Default DG834G v4 cannot remove antenna

I need to attach an external antenna to my DG834G v4 but it appears that this product changed some where along the product development and now has a moulded collar which cannot be replaced. I have several earlier versions (DG834G v2) of this adsl/router and these did have removable antennas and I've heard that the latest DG834G v5 has gone back to that design - can someone from Netgear confirm that? Also is there a way to determine the version number of the DG834G without opening the package - like a serial number or something on the outside of the box? My Netgear wholesaler says there is no way he can tell the DG834G version number without opening the package. He has over a 100 of these in stock but unless I can provide some way to determine the version number I just have to take pot luck. I require several more of these routers for my applications but will need to purchase elsewhere unless netgear can confirm the details for removal antenna's on v5 and provide a way to distinguish the versions without opening the box.

I'd also like to know if the DG834G v5 is available in Australia yet?
