Great Engineering Netgear!

This was absolutely astounding. I bought a WGR614 from umart today, brought it home, plugged it in, configured my router so that I could route to the 192.168.1.0/24 network (necessery to get to the web interface), then attempted to get to http://admin:password@192.168.1.1/ in my browser.

http://192.168.1.1/ javascript redirects to http://www.routerlogin.com/welcome.htm

http://www.routerlogin.com/welcome.htm 302 redirects to http://www.netgear.com/welcome.htm

http://www.netgear.com/welcome.htm is a 404.

Great work netgear!

if("1" == "1")
location.replace("http://www.routerlogin.com/welcome.htm");
//location.replace("http://192.168.1.1/welcome.htm");
else
location.replace("start.htm");

Going to http://192.168.1.1/welcome.htm seems to work. I'm going to go finish setting up my router now.

On review of the docs, apparently netgear routers hijack the DNS for routerlogin.{com,net}, which is insane. Blah.

That's wonderful. Actually, security camera system has upgraded police and defense work. It keeps criminal records and also helps solving cases.
