If it is the Netgear DG834GT based router then reflash it with the DGTeam firmware and eBay it.

Reflashing it with Netgear's own firmware will make it more sellable.

those old 834GTs (have a proper one myself) are good routers.

Their age means you'd probably do well to get a tenner for it these days.
