A menu is also provided for upgrading the router. From the main menu of the browser interface,
under the Maintenance heading, select Router Upgrade to display the upgrade menu.
From this menu, you can check for new software versions by clicking the Check button. If a new
version is found, you can have it downloaded and installed in one step. Alternatively, you can
manually install an upgrade file stored on your computer.
Upgrading Automatically to New Router Software
If you have enabled Check for Updated Firmware Upon Log-in, your router will alert you to the
new software when you log in. Otherwise, you can click the Check button in the Router Upgrade
menu to search for new software.
Tip: Before upgrading the router software, use the router Settings Backup menu to save
your configuration settings. A router upgrade might revert the router settings back to
the factory defaults. If so, after completing the upgrade, you can restore your
settings from the backup.
