Upgrading the Router Software
The routing software (also called firmware) of the WNR834B router is stored in FLASH memory,
and can be upgraded as new software is released by NETGEAR. Your router can download and
install the new software, or you can download upgrade files from the NETGEAR Web site and
manually send the upgrade file to the router using your browser.
The Checking for Firmware Updates screen appears at login unless you deselect Check for
Updated Firmware Upon Log-in.
Tip: To ensure that you are always using the latest router firmware, enable the Firmware
Upgrade Assistant feature so that the router will automatically detect a new version
of the firmware on the Internet and alert you to its availability.
