I don't have that router, but small Netgear routers (DG834 series) respond to 

or if you have telnet access:

snmpd br0 nas0

I recall having to delete a particular firewall rule with e.g.:

iptables -D INPUT 1

where 1 was the firewall rule I had to delete to allow access to SNMP.  Have 
look at the list of rules by:

iptables -L INPUT --line-numbers
