPhone tetthered!
I am pretty open to new methods of transport, as the 4 hour drive can be a bit stressful. Next time I plan on trying the train simply for a bit of variation!
