    How to open a netgear .cfg file?


    Hi,

    I have been sent a config file (.cfg) from a netgear device of some sort and have been asked to have a look through the config but I can't find anything to open the file with.

    I have tried notepad and wordpad, both just come up with scrambled garbage. I have also tried searching on the net and could find nothing.

    Does anyone know what I can use to open and view the file.

    Many Thanks,
    Paul.

    Model?

    But my best guess is you can't; it's probably in binary format...

    You should be able to open the file with a text-editor. How was the .cfg file created? What model netgear device is this?
