Using Netsurf with a Netgear DG934G Modm Router

These are some simple instructions for using the non javascript web browser Netsurf with the Netgear 834G modem/router.

First of all load Netsurf and type in the URL bar and you will be given a dialogue box as seen below

Login screen
Type in the username and password which should be with the documentation with the modem/router, after which you will be redirected to a blank page with the words Loading file... on it, as seen below

Blank page
It is at this point that Netsurf does not load the file, but stops and now if you view the source, by either using the Netsurf menu Page then View source or just hit the F8 key you should see something similar to what is below

The thing to do next is to copy in Netsurf's URL bar at the end of is setup.cgi?next_file=start.htm as seen below

URL bar
This will take you to the modem/router's main display page as can be seen below

Main display page
There are some things that will not display properly in Netsurf, one of them is that there should be a left hand display giving information about what the various setting do, and on the Basic Settings page does not work correctly with the Connection Settings and Show Statistics buttons not working either.

But apart from that everything else seems to work OK with Netsurf. The same principals may work OK with other routers.
